It’s a big night for us tomorrow as it’s the European premiere at the 56th BFI London Film Festival of a new movie we‘ve been heavily involved with – A Liar’s Autobiography – The Untrue Story of Monty Python’s Graham Chapman.

It’s an animated tribute to the late Graham Chapman which tells his life story (both real and fantasy) in 17 different animation styles by 14 different studios, with Adobe Creative Suite Production Premium instrumental in the production process.

Check out this video to learn about the making of the film and the filmmakers’ experiences using the latest versions products including Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Flash Professional, and Photoshop Extended.

Over the next few days, we’re in Amsterdam for this year’s IBC Show, and we’re excited to announce that we’ll be showcasing some great new video technologies that are really helping the broadcast and video industries to evolve and meet the demands of today’s viewing public!

 

One of the highlights for us will be the reveal of Adobe Anywhere for video – a modern, collaborative workflow platform that will give teams using our professional video tools – such as Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects – the ability to work together across virtually any network, using shared media. They’re products that together with the rest of our Creative Suite Production Premium and Creative Cloud, are being using by a number of the leading broadcasters and global news agencies, including the Associated Press, Bloomberg and CNN.

We’re also announcing several new collaborations with broadcast solution partners at the show who will support integrated workflows with our video tools. These include media asset management and graphics companies who are leading in the broadcast news and sports sectors – such as Chyron, Dalet, EVS and Vizr.

Not only that, but anyone with Final Cut Pro or Avid who fancies switching to Adobe CS6 Production Premium or Creative Cloud, can take advantage of a promotion we’re currently running offering up to 40% off! You can find all the information on the Adobe website.

If you’re at the show, be sure to pay us a visit. We’ll be at the Adobe booth in Hall 7, Booth 7.G27 in the RAI Exhibition and Congress Centre. For anyone that didn’t make it to Amsterdam, we’ll be keeping everyone up to speed on the show from here.

Let us know what you think of this year’s show and are most excited about seeing!

How to deploy Adobe Creative Suite 6 across your campus this Summer

If your University’s looking to deploy Adobe Creative Suite 6 (CS6) across campus this summer, then this one’s for you. We’ve created a bunch of resources to help ensure a smooth installation process using Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition (AAMEE).

In a nutshell, AAMEE is a straightforward and customisable way to wrap CS6 applications as MSI or PKG packages for silent deployment across your campus. It means you can automatically enter and validate volume serial numbers over the internet prior to installation, choose which applications are installed, disable automatic updates, and turn off manual registration.

Take a look at this onDemand eSeminar to find out more. You can also download free guides and toolkits by clicking here.

#CreativeWeekUK Finishes on a High!

We went out with a bang on Day 5 of #CreativeWeekUK with a packed studio for our very last live debate. Four great panellists – Glyn Dewis (@GlynDewis), Erin Moroney (@erin_moroney), Timothy Allen (@timothy_photo) and Richard Curtis (@richardcurtis) – spent the best part of an hour debating whether digital photography is ‘all tech and no talent’. All the talk around digital retouching certainly kept things interesting and the discussion continued long after the cameras stopped rolling – both in the studio and on Twitter. It was the perfect end to #CreativeWeekUK.

Throughout #CreativeWeekUK, thousands of you got involved on Twitter by tweeting your questions and opinions to the #CreativeWeekUK hashtag. In fact the latest figures show that in total #CreativeWeekUK was mentioned 5,443 times. And thanks to you all, we even trended on Twitter!

All the live shows were broadcast online from studios in the heart of London, and we were very lucky to have Tower Bridge as our backdrop for the week. But if you missed any of it, or want to watch some of the lively debates, show and tell sessions or product showcases again, then you can download it all on-demand at your leisure from here.

The question on everyone’s lips was whether smaller production budgets make for more original content. Day 3 of #CreativeWeekUK saw us discuss how smaller budgets have become a natural by-product of the contracting broadcast and cinematography markets, and the implications that has had on creativity and quality standards.

We were joined by three great panelists for our live debate at the start of the day. Dan Jones (Maverick TV), Marc Goodchild (ex BBC) and Justin Weyers (Made Visual Studios) chatted about everything from independent productions and YouTube testing, right through to how the skills of hungry graduates can be best used in industry and what the future of video production has in store.

As always, the #CreativeWeekUK Twitter community played a huge part in the debate, with contributions including whether new technologies and production tools raise standards or just client expectations. And they also had their say in our daily poll with 90% of people agreeing that smaller budgets do make for more original content. What can we say…get creating!

We also welcomed Jason Levine over from the US who spent some time showing off the latest video tools Adobe has to offer including the new, streamlined Premiere Pro interface.

If you want to catch up on any of this week’s shows, then be sure to visit our website. Plus there’s still time to get involved in the final couple of days of #CreativeWeekUK by taking part in our competition. We’d love to hear from you!
