SpeedGrade Profiled at Adobe&Filmmakers Event

We had a special gathering on November 15 when a group of Soho filmmakers and postproduction pros gathered at the Covent Garden hotel in London to hear about the all-Adobe production workflow on Wayland’s Song, an independent feature which will premiere in the spring of 2013.

Director Richard Jobson gave a lively presentation on the project, and described in detail how the Adobe tools enable him to deliver high production value on modest budgets. He does it with vigorous storytelling, well-crafted scenes, and immersive soundtracks.  Those who know their music history will recognize the name: Richard was lead singer for The Skids, a popular punk rock band in the late 70’s and early 80’s.

For the past decade Richard has been very active as a filmmaker, producing visually rich pieces, powerfully influenced by the Expressionist art movement.

We’re proud to report that the Wayland’s Song team used the whole suite of Adobe CS6 production tools:

Colorist Dado Valentic spoke about the color grading workflow with SpeedGrade. He described how changing to the palette impacts the narrative, in one scene even subtly altering the storyline – just through the use of color!

A full house at the Covent Garden screening room enjoyed the presentations and the opportunity to mingle and chat during the reception afterwards. We loved it, too! We love to meet the artists who use our products, hear about their work, and learn what they need from us to take their art further.

Special thanks for Richard Jobson and his team for joining us for Adobe&Filmmakers.
