- Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve- Alexis Van Hurkman and Special Guest
It's SuperSecret. Presentation description coming soon.

Alexis Van HurkmanAbout Alexis Van Hurkman
In Alex's words: "I divide my time working as a writer, director, and colorist. Based in Manhattan, I do color correction for a wide variety of broadcast programming, narrative and documentary features and shorts, spots, and experimental subjects. I’ve color-corrected programs that have aired on The History Channel, The Learning Channel, BBC Four, and WNET; features and shorts I’ve graded have played at the Telluride, Sundance, Tribeca, Hamptons, and Amsterdam film festivals, among many others; video art pieces I’ve worked on have been exhibited at the NYC Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), the Whitney Museum of American Art, and San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. You can check my IMDB listing to see my latest specific credits."

 


- iZotope Presents: Tips for Getting Professional Sounding Audio - Bob Bronow
No one deals with crabbier audio than Bob Bronow, sound mixer for Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch. Bob’s unenviable challenge is to clean up the sound of crab boat mayhem, and he’s passed with flying colors, earning two Emmy Awards, four CAS Awards and a Golden Reel Award for his labors.

His devotion to audio quality isn’t about accolades, though. It’s about the audience. After all, the show’s footage might capture a thrilling scene, but if there was distracting noise or unintelligible dialogue, the audience would lose interest. The same is true for even the tamest video production—though sound is invisible, the quality of the sound is essential to both your production value and the viewer’s emotional experience.

Fortunately for us all, you can work miracles with the latest audio repair tools, which can give you professional sounding productions in just a few simple steps. In this talk, Bob will walk us through his workflow, showing how software like iZotope’s RX 3 can give you instant results...even if you’re not an audio expert.

Bob BronowAbout Bob Bronow
Bob Bronow is a re-recording mixer and sound designer working in television and documentary film for the past twenty years. Bob Bronow is known for his work on Deadliest Catch (2005), Monster Garage (2002) and 1000 Ways to Die (2008).

In addition to mixing eight seasons of Deadliest Catch, Bob's credits include Ax Men, Bering Sea Gold: Under the Ice, The Colony, 1000 Ways to Die, American Masters: Carol Burnette & Bob Newhart and the feature documentary The Wrecking Crew.

Bob has received eight Primetime Emmy nominations with two wins in addition to four CAS award wins for my work on Deadliest Catch. Bob has served on the Sound Peer Group executive committee and the Board of Directors for the Cinema Audio Society. Bob also regularly speaks and teaches master classes at universities around the country to share insight and promote the craft of sound to future mixers.
