Premiere Updates.jpg

Today we are doing something a little different. This is not an interview where I connect with different creatives and learn about their creative journey. Instead I discuss my thoughts on the latest version of Adobe Premiere and what it means for filmmakers, editors and creatives.

I have been a long time Adobe user. I absolutely love how their products have given creatives the ability to create work that matters. In this episode I break down some of the new features coming to Adobe Premiere and why I think they are significant.

On this episode of Render Time I connected with VML Senior Art Director, Ryan Dowling. Ryan and I met back in 2013 when we were both attending the VCU Brandcenter. After graduating from the Brandcenter Ryan was an Art Director at Crispin Porter + Bogusky where he created work for Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, Hotels.com, Aspen Dental and others.

It was also great to hear Ryan's perspective on the work that he has been involved with and how technology will continue to influence things. I also really enjoyed hearing his opinions on where commercial production is headed and how it is impacting agencies like VML.
