SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:
-6:30pm | Adobe Story Overview with Steve Whatley of Adobe
Steve Whatley of Adobe will join us for an overview of Adobe Story. Adobe Story begins the planning and preproduction phase of video workflows and will be integrated with other Adobe products, including future versions of the Adobe Creative Suite® product family. Developed to create more efficient video production workflows while reducing production costs, Adobe Story automatically turns content in scripts into relevant metadata that can be used throughout the production process.
From Script to Screen
Adobe Story offers many ways to simplify the production process, reduce costs and bring new efficiencies to camera operators, editors, directors and others involved in the project development. Once information, such as script location and character biographies, are captured or entered into Adobe Story the valuable metadata will automatically flow into other products in the Creative Suite Production Premium toolkit, improving the efficiency for capturing clips and editing footage. When the video production is ready for online distribution, the metadata can also help viewers discover and search through content online to find their favorite characters, episodes or scenes, making the entire viewing experience more interactive and engaging.Collaborative Scriptwriting
Scriptwriting typically goes through several phases: initial outline, several drafts, final draft, shooting script and creation of a production shot list that accompanies the final script. Adobe Story is designed to help simplify and accelerate this process for virtually any creative endeavor.
With Adobe Story, project participants have a visually rich environment where they can share their ideas at any time. Users can create a script from scratch using Adobe Story, leveraging its industry-standard formatting. They also can import scripts into Adobe Story from a variety of applications, including Microsoft Word, Final Draft or export into Adobe PDF, text, XML, Movie Magic and CSV. Project participants can use Adobe Story to work online and offline and automatically synchronize input and comments once they connect to the Internet. During this phase, the software captures metadata such as scene locations and other pertinent information automatically, creating a more efficient end-to-end workflow.
