Createasphere has announced the participating speakers for its Post Production Master Class, taking place October 7 at the Westin New York Grand Central.

Topics to be discussed include: 4K and Beyond; Social Media and Post; and Thriving in Today’s Post World. The limited class size allows for maximum interaction with the speakers, and attendees will come away with a fresh career perspective and new business contacts. The $45 registration fee also includes an evening reception with attendees from the Digital Asset Management Conference, held in conjunction with PPMC at the same venue.

“This is a unique kind of class for post professionals and students,” said Kristin Petrovich Kennedy, president of Createasphere. “Rather than offering hands-on training, which there is already plenty of, the PPMC provides real-world advice and information attendees can use to help further their careers.”

The Post Production Master Class will also be held in Los Angeles on November 7 during the Entertainment Technology Expo at the Burbank Airport Marriott.
