J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Hosting Free Avid Post Production Webinar on 'Star Trek Into Darkness'
Unless you’ve completely ignored any and all exposure to mainstream media over the past five to ten years — particularly television and cinema — you’ve probably heard of Bad Robot. With productions like Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Lost, Alias, and Cloverfield, there’s no doubt they exert major force on both popular culture and blockbuster art. All of which makes it very exciting to report that the next Avid Pro Video Webinar will feature none other than the post team of Bad Robot themselves, bringing you behind the scenes of their processes and workflows — and from the looks of things, specifically regarding CEO J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness.
Here’s some of the things you may have missed from Bad Robot (please note the anamorphic lens flare that appears in the director’s title card in our first trailer):
And here’s a few bits on the free webinar straight from Avid — where you can also sign up (it’s free) to tune in on Monday, December 10 at 11 a.m Pacific / 3 p.m. Eastern:
Join host Matt Feury, pro video marketing manager at Avid, and the editorial, audio, and VFX teams at Bad Robot for a discussion on the innovative workflows the teams created to help them commandeer the story and action at warp speed for the upcoming movie, Star Trek into Darkness.
- See how concurrent collaboration enables the teams to create more inspired content
- Hear how the editors create full 5.1 temp audio mixes in Media Composer while they cut
- Gain insight into J.J.’s workflow and the special elements that he himself creates
- Take a peek at their unique workflow, featuring Media Composer, Pro Tools, and ISIS
- Get your questions answered by the Bad Robot team in a live Q&A
Though not all of us may consider ourselves post-centric types of filmmakers, this should prove to be an insightful experience either way. Bad Robot is undeniably a powerhouse, and it will be fascinating to see what techniques the team uses on high-level productions like Star Trek.
I guess I’ll see you guys at the webinar!
