Press Luncheon

MAXON holds its fifth annual “First Day of NAB” press luncheon on Monday, April 8th, where Paul Babb, president/CEO, MAXON US, will discuss the latest advances in the company’s 3D product line up. Babb will also be joined by a special guest to preview some exciting, industry-changing developments. [Invitation only.]

Guest Artist Presentations

At the booth, some of today’s hottest professional 3D motion graphics designers and visual effects artists using MAXON software will provide insight into how CINEMA 4D helps solve complex production challenges and inspires the making of award-winning feature films, broadcast graphics, commercials, and more.

Earlier this month, MAXON and Adobe Systems Incorporated announced they had entered into a strategic alliance and would begin collaborating on solutions that would simplify and further integrate a pipeline between Adobe® After Effects® software and CINEMA 4D to give users a seamless 2D/3D workflow. Visitors to both the MAXON and Adobe booths at NAB will also see presentations demonstrating the production-friendly and robust connectivity that presently exists between these powerhouse 2D and 3D software toolsets.

Guest presenters currently confirmed include:

Nick Campbell (Greyscalegorilla), John LePore (creative director, Perception), Barton (founder, Already Been Chewed), EJ Hassenfratz (owner & motion graphic artist at Eyedesyn; Lynda.com author), Colin Evoy Sebestyen (motion graphics artist; instructor, Academy of Art University and California College of the Arts in San Francisco), Kevin Aguirre (lead animator, Cake Studios), Brian McCauley (creative director & 2D/3D animator), Mike Szabo (motion designer, Big Mike Design), Donovan Keith (freelance animator, CINEMA 4D trainer, Lynda.com author, and technical director).
