Your customers often need super deeds and don’t know where to turn. They may not realize that under your mild mannered exterior lies a Rich Media Superhero.
This session will help you discover the super powers you already have. They are often hidden until a wise mentor shows you how to control them. Learn how to speak the language of rich media creation, how to channel your existing skills and how to load your utility belt to defeat any deadline or project constraint.
Often, it’s just a matter of translating the language of your home planet into the language of rich media. We’ll reveal the vocabulary of rich media so you can communicate more effectively with peers, contractors and vendors.
Through a discussion of rich media creation processes you’ll discover your hidden super powers; what mortals call “transferable skills.” Many of the activities that you do every day have an equivalent activity in the mortal world. Planning and budgeting a project will take on a new energy as you learn how to channel those powers in the rich media world. And you’ll find out about new powers like scripts, storyboards and breakdowns. There may be no limit to your abilities!
Many superheroes rely on a full utility belt of hardware and software to aid them in their search for truth, justice and effective training and documentation. After this session you’ll know how to load your utility belt so you can be a champion. Cameras, editing software, Flash and media streaming can be like a child’s playthings in your capable hands.
Often the most powerful ability is the simplest one. So, we’ll start with a focus on the basics. But if the attendees are ready we’ll discuss stronger super powers.
The question you must answer is: “Are you ready to learn more about your rich media super powers?”
Wait! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s you, Rich Media Superhero!
