(Atlanta, Georgia--April 9, 2013) Millions of creatives the world over know editor & Post Production specialist Walter Biscardi, Jr. thanks to the CreativeCow.net website where he has shared knowledge and advice to countless people since 2000. Over 25,000 online posts later, Walter is sticking to his roots of helping to educate his production and entertainment peers.
With the launch of WalterBiscardi.com, Biscardi will provide a robust platform of education and development to both budding professionals and veterans of the industry.
"I wanted to create a medium where people could learn from others who earn their living "in the trenches" day in, day out, meeting deadlines and having to push creative limits on a regular basis. So WalterBiscardi.com is brought to you not by professional trainers, but what I call professionally certified artists
," said Walter Biscardi, Jr. "What you absolutely will not find on this site is a professional trainer who does little more than read a manual and then regurgitate back to you and call it training. The idea here is to look beyond just the technical and get into the craft of what we do in all aspects of Production and Business. Once you know how to push buttons, you need to know what to do next to have a successful career in this industry. We plan to be that resource."
WalterBiscardi.com expects to be an effective resource by not only offering webinars and on demand-based education, but live workshops in Atlanta, GA as well. Such as the recent two day Blackmagic Cinema Camera workshop with Marco Solorio held at Biscardi Creative Media. Regardless of how participants learn best, online or in-person, Biscardi believes in making valuable knowledge accessible to everyone.
The site itself will house extended modules, tutorials and and advice from creator Walter Biscardi, Jr. along with other hand-selected artists in the industry with varying focuses from Editorial, Sound Design, Color, Photography, Producer, Public Relations, Research & Development, and Business Development & Growth. One such contributor is colorist Ron Anderson whose impressive list of projects and credits span 30 years and range from the NASA Space Shuttle launches, to feature films, nationally syndicated television shows such as Tyler Perry's "The House of Payne" and numerous commercial clients.
The caliber of knowledge visitors can expect is nothing short of the best. Said Walter of the site, "No one person can know and teach everything. The contributors that you will find on WalterBiscardi.com are the people I regularly look to learn from. They understand not only the equipment and software, but how you need to operate in order to meet deadlines, specifications and manage time. At the end of the day, this is a service based industry and to serve both yourself and your clients better, you need to better understand the craft and business side of our industry. The team we're assembling truly believes in quality and we all look forward to building a distinguished catalog over the next few months and years."
WalterBiscardi.com is an initiative of Walter Biscardi, Jr. and Biscardi Creative Media. For more information visit http://www.walterbiscardi.com
