(Santa Monica, California--April 22, 2013) The venue for the first annual “Production Pipeline Expo” has been changed to RALEIGH STUDIOS,5300 Melrose Ave, Stages 10 and 14, Hollywood, CA, 90038. The two day event takes place May 3-4. The announcement was made today by Anthony Horn, Founder of the event.
The Production Pipeline Expo will include a presentation by The Creative-Cartel of their new workflow software, “Joust,” which made a big splash at the 2013 NAB show. Until now, Joust was only available internally at The Creative-Cartel, and was most recently used on the upcoming M. Night Shyamalan film “After Earth.” Joust is now available to be used by any film or television production. Jenny Fulle, CEO at The Creative-Cartel will be conducting demos of the new tool during the Production Pipeline Expo.
The first annual Production Pipeline Expo 2013 will address the creation, development, management, and delivery of content across film, television, and games along all the disciplines involved within an actual production pipeline, with special attention paid to all major portions of the creation process.

Streamlining the management of the digital workflow, Joust can save productions hundreds of thousands of dollars in traditional budget line items such as VFX pulls and conform. It also brings incredible efficiency to the production process. It is a tool designed to automate and put control of all of the digital and meta-data in the hands of production where it can be accessed and utilized quickly and efficiently. Joust acts as a repository for all digital and meta-data during principal photography, including data wrangling, script and camera notes as well as pertinent color information for each shot.
Once the digital and metadata is collected, Joust becomes a powerful tool for production and post-production with features that include a dailies and vendor review system, the ability to create bid packages, watermark images, and automate vendor submissions. Additionally, Editorial is able to interact with Joust to manage plate pulls and transcoding so that VFX plates are delivered to the vendors in hours, not days. And finally, Joust allows production to do a partial conform – either as a rolling conform throughout the show or when turning over reels for final DI.
Joust allows information to be securely viewed anyplace, any time, by approved team members, using any desktop or mobile device with an internet connection and is also designed to communicate with any database or asset management system so there is virtually no learning curve.
