Two worlds collide
I’ve had many careers in my lifetime, one of them being a deejay in the 1990s London club scene. I regularly deejayed at clubs like FF at Turnmills, Mix it at Heaven, The Fridge, The legendary Bell in Kings Cross, and the good old Market Tavern. I gave it all up in about 1993 to follow my heart and find a way of making a living from my art, through motion graphic design. It’s taken me to places I never expected to be and here I am, Creative Director of a software company – sometimes I wonder how the hell I got here!
Anyway, next Sunday I’ll be marrying two of my worlds. We, GridIron Software, will be at IBC next week, partnering with Apple to show how our products can integrate and improve the production workflow. I’ll be working with Apple, showing how to get the best from Flow and their new Final Cut Studio.
Apple and GridIron will also be partnering on some other stuff that includes our IBC Party. We’ll be celebrating with our industry friends, the success of Flow which has recently had some amazing reviews. We’ll have a short introduction from our CEO and founder, Steve Forde, followed by a talk on Screen Design by our very own Mark Coleran, who designed screeen graphics for hollywood movies such as Tomb Raider, The World is not Enough, and the Bourne Identity. Mark left his career in Screen Graphic Design and joined GirdIron Software to work on the user experience and interface for Flow.
I’ll be dusting down my headphones, providing the MC services and also deejaying after Marks talk. I’ll be playing a mixture of music to suit everyone but please feel free to ask for requests by using the comments section below. The event is for pre-registered guests only but we have a few spare tickets available at the exhibition.
