About the Presenter: Steve Holyhead
Steve’s education began with 16mm film, and he transitioned to videotape when he started his career in television. In Toronto in the mid 1990s, he edited his first TV series using Avid Media Composer. Steve quickly became an expert user of Media Composer and other non-linear editing systems, and he began training others in how to use them. He is known for masterfully synthesizing complex information into a plain-English, user-friendly learning experience.
In 1999, Steve post-produced and edited Wilfred, one of the very first UK 35mm digital intermediate (DI) projects. Since 2000, through his work in the Hollywood and Burbank production communities, Steve has become an expert in HD cameras, film and DI processes, file-based production, and visual effects.
He has worked for world-class media and technology companies, including Autodesk, Avid, BBC, and Discovery Communications, in addition to running his own company BloomCast.
