Alan's resume spans over twenty four years of post-production experience and includes a long list of credits in editorial as well as visual effects. He resides in Los Angeles with his wife and two children and 16 chickens.
Also, a presentation by Noam Kroll: Brother Sister – A Feature Film Workflow
Sundance submission – shot on a Black Magic cinema camera edited in raw and cut FCP X. Filmmaker Noam Kroll will go through a step by step analysis of the Final Cut Pro X raw workflow that he implemented on his latest narrative film, which was shot on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. Noam will discuss the benefits of using DaVinci Resolve as part of this workflow, but will also shed light on alternative workflows that were considered for the project, and may be more efficient for productions with different requirements.
The presentation will aim to explain the fundamental characteristics that Noam believes allow for a creative working environment that places more focus on spending time making decisions and experimenting, and less time trouble shooting and dealing with workflow problems and software work arounds.
By using his straightforward workflow, editors working with raw Blackmagic footage will be set up for a simple and easy offline/on-line process. More details pertaining to his workflow can be found on his blog.

Music by David Shire
Lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr.
Directed by Scott LaFeber
The excitement of young love and the confusion of growing up (or is it the other way around?) are explored in this intimate revue from one of the most respected teams in the contemporary musical theatre, Richard Maltby, Jr. and David Shire. Using songs from their various early musicals (produced or otherwise), this bold, extroverted journey takes a winsome cast of three through the maze of modern relationships with its heart firmly on its sleeve. As with all of Maltby and Shire's work, each song is an impeccably crafted story: original, engaging, bursting with character, and showcasing the versatility and charisma of its performer. From tender ballads to hysterical husband-hunting laments, from wry comments on trendy marriages to ecstatic shouting-from-the-rooftop celebration, Starting Here, Starting Now has an appealing freshness that has made it a perennial favorite throughout the world.
