Matt Silverman of Phoenix Editorial is scheduled to appear at an SF Cutters "End of the Year Bash" on Monday Dec 3. This meeting is being hosted by Adobe Systems at the 601 Townsend building in San Francisco; other details are coming soon.
Matt's presentations are always interesting and show subtle details on how he uses AE with a gumbo of other tools. He'll be showing some very recent work done for HBO. You can check out some of his work on the Phoenix Editorial website in the "classic" and recent work sections.
