We’re excited to let everyone know about our friend ProductionHUB‘s newly desgined website that will make finding resources, hiring professionals and looking for work simple, streamlined and mobile-friendly.
The following is taken from ProductionHUB’s blog and will let you know what you can expect when you visit their new site!
THE NEW PRODUCTIONHUB IS HERE
In the fast-paced production industry, it’s important for ProductionHUB to keep evolving. That’s why we decided it was time for a completely new look. We took this as an opportunity to match our content, messaging and interface to the same level of quality as our trusted crewing services. Our vision is to make production easier for all, and it’s time our website communicates who we are and why we should be your first stop before the cameras start rolling.
ProductionHUB has been around for nearly 20 years, and we’ve used that experience to fine tune our services to completely accommodate your needs. In this update, we cleared away the clutter so you can focus on the important details for your production and find exactly what you need — no matter where your production may take you. You’ll still find the same expansive network of 150,000 qualified professionals, request board full of project leads for all crew positions around the world and job board with the latest full-time and part-time production industry jobs.
• A simplified main navigation: Get to where you need to go in a click of a button. We cleared the clutter to make way for the most important tools on our website so you can quickly find the resources you need.
• An improved search functionality: We made it easier for you to find what you’re looking for. Right from the homepage, you can easily search for crew and vendors by category and location.
• An overhauled My Account area: Everything you’ll want to access on ProductionHUB is now conveniently located in your My Account area. Manage your profile, post jobs, respond to messages and even contribute to our blog all in the new My Account.
• Streamlined user-funnels to help you easily navigate the website: We grouped the most logical pages together so, whatever you’re looking to accomplish, you’ll know exactly what your next step is.
• Developed mobile-first: We know production professionals are rarely working from a traditional office. Leave the laptop at home — the website is mobile-friendly so you can find and hire local crew and vendors on-the-go.
ProductionHUB first launched as an online alternative to production guides and the yellow pages. Our core services have expanded beyond that into the most trusted resource for finding qualified and experienced crew, vendors and employees. We improved the management tools to help you easily manage everything you need to get done on ProductionHUB. Whether you’re looking for employees and crew or jobs and clients — or both! — we made it easy for you to get a job done. Or just get a job.
Our community is what makes ProductionHUB shine. Without every single one of our 150,000 profiles, we wouldn’t be where we are today. That’s why we decided to give credit where credit is due. Throughout the website, we highlight Featured Profile members from all over, in all different disciplines. This is to celebrate the breadth and depth of talent within our global network of creative professionals. If you’d like to be considered for one of these exclusive positions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The new website celebrates the film and video production in our DNA. With our years of experience, production know-how and a meticulous verification process, it’s no surprise that we’re known as the industry’s most trusted tool. Our team is made of people that have worked in the industry; from large production companies, like the Walt Disney Company and NFL Films, to creative agencies and feature film productions. Everyone at ProductionHUB understands what it’s like to be in your position so we can anticipate and accommodate your needs and provide practical solutions. Unlike many other companies, you will actually speak to a human when you call us. We’ve been working hard on bringing this major update to you and we hope you enjoy using it. Go ahead, get to know the new ProductionHUB.
This month’s meeting was full of Halloween spirit as we decorated Roth Hall with pumpkins, bats, spiders and ghosts. We were thrilled to have Zeiss with us sharing their new CP.3 lenses and metadata technology with the group. Sales Manager Snehal Patel delivered a enlightening presentation including a Q & A with VFX specialist, producer, director and Oscar winner Scott E. Anderson. We were blown away by the technology they showed where they removed lens distortion data, did the VFX work and then reintroduced that same data to the final image. This Zeiss technology which is open sourced will revolutionize cinematography for VFX and much more! After our spooky handmade treats we resumed with a fast, furious and funny presentation from LAPPG’s good friend Kevin Good! With the perfect mix of information and entertainment, Kevin took us through 30 workflow tips and cheats in 30 minutes! There was something for everyone in this presentation, plus we got to find out Kevin makes a mean double caramel macchiato!

Straight from a well-received presentation at Adobe MAX in Las Vegas, we are lucky to have Maxim Jago join us to share this exciting presentation with our group!

In this session, Maxim will present a series of profoundly simple principles that the best editors are guided by, from approaches to organization to interpersonal skills.

As time allows, he will also share an overview of media formats: SD 2D to full volumetric video – what does it all mean? An overview of new production approaches and delivery mediums. In his experience, creatives sometimes struggle to get clear concise information about new visual mediums, and the opportunities and challenges they represent. In this overview, he’ll fill in some blanks.
