Most of the teachers were amazing - Kyle Hamrick, Evan Abrams, and Eran Stern showed me basics and advanced techniques that really improved my skills. Some of the teachers were running advanced classes as if we had never used a computer before, which was a bit frustrating.
Overall, I'm very pleased that I attended, and look forward to possibly taking more classes at NAB in the future.

Great to have a gathering of all walks of career backgrounds and meet new people. Particularly fun to see a set-up of a live show. Sitting through 3-hours+ of non-stop lectures was a little grueling because of the lots of content to absorb. However, The presenters were excellent speakers, industry experts I trusted, and the devices were fun to try out.

FMC did a great job organizing After Effects World in Seattle this year, but some of the event's details fell short. The guests and speakers were genuinely good, all folks that I wanted to see and talk to - especially the AE dev team. But the facilities and hotel services seemed like they were a little disorganized. Maybe it's just their first rodeo, so to speak? Keep trying, FMC! And next time, please offer more descriptions of the sessions in addition to the titles.

Attended the training @NAB in 2019.... I wish there could be a selection between the cost of the weekend courses and the one hour courses to get in-depth, but not in debt!!

The class I took at FMC was well-taught, detailed, and enjoyable.
The instructor had worked in the industry, so I was able to receive relevant advice and instruction. Since I was the only student, I got one-on-one training with the instructor of the software throughout the whole week.
One major thing that I enjoyed was that the class was basically intense learning throughout the week instead of drawn out lessons over a period of 16 weeks, like one would find in college.
My one criticism is that I wished there was more guidance or study materials when it came to studying for the software certification exam. I felt overwhelmed when I studied for the exam because I didn't know, really, where to start or what to focus on. But aside from that, FMC was really great.
Also, the other people working at FMC were really nice and really helpful, too.
When I can, I'll take a class there again.

I thought that the classes were relevant and dealt with current topics. Myself and my team all walked away with new knowledge, skills and techniques that changed our workflow and made us better.

FMC does a great job of helping you get the basics down to be able to grow your understanding. I have attended a couple of their training sessions and have always walked away with a better understanding of the tools they were teaching.

The class was advertised as introduction to Adobe After Effects, but actually taught as advanced, since most attendees were advanced users. Not much better help for beginners!

This last year at NAB 2019, there were to many training sessions that were the same as NAB 2018. The rooms are always way to cold. It would really be nice if there were handouts for all the classes rather than having each attendee take photos of the screen or try and take notes will the speaker is speaking.

Great classes- Adobe Connect is an issue.
Because I am behind the firewall of a major retailer, Adobe Connect does not work.
I need to connect to the internet a different way that involves multiple hoops.
I know it is an Adobe tie-in but a YouTube class would be better.

FMC was a very informative experience when learning Macbook Mojave 10.14 essentials training as well as writing the exam for this course.
We have learned a lot more than what our careers require which helps to expand our knowledge.
Recommend this course to anyone wanting to be certified.

FMC has provided me with some top-notch training. I have taken courses that have challenged me and some that have only provided reinforcement of skills I already feel comfortable with. But, in either case, I have always taken away something new.

I have had great experiences every time I go to a Future Media Conference. The instructors are knowledgeable and helpful.

Rich array of content and well organized with solid presenters. I would imagine it being difficult to put something together like this to serve a range of skills, but in my opinion, they did it well. I got a lot out of this. Very worthwhile.

NAB 2019 @ Las Vegas
Good sharing of knowledge. The presentation could be organized and structured better. There were at times lack of space with people still trying to fit in. Video and Audio experience was not impressive either for an event that deals with Video and Audio. The presenters need to hire professional technical writers to help script the presentation as topics were going all over the place at times. Actual participants were helping out and correcting as well.
The only presenters that were worth watching and taking the time to learn from are those they hired from people already contributing at Lynda.com. Other than that the others were just freestyling the presentation.
People were taking photos of the poorly lit screen. Each session needs to have an emailed PDF handout right off the bat. No exception. This would allow everyone to concentrate listening to the session than trying to take notes from unstructured presentations.
Did I mention Video and Audio presentation quality was not optimal for a Video and Audio show? Until this has been addressed, I don't think I will be attending any more Las Vegas conferences unless it was free at this point. Not worth my over USD$1K investment for the conference alone not to mention additional hotel, airplane, and food expenses during the 7 days I was there.

Enjoyed the conference I attended in LA. Met lots of people. I wanted to spend more time with Marcelo but maybe will get a chance later. But enjoyed exploring new technologies while I was there

This was my first time attending and I had a great time. I plan on going to more!
A couple of the sessions were great. Some were good and some ok
I would love to see more design orientated ones in which the presenter has a kick a*s, highly detailed and complex project and goes thru the process on how it was created, all the way back into the conceptualization part.
The Keynote with Martin Romances was great. I would have loved to hear him talk more in detail about his workflow and thought process but time is always a limiting factor.
Also I would like to get more advanced sessions with After Effects. More of the workflow that was presented rested on a beginner level. I would like to get some greater insight on After Effects and its capabilities.
Breaking into groups during one of the larger sessions was fun and we had a chance to get with the engineers on a more one on one basis. A couple negatives would be that a discussion could easily be monopolized by one person asking questions. And also since we were in one large auditorium, I had to deal with crowd noise from the other groups so it was a little difficult to hear at times.
I'm looking forward to the next one. Hopefully it'll be in another town as fun as Seattle. Just try to avoid Denver...because that's where I live and I'd rather travel:)
