Tim @ timmccartney_: Whenever, Wherever.

Tim is a freelance director, editor and photographer based in Melbourne, Australia. Over the past 10 years he’s travelled both interstate and internationally for tourism, music video and film projects. In recent years Tim has been using drones to add another perspective to his creative video style.

In his presentation, Tim will be discussing how he creates aerial video content for Envato by filming with intention from using thoughtful aerial movements, framing and contextualising each shot. He’ll also discuss his work process, from keeping his drone on him at all times, all the way through to submitting to Envato and how this job helps provide him with extra monthly income.

Antonio @ TortoiseTree: How to use Audio and Writing to effectively tell story in a Video Game.

Antonio is the Creative Director for Sapphire Dragon Productions, a video game development studio based in Melbourne, Australia. Previously, he was a composer and producer writing music for commercials featured around the world for global brands like IKEA, Sotheby’s, Jumex and Renaissance Hotel Marriot. Those jobs were all achieved through his Author portfolio on AudioJungle, where he’s been an author for 7 years.

In his presentation, Antonio will discuss how to create audio (music and SFX) to successfully compliment the story you want to tell in video games. He’ll be demonstrating how to compose musical cues and background songs, plus techniques for making and mixing effective SFX sounds. In addition, Antonio will be talking about writing plot for video games and how to effectively convey a story in this format.

These activities will explore marketplace and industry trends, business development, author stories and more!

Envato Worldwide will be an experience that will motivate, inspire and connect authors and creatives around the world.

We would love to see you there!
