CONFERENCE HIGHLIGHTS >Pushing the envelope in Web, special effects and video post-production Broadband Web sites are displacing costly online editing systems and CGI bureaus with computer-based video editing, post-shoot compositing, and companion Web sites. Hear how experts in each of these areas are building more compelling experiences for their audiences, what has worked, and what hasn't, in their pioneering efforts. >The digital agency It's true: Some of the most entertaining content in print, on television and on the Web are not the shows and editorial, but the ads. Learn how the New Wave of advertising agencies are exploiting new technologies to create some of the most compelling brand advertising. >Photo finish The digital arts are about more than just producing cool web sites and great video, they're also dramatically changing one of the oldest medias of visual expression: photography. Using tools like Photoshop, photographers are getting out of the lab and into the computer, creating bold new visions in 2D expression. > Web envy — creating brilliant Web sites on a budget In today's market, it's not enough to have a great idea and a copy of Dreamweaver to survive.
