One of top four most popular interviews from the first half of 2013, Philip Hodgetts, CEO of Intelligent Assistance, shares his views on the future of Final Cut Pro X. Interviews were selected based upon the number of people listening to them in the Interview Archives section of the Buzz website.

Fujifilm was another company at the Creative Storage Conference. They were showing a cloud-based archiving project that they recently introduced for filmmakers and media professionals. In this interview, Anthony Juliano explains their new system and how it can benefit filmmakers.

Ross Shain, Chief Marketing Officer, Imagineer Systems

This is another of our Top Four interviews from 2013. Mocha is a planar tracking system, which is widely regarded as the best in the industry. Except, ah, just what IS a planar tracking system; and who should consider using it? Ross Shain, Chief Marketing Officer for Imagineer Systems explains.

Sam Bogoch, CEO, Axle Video

This is another of our Top 4 interviews from 2013. Mention the phrase “Media Asset Management System,” and most people will run screaming from the room. Which is fine, until you can’t find that one file you need to finish your project. Axle has developed a “radically simple” media management system that runs on a Mac Mini, as Sam Bogoch, CEO of Axle Video, explains.
