POST BREAK: Creative Collaboration In A Virtual World

Thursday, May 28th at 4pm on Zoom

Marjorie Sacks, Software Quality Engineer, Adobe.


Marjorie Sacks began her career as an assistant editor at Rock Paper Scissors working with the world’s top directors, studios and advertisers. She has worked on everything from commercials, music videos, documentaries and short films. She joined Adobe 2 years ago as a Software Quality  Engineer working on the Premiere Pro Film and Integration team supporting top Film and TV productions in Los Angeles. Her extensive knowledge in post-production workflows and Premiere Pro helped pioneer the new collaborative workflow feature, Productions.


Bruce Long, CEO & CO-Founder, BeBop Technology

Bruce is a technologist, inventor and entrepreneur who has spent his entire career at the intersection of creativity and technology. His extensive experience includes launching and selling several successful startups and running large media and technology companies. Bruce has held global senior executive positions with many of Hollywood’s most prominent content creation, technology, postproduction and visual effects companies, including Deluxe, Technicolor, Ascent Media, and CBS. He founded and led many successful businesses at the convergence of digital solutions and content, including Muse VFX, New Antics, Next Element (acquired by Deluxe), Encore Video and Encore VFX (acquired by Ascent Media Group), and co-founded Cloud Takes with Daryll Strauss (acquired by Technicolor). He executive produced several motion pictures, television and online series, and is a venture partner of DFJ Frontier.

Marcie Jastrow, CEO Evercast

Translating Technical Tools for Creatives since ‘00

If there was a bit encapsulating Marcie Jastrow it would show Hollywood Colorists, Editors, Designers, Animators and the like with their heads slammed on their desk in pure confusion and frustration before a bright light appears in the doorway: it is their protector & liberator, Marcie. Except they wouldn’t be in Los Angeles, they’d be strewn throughout the world. And to be sure, Marcie wouldn’t be in a suit fresh from her corner office, she’d be sipping a tequila in her Mexican timeshare.

The futurist Marcie has made a career at the intersection of technology and content-- directing traffic that is. Involved in blockbusters such as Avatar, Hugo, Life of Pi, Birdman, Jungle Book, and Revenant, Marcie has been a pioneer since the analog-to-digital transformation, acting quickly to remain competitive and forging unprecedented partnerships with leaders such as Netflix and Amazon, Disney and Fox. The first to deliver content to consumers on-demand, Marcie’s touch is appreciated by creatives the world over, to fellow executives and stakeholders making decisions for the future of their projects-- and her dedication and dynamism makes it all the more fruitful. Indeed, Marcie is convinced that rich and interesting IP is all about remote collaboration with teams: less about having to be in the room and more about the diversity of the people brought together.

Marcie cemented her thought leadership in the delivery of managed technology and workflows in post-production at Paramount Pictures pre-2000. Modern VideoFilm then enjoyed a decade and millions in revenue, as Marcie established the feature film division. Marcie proceeded to earn the Executive Vice President of Sales position at Laser Pacific, which was acquired by Technicolor, promoting her quickly to Senior VP where she directed award-winning teams for the legendary entertainment services company. During Technicolor’s 2016 reinvention, they entrusted Marcie to lead the unprecedented Culver City Experience Center. She successfully guided the roadmap -- from the actual design to the artist in residency program -- housing strategic, cutting-edge content, platforms, and technology for virtual reality, augmented reality, and other immersive media applications. The result was Emmy Awards and new revenue streams from exploding each of the verticals.
