Thank you all so much for the kind emails asking about Inspire 07. From my perspective, it went really well, especially for our first time out. The turnout was strong, the energy level was high and the presenters were great. I learned a lot from the whole thing, and I can’t wait to put some of that new knowledge to use… somehow.
A huge team of people was involved in the creation of the event; I was only one small part of it. Massive thanks should be heaped upon the entire Savannah campus Broadcast Design and Motion Graphics faculty for their hard work, the “Duff Army” of student volunteers that constantly reeled in the slack, and Jill Taffet, the conference chair and the head of the BCST department. Peter Weishar, Dean of the School for Film and Digital Media, should also be congratulated for his courage and guidance throughout the event.
Of course, epic odes featuring french horn solos should be written to celebrate the sponsors, but I wanted to make sure the invisible folks got some credit, too.
For those of you who attended, please share your thoughts in the comments. What did you like/disklike? What could have been better? What would you like to see next year?
