There’s a golden rule in content creation: always tell a good story. Nobody practices that rule quite like Larry Lancit, President and Owner of Lancit Digital Media. In his Emmy-winning career in video production, Lancit has prioritized storytelling above all else. This is clear in his long-running educational program Reading Rainbow, which inspired countless children with books, music, and other media for over 20 years. Reading Rainbow was the first of many children’s programs produced by Larry and Cecily Lancit, and is widely regarded as one of the best shows of the genre.

Say goodbye to projects as you know them. Premiere Pro is entering a new, more feature-friendly era of collaboration. At this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Adobe announced a new update coming soon (edit: it’s now available!) to Premiere Pro. And it’s sure to change the way teams use Premiere on large, multi-user projects like episodic television and feature films. It’s called “Productions,” and it’s not-so-much a new feature as it is a reimagining of the way a Premiere “project” is structured. Productions are a new way to manage projects, share assets, and keep everything organized when you’re collaborating with a team. Adobe is taking aim at Hollywood workflows, which shouldn’t come as a surprise to people who have been following Adobe’s rapid expansion into the TV and Film market. A growing number of Hollywood editors and up-and-coming filmmakers alike have been embracing Premiere Pro for a number of years.
