    Faces of Envato - Chicago Meetup 2010Chicagovideo
    I had great intentions to put together a thorough recap of our recent Envato Chicago Meetup, but alas... real life takes a lot of time. Instead of just forgetting the idea all together, I figured you'd at least like to see a short montage I put together during our group meetings. It was a treat to meet all the other editors, site managers, and Envato staff that could make the trip. I hope this video will be fun to watch just for putting faces to those responsible for your favorite sites.... enjoy! Read More…

    Meeting The Producer Of AvatarLandauthumb
    So last night I had the good fortune to go hear Jon Landau speak at a local college. I knew he was the producer of Avatar, but that was about it. Little did I know how many successful projects he's been a part of. He spoke on ethics in the film industry and how difficult it can be to make the right decision when money is on the line. I was quite impressed with both his ability and humility. I know this isn't a tutorial and it might be a little random, but I just figured I'd share a few points he made in his talk that stood out to me.Read More…

    It's Time To Be Heard...Silent
    Here at AEtuts+ we are trying to find tutorials that will be useful for those who check the site. Every once in a while we'll get a tutorial from a "non-English" speaking author who will send a video with captions and even though the end result is good, it's hard to tell how well they'll be received and we were hoping you could help. We've been holding on to a few of these tuts for a while and just wanted to find out if you wanted us to post them? They have captions, but no voice. I'll attach some of the previews... let us know what you think in the comments? Read More…
