As CTO, partner, and director at Bandito Brothers, Jacob Rosenberg has helped create some of the most talked-about sports documentaries in recent memory. Each one shows a strong visual approach to the subject matter and an affinity for traditional filmmaking, by mixing adrenaline-pumping action with a higher purpose to entertain and inspire.
Whether they're outfitting active-duty Navy SEALs with cameras in "Act of Valor" or capturing the intense X Games action on the spot and editing it in real time, Jacob and his "brothers" apply the latest digital video technology innovations to serve the needs of great visual storytelling.
Jacob is the first to admit that the HDSLR revolution rocks because cameras have gotten so cheap that you can put them in harm's way to capture that crazy shot you've always wanted without busting the budget. Yet he's adamant about working diligently in post-production to add texture to the work and make it look filmic — and maybe even timeless.
AT Max 2013, Jacob shares his inspiring story of shaping the post-production reach of Bandito Brothers and achieving his own creative vision at the same time. From the celebrated documentaries "Dust to Glory" and "Waiting for Lightning" to the explosive "Act of Valor," Bandito Brothers' post-production department has always relied on Adobe technology as the binding infrastructure. Hear Jacob delve into the lineage of technical choices and creative problem solving that enabled Bandito Brothers' unique vision to be uninhibited and fully realized.
