There are so many topics we’ve covered in the past about setting up your own business, how to get new clients, what does individual insurance mean, but this month – let’s talk about what it means to work solo vs. working in an independent team. How do you keep in touch with your team to work collaboratively on video? Wipster’s HQ is in New Zealand, but with their help, it doesn’t matter where you (or your team) is to work collaboratively on any Work In Progress. Rollo Wenlock is an entrepreneur and filmmaker interested in how we make better films to connect people. Wipster was created by filmmakers, creative media artists and a bunch of people who love technology, but hate tedium, process and drudgery. And that’s why they created Wipster; a beautiful, intuitive digital media review and approval platform designed for content creators, media teams, and anyone creating short-form video projects.

HEY DON’T DO THAT. PHYSICAL HAZARDS OF DESIGNING
Plus, hazards of the digital designer: KtIsabelle will present a few real life issues you may not be aware of that could REALLY hurt you. (bring your yoga pants) There are many things that you’ll need to take care of when you’re designing on your own, including taking care of yourself. Kt will talk about some things you’ll want to consider even though you may be in the “that’ll never happen to me” camp. Some simple steps to help you design better, longer, more safely.
This month, we’ll have food and our END OF YEAR PRIZES!
