Meet the instructor:

Yan developed his skills in the digital arts through commercial work, teaching and consulting. He studied art at Brooklyn College and took to it so readily he was teaching graduate-level courses in 3D animation, compositing and non-linear editing while still an undergrad. Through an internship at Sony he learned to do high-end 3D animation and compositing on Avid, Flame and SoftImage systems. Shvalb learned DVD authoring at Crush, one of the first such facilities in the country; there, he worked on titles for Criterion, pioneer of the now-standard “added features” on DVDs.

Shvalb moved to Michigan to run a DVD authoring facility at General TV Network, then to Florida to serve as chief technical officer and CIO at Inflight Online, where he earned patents in air-to-ground communications technologies and “crazy stuff for in-flight entertainment”. In 2001 he returned to New York to start his own company, VizualFX. He currently offers custom training, contract video services, DVD authoring and consulting for workflow design and other production and post-production processes. You can also find him teaching at NYU or speaking events like NAB, Siggraph and Macworld.
