Director of Video Production Ernest Hernandez III and Senior Producer James Borrego from the UTSA Office of Information Technology represented the university during the 2017 San Antonio Entrepreneurship Week (SAEW). The conference took place from November 13-17 and was hosted at 11 different locations within the city of San Antonio.

SAEW is a five-day showcase that highlights the entrepreneurs and businesses that are making a difference in the San Antonio Community. Throughout the week, over 80 speakers from various organizations collaborate on innovative ideas, existing partnerships, deal flows, and much more.

Hernandez served as a speaker on November 16 at the San Antonio College location for the “Taking the Risk in San Antonio: Video Writing, Pre-Production, and Production” session.  During the sitting, Hernandez and five other speakers collaborated on different routines and the technology involved in digital editing, live streaming, and broadcasting within video production.

"It was great to see UTSA included in the conversation, said Hernandez. I can imagine the UTSA Downtown campus being a major influencer for this conference next year."

In addition, Hernandez also presented during the “Digital Workstations and Watch Instantly Platforms: Video for Television and Online Post-Production and Distribution” session.  Throughout the session, the speakers discussed evolving strategies when using video editing software and exporting it with technology hardware such as social media, Netflix, or websites.

Borrego also served as a speaker at the San Antonio College location on November 16. During the “The Write and Capture Storytelling Mission: Film and Episodic Treatments, Location, and Production” session. Borrego collaborated with four other speakers about the different design procedures, software, and hardware technology involved in video production.

Anytime you can share with colleagues outside of the educational environment, in a panel discussion, the many different approaches and processes that facilitate the creation of a product such as a video, it is very satisfying, said Borrego. “We also gain a new understanding of how other producers are going about creating and can discern whether our approaches are effective or get new ideas of how to approach a project.
