Soyka had no idea the live events industry even existed until he found himself
working in it.
began his career as an in-house video editor and production jack-of-all-trades
for Westchester County's multimedia department. He went freelance in 2002,
initially focusing on video production. After working on a video-heavy
corporate presentation, he switched gears, focusing on graphics and animation
for live corporate events. Walter quickly adapted his skill set to his new
niche, and adopted new presentation tools like Dataton Watchout and Apple
Keynote as they were released.
Walter's company, Keen Live (http://www.keenlive.com), specializes in motion graphics, widescreen/multi-screen display, and
presentation design. Walter's interdisciplinary approach—blending design and
engineering—has proven invaluable in his live events work, where each project
brings new creative and technical challenges.
he travels extensively for work and many of his Creative COW posts come from
parts unknown, Walter lives in his original hometown. He's proud to have
married his high school sweetheart, and together they are raising a family.
You can find Walter Soyka hosting in Creative COW's Live Events & Streaming, Apple Final Cut Pro Legacy, Creative Community Conversations (was FCPX Debates), and Apple Final Cut Pro X Forums.
