Walter Soyka had no idea the live events industry even existed until he found himself working in it.

Walter 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.

Today, 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.

Although 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 & Stage Events, Apple Final Cut Pro Legacy, Apple Final Cut Pro X Debates, Apple Final Cut Pro X, and VR (Virtual Reality)/360ยบ Video Forums.

Available for every major NLE, After Effects, and Resolve, you'll want to take a look at Walter's experience yourself.

Larger Than 4K: Larger Than Life!

Keen Live's Walter Soyka regularly works with files twice the size of EPIC's 4.5K - and how about a 120-foot video wall at 14,700 x 1200 - that's why he needs all the power he can get from his workstation.
