MAX Recap Pt. 4 – Sneaks and MAX Bash

Sneaks!
Sneaks!

The evening of day 2 came to a head with the always anticipated MAX Sneaks session. This year Ben Forta was joined by Joseph Gordon Levitt (@hitRECordJoe). It was a nice change of pace to see the focus be solely on the tech and presentations, with limited (lacking) interaction between Levitt and Ben. An interesting observation is the presentations all ran short of the 5 minute limit with no one having to get “the hook”. I have to say I did miss the antics of last year’s with CHiPs Erik Estrada coming out to “arrest” the presenters who ran long.

That being said, the presentations for the most part were amazing. First up was special guest Russell Brown talking about the RB@MAX Kaiju Project and presenting the winning poster to the audience. He was a hit with his trusty steed “Rusty” hopping along to the music on stage.

Next were the presentations by Adobe engineers and the interns who developed some pretty cool ideas. My favorites were Project Para, Defog (hit of the show in my opinion), Gap Stop (crazy video editing) and Photoshop Design. Check out the videos below for the sneaks.

The evening ended with the ever popular MAX Bash featuring Kings of Leon as the headliners. It was great to catch up with old friends, make some new ones and enjoy the food, beverage and music. I wish I could say I closed the joint, but I had early morning commitments the next day so I had to behave. 🙂
