After-effects Emmy winner to speak to Idaho Falls Advertising Federation

Mikey Borup, whose after-effects work has won national acclaim, will speak Feb. 19 to the Idaho Falls Advertising Federation.
Last week we reported YouTube guru Bart Miller would be speaking Feb. 19 to the Idaho Falls Advertising Federation at its monthly “Lunch and Learn.” Scheduling conflicts have since forced them to find a replacement, but this is far from bad, as Emmy-winner Mikey Borup, an after-effects and video production professional from Rexburg, will be doing the presentation.

Borup says it’s not just about creating a great video, but also about creating the right video. He is an expert YouTuber, and has helped several channels build thousands of subscribers. His personal channel has nearly 70,000 subscribers and 3 million views.

He is also a founder of www.cinemaspice.net, a new site that offers resources for video editors. In addition, he runs the largest after-effects community on Google+ and has a successful
YouTube channel dedicated to after-effects tutorials.

Borup is a contributor to Tuts+ and PremiumBeat and Udemy.com.

Lunch starts at 11:30 a.m. at Dixie’s Diner, 2150 Channing Way. Cost is $12 for members and $15 for non-members.

Here is just one of his many videos on YouTube. You could probably even justify watching it on your boss' dime.
