About the Speaker
Bruce Block‘s wide experience in film and video production has made him an expert in almost every phase of what is often called ‘the cinematic arts.’ An adjunct professor at USC’s school of Cinematic Arts for the past 30 years, Block teaches graduate level classes in visual structure. His book, “The Visual Story,” now in its second edition, is used the world over by students and professionals working in motion pictures, television, advertising and video game design.
