Founders, entrepreneurs and marketers struggle to stretch their limited production budgets because they must contend with a complex media ecosystem. 

This session will discuss the ins and outs of the production process and by knowing what drives the cost of producing your content assets, you are empowered to make better production decisions. 

This awareness also makes it easier for you to budget for all media and choose the appropriate agency and production partners according to the media channel necessary (production tiers). 

Ultimately, it is the partners you choose that are vital to your production efficiency, effectiveness, and ROI. Come learn to see how you can make the best decisions in hiring the “right” production agency in assisting your marketing and advertising campaigns.

The Sundown EXP @ Hopscotch: "Cyberpunk Edition" 
Creative Tech Workshop and Photo Meetup 

Grab your cameras to kickstart a creative future!  

A creative experience like no other,  picture this: 80s meets cyberpunk meets the innovators of the future.  This will be an evening of magic curated by the creative innovators of our city.  An experience for all, participants from SASW will team up with the SA Creatives to hang at Hopscotch and grab a custom drink made just for SASW (eg. "The Innovator") while they witness a live workshop with a professional photographer and model in the lobby. 

Soon after they will follow a selected few models and photographers that will be decked out in 80s cyberpunk outfits created by some of San Antonio's most talented designers, stylists, and MUA. They will be following a narrative throughout Hopscotch.  Other photographers and models are welcomed to explore and create art together throughout the space. 

Our hopes and goals are that the participants from the day's events that are made up of the city's innovators, founders, and dreamers will join in and mix with the SA Creatives to create a beautiful mix of our city's innovators.  We want everyone to leave inspired and filled with a stomach full of creative butterflies ready to disrupt this city with new and fresh ideas!  So who's with me? Who is ready to see what happens when technology meets creativity after "Sundown".

Sponsored by Hopscotch, SA Creatives, and The Down Market
