Agenda (subject to change)
6:45- 7:15PM – Stump the Gurus
Join Gurus Monica Daniel, Michael Kammes, Adam Bedford and Jesse Averna as they will attempt to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems concerning FCS and FCPX, Avid, Premiere Pro and anything else you can think of. If they can’t solve your problem or answer your question, then you go home with a problem, but you still got out of the house, so that’s not a bad thing.
7:25PM -7:45PM – The JVC GY-LS300 Digital Cinema Camera – Alicia Reed
“JVC will be showing our new GY-LS300CHU Digital Cinema Camera that has a Super35 sensor and can use film-lenses. The JVC GY-LS300 is unique because for a $3995 price, it can use a variety of lenses (MFT, Canon EF, Nikon, PL, etc.), and can record the native view of the lens using our JVC Variable Scan Mapping technology. It has an easy-to-use and easy-to-set-up form factor that has built in audio and built in recording. It can record in HD or 4K, and it can also stream live SD or HD video to a decoder, switcher, or directly to a website using RTMP. Here is a link to more information about the JVC GY-LS300 camera: http://pro.jvc.com/prof/attributes/features.jsp?model_id=MDL102318.

7:50PM – 8:10PM – “Beauty Box Video” – Jim Tierney
From Jim: I’ll be showing off Beauty Box Video 4.0 which adds real time rendering to the best skin retouching plugin available. So I’ll be showing off some examples of fast rendering, great looking skin smoothing. I’ll be using both Beauty Box’s automatic mask and a feature in Premiere Pro that uses Premiere’s built in masks to do spot retouching on cheeks and forehead. We’ve also got some new video plugins coming out, so I’ll be doing a sneak peak of those as well.

8:10PM – 8:35PM – Art of the Title: Fun Title in the Timeline – John Putch

About John Putch
John Putch is often referred to as an anti Hollywood filmmaker.

Prior to becoming a filmmaker, John was an accomplished actor who started in the theater, then enjoyed a successful TV and film career before making the switch to directing.
8:35PM – 9:00PM – Break
This is your chance to ask questions. No questions? Then talk to each other. The break is a chance to hang out and meet and greet and get your problems solved and who knows, get a job.
