Normally I probably wouldn’t post an announcement about the formation of a new user group since there are film/video user groups all over the country but this one is just down the road a couple of hours from my home turf so I wanted to point it out. Atlanta Cutters, Atlanta’s post-production group will have their first meeting on Wednesday, July 27. You can register here.
The event kicks off at 6:00 pm with the actual meeting scheduled from 7:00 – 10:00. It’ll be held at Turner Studios (1000 Techwood Drive NW, Atlanta) and includes a raffle after the meeting.
20 minute demonstrations of:
Final Cut Pro X
Adobe Premiere Pro CS 5.5
Avid Media Composer 5.5
Autodesk Smoke 2012
Panel Discussion: Editorial, Where Do We Go From Here?
Dan Daube: Turner Studios, Director Editorial-Entertainment
Nick Rashby: President, AJA Video Systems
Michael Harris: Key Account Manager, Avid
Marc Andr© Ferguson – Autodesk
Kris Merkel: Independent Artist, Atlanta Cutters Co-Founder
Walter Biscardi, Jr.: Atlanta Cutters Co-Founder, Moderator
(Note: Panel Subject to Change)
I like that second half discussion as that’ll be interesting in the wake of the Final Cut Pro X release. Interesting that we don’t see Apple on that list … not that they would have attended anyway. Raffle prizes include “Adobe Production Premium CS 5.5, Avid Media Composer 5.5, Flanders Scientific 1760W Monitor and more to be announced soon!”
The website says seating is limited so if you’re in the Atlanta area and want to attend the July 27 event get registered.
