The night will feature the official debut of the crowd-funded documentary on Final Cut Pro X called, Off the Tracks. Director Brad Olsen will be in attendance to introduce the film and take questions after. Says Brad, “This documentary features exclusive interviews with the creative professionals who use the software and the developers who created it. Why did Apple make Final Cut Pro X? With misinformation running amok, Off The Tracks aims to clear the air once and for all.”
Also on the evening’s agenda will be a trip down memory lane with FCP Creator Randy Ubillos and lacpug head Michael Horton. “We intend to take a trip back to the beginning,” says Horton. “Back to the early years of the Los Angeles Final Cut Pro User Group and the Digital Revolution. Back to the beginnings of Final Cut Pro, from its origins at Macromedia all the way until Final Cut Pro X. There will be never before seen footage, and never before heard stories.”
Scheduled to be in the audience and perhaps on stage, (subject to availability) will be members of the original FCP team, Michael Wohl, Tim Serda and Paul Saccone. Also in the audience will be Ramy Katrib of DigitalFilm Tree and Dan Fort. “Many other invites to the ‘superstars’ of the Digital Revolution and the FCP have been sent out,” says Horton.
The night will also include food and drinks, time for questions and the always fun “World Famous Raffle.”
Tickets are on sale now on the lacpug web site for only $10.00 each plus ticket fee.
“This is going to be a wonderful celebration and a very special night,” says Michael Horton, founder and current head of the group. “Anyone considering being a part of this event should get their tickets soon.”
