***1. NEXT LACPUG MEETING



and

lacpug Meets are once again sponsored by Blackmagic Design
and DigitalFilm Tree and we are grateful.


Paul Hirsch & AB 5.

Happy New Year.

Join us Wednesday, January 22 for the first meet of 2020.

Excited to announce that Academy Award winning editor Paul Hirsch
will be one of our guests on Wednesday, January 22, 2020. Paul has collaborated with directors like Brian De Palma, George LucasGeorge
A. Romero
, Herbert Ross and many others. He has edited over forty
films, some of which include: Carrie, Star Wars: Episode IV - A New
Hope
, Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, Footloose,
Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Ray and Mission: Impossible. Paul recently
wrote and just published a book detailing his over fifty year career,
"A long time ago in a cutting room far, far away."

Also, AB 5 is now California law and there seems to be a lot of confusion,
surrounding it. AB 5 will require businesses to use something called an
“ABC” test to figure out if their workers are employees or independent
contractors. How will this affect those of us in the entertainment industry?
Entertainment lawyer Jonathan Handel will join us to explain what exactly
is AB 5, and what effects it might have on you.

Plus World Famous Raffle and Stump The Gurus.

***5. SPONSOR LACPUG


Lacpug needs another Meeting Sponsor. Desperately. We may not be able
to finish out the year if I can't find someone. Expenses have risen
significantly over the past few months due to a myriad of reasons and I
need another sponsor to cover these new expenses. Currently Blackmagic
Design and DigitalFilm Tree generously cover our meetings. If you know
of a company who might like to be part of this community, let me know.
I’m searching hard, but I can use your help. Write me.


See you Nov 20 at the next lacpug Meet.

Peace- and bless you Ralph, Charles, Doug, Mik, Pete, Bruce and Norm.

Michael Horton "HeadCutter"
