 lacpug meets are now made possible by

TUESDAY, Nov. 27, 2012

Join us for the last meet of 2012 as we welcome all of you to show your movies to all of us. Yes folks it will be...

“Show and Tell Night.”

I love Show and Tell Night!. If there is one meet where you are guaranteed to be inspired, it’s Show and Tell night. These short films shared by lacpug members in LA are not about “good” and “bad.” They are about what people are doing with what tools they have been given. It is about resourcefulness and getting your stories told no matter what the obstacles.

So get out of the house and come to lacpug, sit back and enjoy and bunch of shorts.

Plus we will have another round of Stump The Gurus and of course, World Famous Raffle.

Also, we will kick off the campaign to raise funds for the new projector at this meet. It is unlikely we will actually have the new projector at this meet as it is very expensive to rent. We need to buy it, not only for us, but for everyone to use including you.

See you soon for the last meet of 2012. It’s YOUR show.

NOTE: lacpug generally meets every 4th Wednesday of the Month
Meetings are open to public and ALL beginning through advanced Digital Story Tellers are welcome

Agenda (subject to change)

6:45- 7:10PM - Stump the Gurus
Join Gurus
Philip Hodgetts, Michael Kammes, and Monica Daniels 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.

7:15PM - 7:20PM - Welcome and Announcements
lafcpug sponsor AJA will give us the latest. Also if we have time, this is your time. Get up and tell us something about yourself. Ask for a job, offer a job. Whatever you want. Keep it brief. I also want to update everyone on the new projector and kick off the campaign to buy it.

This short film, Cowboys and Indians: The Great Diversion, was shot in the desert at the El Mirage Dry Lake Bed with the temperature in the 100s. It centers on two Mexican day laborers who are confronted by an angry protest against illegal immigration, which results in an enlightenment of grammar and ideas. The film has been featured on the websites CROOKS AND LIARS and FIREDOG LAKE.
Director/producer Danielle Agnello is very pleased to share this short with you.

8:10PM - 8:25PM - "Blood Oath" - David Kiang
Born out of wedlock, 15-year-old Lucienne and her native Chinese mother struggle to survive amidst the squalor in the slums of London in 1891. She is a half-breed, abandoned by her aristocratic father who succumbs to pressure from his wealthy family seeking to distance themselves from the disgraceful union when Terrence had embarked in the employ of his father’s trading business to China.
When her mother takes ill and dies, Lucienne must fend for herself. But there are dark figures that roam the night and she falls victim to their blood-lust.

8:30PM - 9:00PM - Break
In the lobby will be many FCP, Avid and Premiere Gurus. This is your chance to ask questions. No questions? Then talk to each other. Also in the lobby will be Tery Williams and Christina Oliver from lacpug Platinum Sponsor AJA. The break is a chance to hang out and meet and greet and get your problems solved and who knows, get a job. You never know who you are going to meet at lafcpug. Snacks and Beer and Wine will be on sale in the lobby. Proceeds go to the Gallery Theater.

This video is a brief excerpt from a much longer video documenting a trip made in a 65' powerboat from Southampton in England, through Scotland, to a circumnavigation of Iceland and return. The segment shows a dramatic anchorage on the Isle of Skye on the rugged west coast of Scotland. This kind of trip - lasting several months - calls for a solo effort. Other than a camera, the only equipment used was a bean-bag and every aspect of the production - with the exception of composing and playing the music - was done by myself. Camera was a Sony Z1U - after my Sony EX1R took a seawater bath delivered by a rogue wave.
