DaVinci Resolve 16 & The Art of the Commercial
Join us Wednesday, August 28 for another lacpug Meet.
Television commercials have changed. No longer are they confined to 30 or 60 seconds. With TV subscriptions in decline, the traditional TV commercial has now gone online. And that has changed everything.
We welcome editor Lauren Dellara from Angus Wall's Rock Paper Scissors. Lauren has edited many commercials for such companies as Nike, North Face, Calvin Klein and more. Lauren will discuss what goes into creating an effective ad and show a few examples of her work.
We also welcome editor Zoe Mougin who also works out of RPS. Zoe has edited commercials for companies such as Facebook, HP, Google Pixel 2, Honda, Adidas and many more.
Also Paul Saccone returns to lacpug to show off the just announced Resolve 16.1 including the much maligned "Boring Detector." Paul also promises to show off "things you might not know Resolve 16 can do." Bring your questions.
Plus Stump the Gurus and World Famous Raffle.
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. Digital projection made possible through the generous sponsorship of Adobe Systems, DVCreators, DigitalFilm Tree, OWC, VES and members like you. lacpug meetings are presented in association with the Barnsdall Gallery Theater, a facility of the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.
Agenda (subject to change and availability)
6:45- 7:15PM - Stump the Gurus
Join Gurus Steve Kanter, Patrick Southern, Paul Saccone and Michael Kammes as they will attempt to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems concerning Resolve 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.
7:20PM - 8:20PM - DaVinci Resolve 16.1 & What you may not Know about Resolve 16 - Paul Saccone
Paul returns to lacpug to show off the just announced Resolve 16.1 including the much maligned "Boring Detector." Paul also promises to show off "things you might not know Resolve 16 can do."

Metro Red Line
Yes, Los Angeles has a subway and if possible you ought to use it. Riders are dropped of at Sunset and Vermont and then it is a walk of several blocks and uphill to get to the Theatre. The Park has a gated stairway ending at Barnsdall Ave, just behind the strip mall. It's the only access point from this side, but it is often locked. There is long, tree-shaded stairway leading from Hollywood Blvd to the Gallery Theatre and this area is sometimes shared with a homeless population. The best route for people who use mobility devices is the sidewalk along the Barnsdall Park road access. More info on the Red Line can be found here.
PARKING: Parking is FREE. There is ample parking on top of hill near the Art Park. Parking extends around the perimeter of the Park. NOTE: Please park your car diagonally even though the spaces are not marked that way. If there are no spaces to park at top, then use parking lot at bottom of hill near Hollywood Blvd. Click HERE to download a PDF(300K) of the grounds that points out the parking areas and includes other helpful hints.
