Agenda (subject to change and availability)

6:45- 7:30PM - Coup 53 - Walter Murch
Ten years in the making, COUP 53 tells the story of the 1953 the Anglo-American coup d'état that overthrew Iran's government of Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh and reinstalled the Shah. The CIA/MI6 covert action was called Operation Ajax. It was all about Iran’s oil and who gets to control and benefit from it. BP was at the heart of this story. Directed by Taghi Amirani, co-written and edited by Walter Murch, COUP 53 is a politically explosive and cinematically innovative documentary that lifts the lid on secrets buried for over sixty-six years.

About Walter Murch
Walter Murch has been editing sound in Hollywood since starting on Francis Ford Coppola's film The Rain People (1969). He edited sound on American Graffiti (1973) and The Godfather: Part II (1974), won his first Academy Award nomination for The Conversation (1974), won his first Oscar for Apocalypse Now (1979), and won an unprecedented double Oscar for Best Sound and Best Film Editing for his work on The English Patient (1996). Most recently he helped reconstruct Touch of Evil (1958) to Orson Welles' original notes, and edited The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999). Mr. Murch was, along with George Lucas and Francis Ford Coppola, a founding member of northern California cinema. Mr. Murch has directed --Return to Oz (1985) -- and longs to do so again, but as an editor and sound man he is one of the few universally acknowledged masters in his field. For his work on the film "Apocalypse Now (1979)", Walter coined the term "sound designer", and along with colleagues such as Ben Burtt, helped to elevate the art and impact of film sound to a new level


7:35PM - 8:05PM - The New Series of JVC "Connected Cam" cameras - Alicia Reed
JVC has a new series of "Connected Cam" cameras, the GY-HC500, GY-HC500SPC and GY-HC550 that will be shipping soon. These all have HD, 4K, HDR, IP-connectivity, and the ability to record 4:2:2 10-bit 60p ProRes right in the camera body onto an optional SSD card. These cameras also have a 20x optical zoom lens that offers up to a 40x zoom in HD mode and a shallow depth of field due to the camera’s 1” sensor. They can also be remotely controlled via IP as well as stream recorded clips or live video right from the camera. These are priced at $3900 - $5500 MSRP, so are a great choice for live event coverage, remote production, news, sports, music videos, documentaries, blogging, trainings, and more!

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.

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.
