Agenda (subject to change and availability)

6:45- 7:15PM - Stump the Gurus
Join Gurus Adam Bedford,
Misha Tennenbaum, Michael Kammes and Christine Steele 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.

7:20PM - 7:30PM - Announcements
This is your time, assuming we have time. New to LA? Say Hello. Got a movie you want people to see? Tell us about it. Looking for a job? Tell us. Offering a job? Tell us.

7:30PM - 8:00PM - Finding (and Cutting) A Great Short Film - Misha Tennenbaum
As CEO of EditStock — an online service that provides uncut footage for people to practice editing with — Misha Tenenbaum spends most of his time doing two things: Finding new films for EditStock’s library and giving users feedback on their cuts. In this presentation, Misha shares what he’s learned through these two vital processes — including how bad films may have more to teach us than good ones do.

8:25- 8:55PM - Break
This is the most important part of the show. It's networking time. This is a great opportunity to not only ask questions and get problems solved, but to meet people that just migh
t change your life. Keycode Media will be in the lobby showing off fully loaded PCs and talking workflow. lacpug sponsor CineXinsert will be in lobby showing off the stand-alone, file-to-file insert edit application for installation on your Mac. It's amazing! Also Edit5 Consoles. Get to the Gallery early for this one.

9:00PM - 9:40PM - Switching from Mac to PC - Terence Curren
