Agenda (subject to change) -

6:45- 7:15PM - Stump the Gurus
Join guest Gurus TBA as they will attempt to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems concerning Resolve, FCPX, Avid, Premiere Pro, getting a job and Networking. 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.

7:25PM- 8:10PM - DigitalFilm Tree Post Does Ted Lasso
DigitalFilm Tree (DFT) is approaching it's 25th year serving post and production teams around the globe. For Ted Lasso, DFT provided PreVis services in both Los Angeles and the U.K., transported Dailies from all across Europe (to the tune of 6TB per day in many cases) via their secure cloud infrastructure known as GeoPost, and of course handled VFX, Color, Online and Deliverables (including Promo!) for the show back here in L.A. Through a pandemic, two strikes and sanity challenging deadlines, we'll show you how we made that possible - and in some cases, even painless! Nancy Jundi, Avital Shalev and Thomas Galyon, just some of the artists from DFT, will join us.

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.
