Our mission is to provide an ongoing forum for continuing education and skills enhancement in all phases of professional video production.
Our own Ken & Terri Kurita will premiere the trailer for their new documentary, Breaking Free. They have been working on this project for five years! Last year, Terri spoke about what it took to get four years into it. Now, it's finished -- and finishing a documentary is an incredibly difficult task -- a task started by many, but achieved by few. Terri will answer questions about the process of gaining access to interviews & information, shooting, editing, using stock & original music, collaborating with production specialists and fundraising. This documentary began as a few interviews on YouTube and evolved into so much more. Also, to piggyback on last-month's meeting, I'd like you to try and make a 1-2 minute video with your mobile device -- shooting & editing. You might not have beautiful shots of Paris, like Bill L'Herault showed; but try to put something together -- all with your mobile device.
At Our Last Meeting
Nice turnout at the April meeting! Great to see everyone!The president of JVC Advanced Media, Masatoshi "Max" Inui flew in from Chicago, just to talk to our group. He spoke to us about optical discs & new standards for CDs, DVDs & Blu-Rays. There have been many recent advancements in the science of burning long-lasting discs. Max gave great information; but I know that when I need discs duplicated, I like to call our own Mike Madden to get the job done right -- on time -- and for less money than I could do it myself.
