Our Past Meetings

February 2016 The ubiquitous "talking head" shot is used for interviews, demonstrations, and presentations. As videographers, we tend to find a setup we like and stick with it, which is why this month we'll take a hands-on look at how to "Refresh Your Talking Head Shot"!
We also have a demonstration tentatively booked from stunt coordinator/videographer Spencer Peter on "Throwing a Cinematic Punch".
March 2016 Jim Wilson was a professional colorist who worked at the post house Tele Edit for many years. His experience in correcting film and video gives him great insight into the technical aspects of color correction and the use of scopes in a practical way. He currently works as a media producer at Eagle Brook Church. Jim is going to talk about how to approach color correction, how to read scopes and identify the different parts of an image (white points, black points, and skin tone). He'll also walk you through how to get an image to a neutral starting point and how to match shots from different cameras or with different settings.
Tim is going to to go over the Davinci Resolve interface and talk about how to put knowledge into practice.
