AUGUST 2012 - HEY IT'S AN INVITE & A NEWSLETTER!
First up - thanks to everyone who came out on August 21 for our most recent meeting.
You guys know that it was awesome, and a bunch of you asked why we don't record the presentations. If you were at August's meeting you know why. It's all about being in a loose, relaxed, personal environment. It's allowing our speakers to talk about their craft or products without worrying about being on camera. Andrew Kramer has presented software before it's ready to be revealed, producers have talked about water disasters, and software companies can give you the inside scoop before anyone else.
THE NEWS FROM THE MEETING -
We're in the planning stages for a special meeting at DV EXPO for September's meetup. Get your free passes thru the link at the top. (code = DMALA12)
In case you didn't get them all down, here are some good resources to check out. If you have some of your own to add, you can do that on our Facebook page.

When & Where
Digital Media Artists \ Los Angeles
Digital Media Artists / Los Angeles (DMA/LA) is an association for professionals creating imagery for video, film, and other media using desktop tools. MGLA was formed in August 1997 through the merger of several previously-existing groups. DMA/LA is an extention of that - continuing in 2008. DMA/LA's area of discussions are not restricted to a specific hardware or software solution, understanding that an artist often has to employ 2D, 3D, and other digital tools to realize their vision - and that artistic inspiration can be universal.
