PHOTOS FROM LAST MONTH's MEET ARE UP!
If you're in 'em, light 'em up. If you're not... well, sorry you missed it, but this month is another chance to hang with some mograph rockers. 2D, 3D, 4D. Bring it.
It's BEHANCE CRIT NIGHT. Start the night out right, and early, with some of the industry's lead creatives telling you what it takes to make your portfolio shine in the sun.
Additionally, there are TWO product demos this evening, so get ready to find out about better solutions to your production pipeline. Work smarter.
ALEX DOW / ZAXWERKS
Alex Dow is the Director of Marketing at Zaxwerks and has been with the company for 3 years. His depth of knowledge and infectious attitude has helped people all over the world realize how easy 3D can be right inside of After Effects with Zaxwerks products.
Yes. I wrote "Alex Dow". It's Alex Dow! Alex will showcase some of the features in the new software from Zaxwerks. Do you have questions for Mr. Zax Dow too? Bring 'em.
He'll be there too - but it's Alex on stage for this one!
TODD PRIVES / ZYNC
Face it. We all have to render sometimes... okay maybe not you video games people, or traditional fine artists. But for the high end VFX set that make up the majority of you, we need to render.
Zync provides the pipeline tool for serious production schedules, including support for Maya, Nuke, VRay and Mental Ray.
EJ HAZZENFRATZ & DONOVAN KEITH
Time to ratchet it down and get serious. If you're learning C4D online, you're probably already listening to these guys. EJ (@eyedesyn) and Donovan (@dskeith) are guided the veteran C4D hand of Rob Garrott (@bendingpixels).... Rob also happened to be the winner at last month's pub drawing for #WOLFBABY
We're also holding a raffle drawing ($5) for one of our members' kids soccer club. Help send some kids on a trip, win a WACOM INTUOS 5 MEDIUM tablet for yourself. $5 cash. Finally! A contest we can enter! :P
See you on the 19th.
Tweet me if you want pizza - and WHAT KIND!?!? (nobody likes pepperoni anymore?)

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.
