Agenda (subject to change)

6:45- 7:15PM - Stump the Gurus
Join FCS Gurus Andrew BalisMisha Tenenbaum 
and Larry Jordan as they will attempt to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems concerning FCS. 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.

7:20PM - 7:30PM - Announcements
This is a chance to get up and ask for a job, offer job opportunities, announce your film or service, or tell a bad joke. lafcpug will also have a few announcements on its future.

7:30PM - 7:55PM - “If I’m So Good at What I Do, Why Does Business Suck? - Larry Jordan.
You’re an ACE at Final Cut Pro, run circles around others with your mad Photoshop and After Effects skills, and blow people away with your top notch content creation abilities. Conversely, you find yourself constantly fighting an uphill battle to find new clients, better gigs and new ways to generate income. You’re not alone. The digital revolution has delivered a bounty of amazing and powerful new tools, but it also has flooded the market with thousands of new competitors, many willing to work for next to nothing to get their foot in the door.

A pioneer in creating motion pictures, television, web video and internet properties, Lawrence Jordan,
(or to the lafcpug crowd the “other” Larry Jordan), has a unique perspective and a wealth of knowledge on the challenges facing creative freelancers in the new economy. In this presentation, Jordan will clue you in on some of the secrets, tools and techniques available to you right now, which have the power to set you apart from the the rest of the pack.

From being one of the first editors to cut a long-form project on the Avid Media Composer, to consulting the team at Apple on Final Cut Pro, to building and selling 2-pop.com,
one of the first great communities centered around the desktop video revolution, Larry delivers a talk that will educate, inform and hopefully inspire you to take your career as a freelance creative professional to the next level.

8:00PM - 8:30PM -"The Rough Cut; Deciphering the Director's Intentions." - Misha Tenenbaum.
Back from film production in Bulgaria, editor Misha Tenenbaum will present, "The Rough Cut: How to Interpret the Director's Intentions." He'll discuss how to understand the coverage using scenes from his latest film,"Sofia."

8:20PM - 8:50PM - Break
In the lobby will be many FCS Gurus. This is your chance to ask questions. No questions? G-Technology will be in the lobby showing off their storage solutions. Maxon will also be in the lobby showing off Cinema 4D. The break is a chance to hang out and meet and greet and get your problems solved and who knows, get a job. You never know who you are going to meet at lafcpug.Snacks and Beer and Wine will be on sale in the lobby. Proceeds go to the Gallery Theater.

9:00PM - 9:45PM - "Editing a Sequence in Quantum of Solace" - Matt Chesse.
We welcome Academy Award nominated editor Matt Chesse to lafcpug. Matt has edited such films as Monsters Ball, Finding Neverland, Quantum of Solace as well as many others and just wrapped “Warrior” starring Tom Hardy.
