NAB 2012 has been full of incredible announcements and yet more upheaval and change. Autodesk dropped a huge bombshell with the radically redesigned Smoke 2013. Avid brought Symphony down to $999 and of course Adobe rolled out their new Creative Suite 6. Apple laid out a road path to the future for Final Cut Pro X.
Beyond that, NAB 2012 had a lot to soak in from all aspects of Post Production.
Your Atlanta Cutters were at the show and we thought we'd take an opportunity to simply spend a night chatting about what we all saw at the show, trends that are emerging (Cloud anyone?) and where we see the industry moving. This will truly be an Editor's Lounge event where we'll simply talk shop and compare notes in a much more intimate setting with a smaller crowd than our usual month get togethers.
The Editor's Lounge will take place up in Gwinnett County at Biscardi Creative Media in Buford. We will be starting the networking one hour later than normal at 7pm to allow more time for y'all to get up this way and the meeting itself will run straight from 8 to 10pm.
Your hosts for the evening will be Dan, Kris, Walter and Clay. Light catering as usual will be provided and you're welcome to check out Walter's facility before the meeting.
Seating is very limited so register early!
Limited parking is available in the parking lot but there is plenty of parking in the cul-de-sac and along the road.
When & Where
Hey Y’all and welcome to the new Post Production User Group for Atlanta and of course all of the surrounding areas. Too many times these User Groups are application centric and that seems to leave too many folks out. After all in today’s world, an Editor is not just an Editor. Heck a Graphic Artist, a Sound Designer, a Web Designer is not just that any longer. Because the tools have gotten so much more accessible all of us are multi-tasking to do whatever it takes to get the job done for the client. So it’s a rarity today to find any Post Production artist who just wears one hat.
In that spirit, we present Atlanta Cutters. Sure we’re gonna spend a lot of time talking about the tools we all use, but moreso, we want to discuss the craft of what we do and how we all interact. So while you’re going to see a lot of product demonstrations, you’re also going to hear from folks on the hows and whys of what they do. We hope the combination of tools and stories will inspire and motivate all of us to do what we do better. We hope the group fosters more collaboration by introducing new tools, workflows and even local artists to each other.
Most of all, we hope this group is something you look forward to once a month as a fun place to go. Twitter, Facebook and web forums are great for all of us to connect and help each other, but let’s put the voice and face together with the avatar.
