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.
