6:45- 7:15PM - Stump The Gurus
Join Gurus Patrick Southern, Michael Kammes and the always popular TBA as they will attempt to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems concerning Resolve and FCPX, Avid, Premiere Pro and anything else you can think of. 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 - 7:50PM - LumaFusion for IOS - Terri Morgan
LumaFusion is an iOS editing app designed specifically for mobile filmmakers, journalists, YouTube Creators and anyone looking to create better video using mobile devices and gear.
