May 21, 2015 Meeting Sponsor Wipster
Wipster provides a beautiful and intuitive platform for reviewing, approving, and collaborating on video production. Used by thousands of video makers, Wipster streamlines the review workflow by securely sharing the editing process from rough cut to final cuts with your team or clients. We believe people will make better video faster if the client review process is transparent and takes place where it makes the most sense – right on top of the video.

Please bring your questions about Wipster to Rollo Wenlock at his table and following his presentation
Sabereh Kashi: Filmmaker
#HomeYetFaraway portrays Sabereh Kashi’s journeys through Iran, her reflections on her current life in the U.S., and the discovery of her family’s tradition of making complex geometric Persian-Islamic architecture as a metaphor for her modern multicultural identity.
Sabereh Kashi started her career by making short films and documentaries in Iran. She has worked as a video editor for several North American television and documentary production companies including MTV Networks, Sun TV, and Promises Films. She co-wrote and edited the ITVS documentary Our Summer in Tehran by Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Justine Shapiro.
She has been involved in editing and developing several documentaries, including the PBS- and BBC-broadcasted In the Name of Their Mothers.
Sabereh Kashi's work has appeared in the International Documentary Festival of Amsterdam, Hot Docs, Inside Out Film Festival, United Nations' Association Film Festival, Fajr International Film Festival, Cinema Verité Documentary Festival, and many international conferences and screenings. She obtained her BFA and MFA from the University of Tehran, a Post-Diploma in Advanced Television and Film from Sheridan Institute for Technology and Advanced Learning in Canada, and recently completed her PhD in Art Research at Tarbiat Modares University in Tehran. She lives and works in the Bay Area.

When & Where
SF Cutters: http://www.sfcutters.com
SF Cutters is the World's first Apple Final Cut Pro User Group forming in March of 2000. We have evolved to cover NLEs on the Mac, including but not limited to FCP, PremierePro, After Effects, Resolve, AVID, Lightworks, related plugins, VFX software and more. We also focus on the business, aesthetics, and life of the postproduction professional.
That's right, the concept of a DV User Group, complete with networking, screenings and tech info centered around Apple Final Cut Pro was born right here in San Francisco. Currently there are over 100 chapters of Creative Pro User Groups based upon our model. We are proud to be the founders of this exciting movement, dubbed in 1999 as "The DV Revolution". Viva!
SF Cutters meets regularly in San Francisco and the Bay Area Jan thru Nov, the schedule may vary from year to year.
