Marco Solorio OneRiver Media : SHOOTING FOR THE EDIT
Using Blackmagic Design Cameras in documentary feature filmmaking
Marco Solorio of OneRiver Media http://www.onerivermedia.com/ takes us behind-the-scenes on the production of the two-hour BMW documentary feature film, “10/10ths” to show how he “shot for the edit” using production examples with comparison samples of the final cut of the film.
Topics of discussion will include (1) production days that required minimum to no crews, (2) maintaining efficient footage acquisition for low shooting ratios, (3) staying true to the story for the edit, and (4) still having options in the edit, (5) including virtual multi-cam edits. We'll even see the final result of these techniques with a preview from a portion of the film.

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.
