2009 is on it's way!
We have had some awesome meetings and their are several exciting opportunities coming our way in the new year as well!
You definitely want to be at this next meeting. Not only do we have a great line up of presenters but there are some exciting things going on behind the scenes that I will update everyone on!

So enough chit it is:

Ronald J. Norick Downtown Library

300 Park Avenue

Oklahoma City, OK 73102
(405) 231- 8650
4th floor
TUESDAY, JANUARY 13, 2009 - 6P.M.

6p.m. - 6:30p.m. Open Discussion:

We will be open for Q&A as well as Show & Tell. If you have something you have been working on and want to show it off....bring it! This is a free for all, if you are working on something and need some insight, hopefully we’ll have someone there who can help out.

6:30p.m. - 7:00p.m.
AUDIO, AUDIO, AUDIO.....What to do, where to go!
Paul Thomas is going to bring out some mics and give us a run down on the never ending battle of quality vs. price. There is also the difficulty of selecting the right mic depending on how windy it may be or whether you are in a studio setting, outside, in a large hall, there is a never ending list of obstacles you can run into on the audio side of this world. Never fear, Paul Thomas is here! He will help light the way through this treacherous audio minefield.

7:00p.m. - 7:20p.m. Chris Martin - In Living Color

Chris is going to show basic Apple Color techniques covering round robin workflow from Final Cut to Color and back. We’ll cover entry level color grading and picture enhancement. I don’t know about you guys but I haven’t even opened this program up yet. I am definitely in need of a Color kick start!

7:20p.m. - 7:40p.m. Critical Mass - David Callahan & Don Stephens

We'll be discussing the challenges of creating the OU Pregame Stadium video in 32x9 format.

7:40p.m. - 8:00p.m. Story Time with DVD Studio Pro:

I am going to go over a DVD project I got into and didn’t really know how to address when I was first asked if it could be done. I had never even heard of a “Story” in DVD studio Pro. After figuring out some of what you could do with them, they have really opened up some creative and diverse ways for me to build DVDs now. They add some flexibility to your menus and also come in handy if you are running low on disk space.

This is gong to be a great meeting, I hope you can make it out! We have some great presenters lining up for March already as well, but please be thinking of being a part of our next meeting. And even if you don’t want to or can’t, maybe you know someone who could. Just let me know and we’ll get the ball rolling!

Everybody remember to get some “Behind the Scenes” footage of you and your families at Christmas. Nothing big but it would be fun to see you guys with the fam!

Everybody be sure to have Tuesday, Jan 13th marked on your calendars. We ended 2008 with a great meeting, let’s kick off 2009 with one even better!!
