OKCFCPUG March Meeting!!

Hey guys...and gals...we have an awesome meeting scheduled for March! I hope everyone can make it out. Below is an updated schedule for our next meeting. FYI, we are meeting on the 3rd Tuesday this time...MARCH 17!!

Ronald J. Norick Downtown Library
300 Park Avenue
Oklahoma City, OK 73102
(405) 231- 8650 4th floor
TUESDAY, MARCH 17, 2009 - 6P.M.

We have a very diverse line up so far and are hoping to add to it if we can.

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. Soundtrack Pro!!!

Rick has just finished the first cut of a big audio project for the FAA to test air traffic controllers. The FAA has developed 51 different scenarios using computer animation, and Rick is providing the audio portion that the test-takers will hear over headphones.
This project involved hired actors (and real controllers), recording the dialogue in a studio, and Rick finished the mix in his home studio. Rick will re-create one of the shorter scenarios to demonstrate the process. This is going to be an excellent, real-life, demonstration using Soundtrack Pro!

7:00p.m. - 7:30p.m. Adam Oxsen – Ecstasy of Gold

Adam Oxsen is a filmmaker and entrepreneur right out of the OU film school. He has big time aspirations of making big blockbuster movies in Oklahoma. Ecstasy of Gold is an action-adventure-western and is his first step towards realizing that goal. Adam is going to discuss some of the technical difficulties and workflows as well as some practical advice for those of us considering a film project. Hearing from someone who has done it is usually the best way to avoid unexpected pitfalls. Go to, to check out the trailer.

7:30p.m. - 7:55p.m. Critical Mass

Dave and Don from Critical Mass will bring out their Red Camera and answer any questions you might have about workflows, costs, accessories, formats or any other questions you might have. If you missed their recent RED party (which was AWESOME!) this will be a good chance for you to check out their set up. Dave and Don are awesome guys and have a lot of experience, this will be a good chance to get some info. on the RED.
