January 14th, 2016 Meeting

Join us for our first meeting of the year!  We’ll be talking Drones and Solutions for Indies so you won’t want to miss this.



Are you interested in drones?  Come on, admit it!  You are!  But before you fly one, come and learn all about drones withDigimedia-Dude---Marcelo-Headshot the Digimedia Dude (aka Marcelo Lewin) from DigimediaDude.com.   Marcelo will cover the basics of which drone to purchase, the language of drones and ground school (so you become a safe drone flyer).  After you have the basics down, you’ll have a chance to fly a drone in a computer drone simulator. Finally, he’ll demo a real drone flight and may even let a lucky few try flying one.  This presentation is geared towards beginners.

Kevin Good, a television commercial director who’s also known for his YouTube series “Weapons of Mass Production“, is putting the finishing touches on his debut indie feature. He is joining us to talk about his strategies for tackling ambitious projects on tight budgets. The challenge: a vfx-heavy period piece set in New Orleans. Kevin talks through his post-workflow, vfx strategies and creative problem solving used to deliver more for less.
