Join us for our next meeting at Crossroads School – Roth Hall.




(What I’ve learned (so far) about building a following on YouTube.)


Are you on the YouTube bandwagon? Are you curious what it takes to make a channel work?
Then come join us for an entertaining evening with Chris Smith of the popular Chris & Jack Channel where he will be sharing his insights, experience and hacks for creating a successful YouTube Channel. If you’re interested in producing YouTube content that will resonate with your audience and will be creatively fulfilling, come and bring questions and join the discussion.

Chris will be exploring topics such as audiences, goals for your channel, the YouTube algorithm, writing, producing and editing with a partner, editing techniques and production hacks and if anyone asks him he’ll probably throw in a little juggling on the side!

Chris Smith, is a professional filmmaker and juggler (yes, such a thing exists.) In 2016 Chris and Jack De Sena created their YouTube channel, titled “Chris & Jack”, which has served as a shared platform to write, produce, direct, edit, and star-in their own projects. They also co-wrote and directed the hit web series, “Dorm Life.” Chris recently co-wrote the upcoming HULU VR series “Door #1” and is also an accomplished video editor, having just completed a season of Tru-TV’s hit show “The Carbonaro Effect.” His first experiment combining juggling, producing, and editing was the Reddit viral video hit, “Juggling Around Iceland.” He has also been seen all over the country as a Blue Man in Blue Man Group.





Since 360 Stereoscopic Film/VR is new to most, Shelley Andagan, Head of Post-Production and Operations of 3DPaint/FX will delve into the differences versus similarities between VR projects and traditional media spanning from their inception to fruition. Through her work at 3DPaint/FX. Andagan has managed the completion of over 20 VR projects. These 360 films range from scripted to documentary-style shoots with both monoscopic and stereoscopic deliveries at various levels of VFX integration. She also oversaw stereoscopic conversion projects for the studio’s VR and traditional film clients. Some of Shelley’s 360 film credits which derive from her work alongside VR houses Within / Here Be Dragons and Milk VR include: The New York Times Magazine’s “Great Performers” 9-film noir anthology, USA Network’s “Mr. Robot” VR Experience, General Electric’s 5-plus-episode series, “The Possible”,  Samsung VR’s “The Raid” Prequel to Fox’s “24: Legacy” and United Nations films “The Ground Beneath Her” and “My Mother’s Wing”.
