December’s meeting was festive and fun and a great way to send off the year! With a thorough and informative presentation, Mark Anderson from LaCie shared a ton of storage and workflow information, answered many of our questions and gave and an amazing explanation of RAID storage. After the break filled with holiday treats like cream puffs, eclairs, gingerbread and lots of networking we had the pleasure of welcoming senior colorist from ArsenalFX Color, Rory Gordon. We learned about the fascinating research she did on a white paper she delivered at SMPTE, on observations she made on the effect of HDR as it varies through visual styles, using examples from a one hour medical drama, a half hour super hero comedy, and a one hour spy thriller. The audience was fascinated. Thank you to both Mark and Rory and all our presenters this year. And to our members, partners and friends, we can’t wait to see you in the new year! Thanks for your support!
Come get inspired at our first meeting of the year!

Independent filmmaker Noam Kroll returns to LAPPG to outline his key principles for building and sustaining a career as a content creator today. Using real world examples from his narrative feature films which have been produced on micro-budgets and self-distributed, Noam will break down the fundamental steps any filmmaker can follow to create, sell, and market their work to a global audience.

In an effort to give back to the community, Noam launched a blog – www.noamkroll.com – in the fall of 2012 which has since grown to become a burgeoning resource for independent filmmakers, producers, cinematographers, photographers, and editors alike.
