Join us for February’s LAPPG Meeting:

The Art and Craft of Making Trailers


Join us for a special discussion with award-winning producer John Long, co-founder and co-owner of Buddha Jones, a premier LA film and television advertising agency as he outlines the creative and technical aspects of creating compelling trailers. This is an amazing opportunity to learn from a master storyteller.




Longtime LAPPG presenter and Boris FX Product Specialist, Mary Poplin, will demonstrate some of the new features in Sapphire and Continuum, including Particle Illusion inside of Continuum, parameter tracking for effects in Continuum, and Lens Flare updates and the effects editor in Sapphire. Mary is excited to show off the brand new Particle Illusion motion graphics generator (previously “particleIllusion”), featuring a real-time 64-bit application with an easy-to-use interface, new searchable emitter library, thousands of presets to get you started quickly, and integrated Mocha tracking. Mary will also cover the new Boris FX App Manager for all products to show you how easy it is to keep track of your licenses. Come see how you can add that extra sparkle to your shots with ease. Whether you are new to particles or effect design, or a seasoned veteran, we know you’ll get something out of this exciting demo.
