In celebration of the end of summer we decided to hit the road and leave Santa Monica behind and we traversed the wild LA terrain of freeways and traffic jams to land at a brand new filmmakers’ oasis in Glendale, CA, the Sony Digital Media Production Center (DMPC). We’d like to offer a big thank you to the team at Sony Electronics for hosting such a special meeting – from tours of this beautiful new facility, to the generous food and drink they provided and for allowing our members to explore this amazing educational resource for filmmakers. The facility includes a production stage, a workflow suite, and a photo studio, as well as a theater with a 23’ wide, 6K Crystal LED display, having a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 for stunning HDR playback! After networking and touring we were treated to an informative seven person panel moderated by Sony’s Dan Perry. We learned what it takes to post a one-hour drama using the X-OCN codec of Sony’s VENICE camera with the post production team from the upcoming Freeform show, “Motherland: Fort Salem” Finally capping the evening off was our popular monthly giveaway, which culminated in an terrific prize supplied by Sony of their RX0 ii camera.
