Past Meetings

March 11, 2020




Director Jon Kean with three of the amazing Holocaust survivors who served as subjects in two of his documentary films.

Jon Kean & Anne Stein, the director/editor team behind the documentaries Swimming in Auschwitz and After Auschwitz will be presenting their experiences working in the biographical documentary genre.  They will discuss the creative and technical strategies and decisions that were used to bring these historically significant films to life.

Jon, who started in the theatre world in LA and New York, has been a filmmaker since his directing debut Kill the Man opened at Sundance in 1999. He is currently in production on two new documentaries including a project about Rwanda 25 years post-genocide.

Anne started her editing career in the sound department of Milos Forman’s film, Hair. As an editor she has worked extensively with Freida Lee Mock as well as other Los Angeles based directors and has always gravitated to projects that reflect a social and emotional sensibility in line with her personal values.




OWC’s Director of Business Development, Richard Wright, will visit LAPPG’s March meeting to discuss the new OWC Mercury Helios 3S PCIe card expansion chassis for Thunderbolt 3-equipped Macs and PCs. It adds an external PCIe slot for quick and easy addition of pro-level PCIe cards, and its dual Thunderbolt 3 ports offers the ability to daisy-chain up to five additional Thunderbolt peripherals. Richard will also have on-hand the newest technology products from OWC including storage and connectivity solutions.

Richard is looking forward to meeting attendees and having the opportunity to not only introduce them to the latest solutions from OWC, but to discuss member pain points and workflow needs, so that OWC can continue to produce the solutions that creatives need to deliver their stories.
