Yeah, I'd have to hit the bar pretty hard before I could do any singing.

But as for the swag, consider it done -- and thanks!

lafcpug to meet Feb 22.

The next meeting of the lafcpug will be Wednesday, Feb. 22 at the Gallery Theater in stunning E. Hollywood Ca.\. It will be “Get Yourself Organized Night” because that’s about as good a title we can come up with. This show is going to be a good one, that I promise.

We will welcome DigitalFilm Tree's Ramy Katrib who will show off what can only be described as a FileMaker Pro digital replica of the organizing solution Walter Murch uses on his movies. Plus a demo of the # 1 storyboarding software for filmmakers, Storyboard Artist. Plus Steve Martin will return with tips and tricks on Color Correction in Final Cut Pro and show off Ripple Training’s brand new training DVD, “Color Correction for Final Cut Pro.” Plus Philip Hodgetts will show us how to convert HDV to SD 4:3 and future proof your HDV movie when and if HD distribution becomes available. Not enough? Ted Bonnitt returns with a brand new short movie, shot on 35mm and mastered to HDSR 4:4:4 DI He will talk a little about the workflow and show the movie.

Hold on, we are not done yet. Another round of Stump the Gurus and World Famous Raffle will wrap up the evening.

FCPUG SuperMeet: Call for Submissions

What are you doing with Final Cut Studio?

Are you going to NAB?

Great stories exist in our community and the Final Cut Pro
User Group Network (FCPUG Network) will bring these stories to the forefront to highlight at the 5th Annual NAB FCPUG SuperMeet, to take place on Wednesday, April 26th, at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas.

The FCPUG Network is looking for your best work created in Final Cut Studio. This is your chance to get your work seen by a full house of filmmakers, broadcasters, FCP editors, gurus and enthusiasts. We're talking about hundreds of people seeing what can be done and what YOU have done in Final Cut Studio. So if you will be at NAB and want to show your work, then read on.

We will choose an undetermined amount of the best submissions based solely on how interesting it sounds and on diversity. Works can be from a doc, music video, narrative, animation, wedding, corporate, home movie or graphics heavy piece, or for the web. We don’t care. We want to see what you are doing. This is not about good and bad. It's about interesting, stimulating
and diverse stories.

HOW TO ENTER:
1. Send an email to michaelh@lafcpug.org
In the email, state your name and contact info and include a
paragraph or two on what is on the tape you wish to submit. We are not accepting tapes at this time. Only emails from those who will be at NAB and at the FCPUG SuperMeet and have a piece they think will rock the house will be accepted.

2. Deadline to send your email is April 10, 2006. No
exceptions!

3. All email entries received by April 10 will be reviewed by a
panel of 5 curating judges from LAFCPUG, BOSFCPUG, CHIFCPUG
and SF CUTTERS.

4. Through the curating process will select an undetermined amount of finalists by April 13, 2006. Each finalist will be contacted using the contact info supplied in your email.

RULES:
1. You, or someone involved in the making of your work must be present at the FCPUG SuperMeet, April 26 at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas to show and tell about your work. No exceptions and no friends can show and tell for you! If you are not going to be at NAB and at our event, then don't send us a submission.

2. Your work must have been created using at least one of the applications in the Final Cut Studio Suite.

3. Your work can be on Mini DV, DVCam, DVCPro 50 or 100 or DVD only. No exceptions.

4. Each Show and Tell is limited to 5 minutes and not one
minute more. If your work is three minutes in length, that
means you will have two minutes to discuss it. NO
EXCEPTIONS. You must stay within the 5 minute limit. We
suggest keeping your work to be screened to 3-4 minutes in
length. If it is longer than 5 minutes, you will have to
edit it down before you submit it to us. We will not allow
anything over this time limit.

Send your submission now to Michael Horton at:

Awesome! One question though, what happens if someone wins the Andromeda mod but doesn't have a DVX to mod?

We will most likely ask for a raise of hands about who owns it and then limit the give out to them. Might take a little while though

I wasn't originally going to go to this, but some people have told me that it's open to the public. Is this true? I primarily use Vegas, but I work with a lot of filmmakers who use Final Cut -- so I work with it occasionally, especially at the local film fests, and my office is thinking of migrating to it. Would it be okay for me to attend, or do I need more Final Cut street cred?
