NAB2005- Who's going?
Hi, sorry if this is the wrong area to make this thread in but I just signed up for NAB2005 and was wondering who I might see there? It would be interesting to see some of my fellow DVInfo-ers there =).

Chris Hurd February 12th, 2005 02:12 PM

This is the right area, Jack, and I appreciate the thread. I will be there, planning right now on Monday thru Wednesday. Tuesday night is going to be busy -- Douglas Spotted Eagle has an after-show mixer which will happen at the LVCC in one of the meeting rooms, at the same time there's the Charles McConathy DV Cafe (formerly the ProMax DV Cafe) over at the Stardust. I have never missed that event in the past, but I don't want to miss Spot's deal either, so it looks like I'll be hustling from his mixer over to the Stardust to catch a little of both. Right now I have nothing committed to Monday or Wednesday night, so if a bunch of DVi members want to get together, I'm all for it. Let's use this thread as baseplan for putting something down. Count me in,

I plan on being there with my engineer from work. No plans yet, but a couple of years ago we went to the Roscor party. Most likely we will again this time.

Charles Papert February 12th, 2005 11:08 PM

I'm booked on a feature all through March and April, so no NAB for me this year. Bummer. I'll have to live vicariously through the reports here.

Barry Gribble February 13th, 2005 12:39 AM


That sounds like a fair trade... what's the feature?

There is a big racquetball tournament there the weekend before or after every year (coincidence) and I like to try to hit both if work allows... if there is a DVers night, I am up for it.

Charles Papert February 13th, 2005 10:35 AM

Fair trade--I guess. Unfortunately I had to turn down DP'ing a smaller feature to take this one as an operator for a variety of reasons. It's all good, but I have a couple of my own projects which are begging to get into production (my long-delayed Steadicam instructional video is one of them).

Technologically, the one interesting thing is that the look of the film is intended to be largely handheld, and we are examining various methods of achieving this other than just literally handholding. Here is one device that we will be testing--it's made by the same guys who make my Steadicam harness, so I already own the "expensive" part of the apparatus. It's like a beefed-up, next generation Easyrig (since the camera I'll be shooting with weighs over 40 lbs, beefed-up is good!)

Scott Anderson February 13th, 2005 03:48 PM

I'll be there Sunday through Thursday, and at the DV Cafe. I'm also up for Monday or Wednesday night, or even beers after the DV Cafe.

Michael Horton February 13th, 2005 09:07 PM

Hey Chris

Commit yourself to our annual FCP shindig Wednesday April 20


We can use ya for taking tickets :-)

I'll also be hosting the Promax event this year. Both show are going to be must attend events.

Chris Hurd February 13th, 2005 09:48 PM

Thanks Michael,

I wouldn't dream of missing the yearly NABified LAFCPUG jamboree!

But taking tickets, wouldn't that automatically disqualify me from the raffle? Oh well, perhaps doing that will prevent Wilt and Hodgetts from drinking me under the table again.

Robert Mann Z. February 13th, 2005 09:54 PM

i will be at nab thursday...any closing parties going thursday night Chris...?

Chris Hurd February 13th, 2005 10:01 PM

Man, by that time, Robert, I hope to be home in bed or nearly there. I'm limiting myself to the first three days this year. Is that the only time you'll be around?

Michael Horton February 13th, 2005 10:03 PM

Ned Soltz took tickets last year and won a DeckLink HD card. No one complained. Course - what you going to say to a Rabbi?


Robert Mann Z. February 14th, 2005 12:32 AM

is one day enough to see nab....i have never been there, should i give it two...i'm free all week, and have a job the week after st. george utah...

Greg Boston February 14th, 2005 12:41 AM

I plan to be there for the whole thing if Chris will ever email me that info he promised. Nudge, nudge Chris.


Michael Horton February 14th, 2005 12:52 AM

3 days is usually minimum for NAB. It is a HUGE show and make sure you wear comfortable shoes.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 02:28 AM.
