- Christine Steele: FCP Tips and Tricks
- Eric Escobar: “Plug-Ins Won’t Save You”A plug-in package alone won’t create the “look” of your movie. A “look” is a combination of preproduction, design, performance, camera work and post wizardry. Eric will show us how to deconstruct a “look” from a TV show or movie, and reconstruct it on-the-cheap.
- Yun Suh: Clips from the documentary film “City of Borders” (Show and Tell)

Plus food, (snacks) and drink will be available.This is your chance to get out of the office and network, learn what you need to learn, and celebrate your creativity with 600 other like minded people. And there is no more important time to do this than now.
