Hey Y’all and welcome to the Creative Professionals User Group for Atlanta and of course all of the surrounding areas. Too many times these User Groups are application centric and that seems to leave too many folks out. After all in today’s world, we’re all wearing a lot of hats. Because the tools have gotten so much more accessible, all of us are multi-tasking to do whatever it takes to get the job done for the client. So it’s a rarity today to find any Production Artist who does just one task or even one area of the industry.
In that spirit, we created the Atlanta Cutters in 2011. We definitely spend a lot of time talking about the tools we all use, but moreso, we host discussions on the craft of what we do, how we all interact and the convergence of the various disciplines. Such as the merging of production and post.
Most of all, we hope this group is something you look forward to once a month as a fun place to go. Twitter, Facebook and web forums are great for all of us to connect and help each other, but let’s put the voice and face together with the avatar. Networking face to face with your fellow creatives. That’s what we’re really here for!
So to one and all in the Post Production Community, we say welcome to Atlanta Cutters!
Walter, Dan, T.J., Robbie & Wes
Accessibility of the tools, both on the set and immediately after the shoot, and the ease of use is allowing Cinematographers to create incredible imagery. Discussion to be led by Atlanta-based Cinematographer Wes Llewellyn.
A great evening of discussion inspired by Wes on how access to post production tools, especially on set, is helping cinematographers get immediate feedback and allow for adjustments and sometimes complete changes on the spot to create better imagery in camera.
We welcome Tim Glover, Director of Photography, whose work has won an Emmy Award and has worked for clients such as Bellsouth, Remington, and Dodge. William Wages, ASC is a documentarian who has traveled the world and has also worked on the ‘small screen’ with projects including “Burn Notice” and the Speilberg produced, “Into the West.” Returning to the Atlanta is Marco Solorio, founder of One River Media who began his career in post production and has become a stout Director of Photography helming the new 10/10ths documentary. Hunter Hughes, Director of Photography, helms work for both television and independent film projects. Moderating the panel is Atlanta’s own Wes Llewellyn, the newest executive member of the Atlanta Cutters and the Director of Photography for 4L Films.
