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.

In that spirit, we created the Atlanta Cutters in 2011.  Sure we’re gonna spend a lot of time talking about the tools we all use, but moreso, we want to discuss 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.   So while you’re going to see a lot of product demonstrations, you’re also going to hear from folks on the hows and whys of what they do.   We hope the combination of tools and stories will inspire and motivate all of us to do what we do better.   We hope the group fosters more collaboration by introducing new tools, workflows and even local artists to each other.

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.

So to one and all in the Post Production Community, we say welcome to Atlanta Cutters!

Walter, Dan, T.J., Kylee, and Robbie


NEXT EVENT: Saturday, March 21. 

“Making and Distributing the Independent Film” featuring the creators of “The Living.”

“The Living” is an intense thriller that builds to a tremendous finish.  The story of the making of the film is one that anyone who is an aspiring filmmaker or making a film now should hear.  From the creative and technical of making the film to getting it financed and distributed, the Shooting Films team is coming to share a lot of great information.   From shooting to editing to sound to color to ultimately getting the film into festivals and distribution.

Shot entirely on location with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, “The Living” shows how redemption, revenge, forgiveness, inhumanity interweave in an ill-fated tale of life and unforeseen circumstances.   Joining the panel will be Producer, Writer, Director Jack Bryan.  Producer Laura DuBois.  Producer John Snyder.  The panel will be moderated by Atlanta Cutters Co-Founder Walter Biscardi, Jr.

This is a fantastic opportunity to not only ask these creators about the technical and creative side of making an independent film, but also the financing and distribution side.  Yes it’s great to have all these creative ideas, but how do you get them funded and ultimately distributed so others can see your work?

We’re excited to kick off the new Panel driven format Atlanta Cutters with this incredible group of creatives.  As with all of our panels, while we will have a moderator, the entire presentation is open to Q&A, so come on out and be a part of the discussion.  We thank Blackmagic Design for bringing “The Living” panel to Atlanta and Lake Lanier Island Resorts for welcoming us to the resort.   You can read more about this talented group down below the Raffle listing.
