Hey Y’all and welcome to the Post Production 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, an Editor is not just an Editor. Heck a Graphic Artist, a Sound Designer, a Web Designer is not just that any longer. 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 Post Production artist who just wears one hat.
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 and how we all interact. 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, November 8th.
“The Merging of Production and Post” at the Atlanta Creative Ball.
The evolution of digital production has brought about a cosmic shift in the “traditional roles” of Production and Post. We’re seeing a complete merging of the Production and Post workflow from basic video projects to television shows all the way to feature films. Join us for what will be a great discussion on the evolving roles and what this means for ‘traditional post production’ moving forward.
We’re thrilled to welcome back Editor Alan Bell (The Hunger Games Trilogy, Spiderman, Butter and many more). We’re excited to finally get Editor Monica Daniel (The Nerdist, The Oscars, Still Screaming) to the ATL as she has been a major fixture in the LA Post world for quite some time. Editor Scott Simmons (EditBlog, Music Videos, ProVideo Cooalition) is constantly testing, evaluation and reviewing new products for both Post and Production along with turning around projects, he’ll join us to moderate the panel. Kenneth Brady is the Senior VP of Media Technology and Operations for Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. He is currently leading initiatives to unify Turner’s operations around content storage, metadata enhancement, media preparation, and globalized distribution.
