MEETING AGENDA: The Changing Face of Post/ Canon C300

Let’s face it, the “Post” world today is not the same as it used to be. In order to be competative, grow your business, or heck even just having a steady stream of work, requires competency, basic business sense and being open to think about your business in terms other than “Post” because it’s VERY difficult to build a Post only business today, if not impossible with the unparalleled access to post tools today by everyone.   So how do you build a business today if everyone has the tools? Come to the meeting to glean some insight from Pro’s who have had to do that very thing.

First Half

Member Video Screening – We are kicking off our member “Screen and Critique” We have had a few suggestion about how nice it would be for us to view videos from our members. We will screen three or four member submitted videos and give the editor ect. a few min to describe the post process and take questions from the group. For information on the submission process please email kris at atlantacutters(dot)com


The Changing Face of Post – with Walter Biscardi Jr., Owner of Biscardi Creative Media  and Special Guest TBA

Walter has grown his business from an edit suite in his spare bedroom to opening a 6000 square foot facility in 2011. But in today’s marketplace, it’s not that easy to differentiate yourself from the “masses” who now have access to tools that are oftentimes equal to what we use in “traditional Post facilities.”   So how does an editor or even a Post company stay viable in today’s “my nephew / neice can edit for us now” world?  How does a new, fresh out of college, well taught media “professional” get a foothold in today’s marketplace?   Walter shares some of his insights from over 20 years in the Post world on where he sees the business today and where he thinks it is moving going forward.   Whether you are a business owner, Freelance artist or on staff as part of a creative team, you will not want to be left out of the conversation.


Second Half

Canon USA- C300 and other goodies

Canon brings the C300 camera to Atlanta Cutters giving the group a first look at this widely discussed and loved camera. Last Nov. when the C300 was announced, there was a lot speculation as to why canon released a camera that did not seemingly have the specs that competitors cameras had, and at a price that was well out of reach of many. Well, after many hands on opportunities, the reviews are very favorable for this new camera. Come see how it works with your post workflow.
