President's Message: A Great Beginning

One of the things I liked best about September’s “Great Scene Analysis” meeting was how everyone participated.  Of course, we all have our own unique perspectives about movies and TV shows.  Some of us enjoy the story, others appreciate the acting and still others appreciate the technical aspects of filmmaking such as sound, lighting and camera. I particularly enjoyed the trivia or insights people shared about their clips.  Of course, not all my questions were answered.  For example, in Hitchcock’s “North by Northwest,” how was it that a biplane could not have avoided crashing into a gasoline tanker in the middle of nowhere? If you weren't there you missed a fun evening with fellow professionals.

SoCal Media Pros Announces Programs For Fall '16!

Education about all things media and bringing together professionals and the public is the official mission of the new SoCal Media Pros.  Film Producer Art Kirsch, the treasurer of the new non-profit, explained: "We're a California non-profit corporation, approved to solicit donations and sponsoring memberships.  We have applied for  tax exempt 501c3 status, which we anticipate will be granted during the fourth quarter, so we can provide all the same services the old MCAI did." This means you can expect the meetings and events featuring professional media experts to continue.

In fact, SoCal Media Pros is ready to announce its Fall schedule starting with "Great Scene Analysis" in September, "Location, Location, Location" in October, and a special training event for film and video editors in November. You can also count on the members of SoCal Media Pros organizing a fun Holiday Mixer in December. Details of these events along with articles about professional media are on the organization's website, www.SoCalMediaPros.org

Brian Page, a member of the new Board of Directors for SoCal Media Pros put it all in perspective. "The national organization that was MCAI and ITVA before it, is no more. But the tradition of bringing working media professionals together to serve the community carries on with SoCal Media Pros and many other new organizations resurrected from the former MCAI Chapters around the country."
