President's Message January 2018

A GREAT YEAR AHEAD

larry Stimson at computerBy almost all accounts, 2018 should be a good year for all businesses, including Media.  Distribution giants like Netflix and Amazon are starving for original content.  I expect many of our members will benefit from this new demand.

We’re going to kick off the new year with an exciting presentation from Blackmagic Design.  We’ll see some really cool cameras and a demonstration of their revolutionary new software, DaVinci Resolve.  Best of all, this meeting is Free!  So come join us on Wenesday, January 31 from 11 am to 3 pm.  It will be well worth your time.

And, there is more to come!  In February, we’ll learn all about microphones.  In March, we’ll have a lively discussion about the best and worst endings for films and TV stories. It will run the gamut from “That was great!” to “Is that it?!”  Then in April, we’ll learn more about cameras and lighting.

We need your help.  In order to attract experts in cutting edge technologies to our meetings, we need the financial support of our members.  If your membership has lapsed or you have been considering becoming a member, please join us.  Your fellow members will greatly appreciate it.

President, SoCal Media Pros
