SoCal Media Pros presents: "Great Scene Analysis"

What's YOUR favorite scene from a movie or TV show? What makes it so memorable? The acting? Script? Camera angle? Lighting? Maybe it's an important plot point, a unique confrontation or a character revealing a truth? Is it a classic of the genre? Does it stand out among action flix, romances, comedy, mystery, war, horror or slasher movies? At this first meeting of SoCal Media Pros, YOUR favorite scene can be shared, enjoyed and analyzed so we can all learn about what makes great media moments—and how different our tastes and appreciation meters can be!  Feature films, TV shows, music videos, documentaries and more are all good—as long as we can find a clip of it to play! We've already got half a dozen great scenes to seed the evening but we need YOUR FAVORITE SCENE.

Here are the rules: Find a clip of your favorite scene on YouTube, Vimeo or on a DVD and send us the URL or whatever, so we can play it for everyone that night. You'll share what you like about it and we'll all have a great time! Remember, it's a favorite SCENE so clips are limited to 5 minutes max!

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,

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."
