EVENT REVIEW: OC MediaProCamp 2014 Sponsored By Panasonic

While the crowd was not at full capacity, the event was nevertheless one of the busiest ever with special guests, award presentations and of course, the core element: ad hoc roundtable discussions on subjects chosen by the participants. It was the sixth consecutive year the event was held at Santa Ana College's Digital Media Center, and the FIFTH year Panasonic has sponsored the event in Orange County.

As someone once pointed out, no one ever leaves MediaProCamp dissatisfied because YOU get to choose the topics you're most interested in! And as someone else commented, there are always too many good topics to choose from! Individual attendees post proposed topics for discussion and then after collectively choosing the most popular, meeting spaces are assigned. Between three and five meetings were scheduled every hour. This year the crowd voted on over 20 discussion topics. A few of the most popular included: How to stand out in today's competitive marketplace; How to monitize YouTube; Building your business; Can Social Media Platforms lead to employment; Are 'Pay to Play' websites worth the investment?

Mixed in with these chosen-on-site topics each hour were opportunities to hear and talk with special guests including Indy Filmmaker Alton Glass; Executive Business Coach Jon Block; Master Editor Colin Smith of Photoshop Café; and Panasonic Evangelizer DP Bernie Mitchell who brought some of Panasonic's newest cameras to play with.
