    Ross Shain really presented the Mocha Pro information very well. It was very entertaining as well. I like that Mocha is basically PhotoSHOP for motion picture!

    I'm glad that you found it useful. I plan to have 2 types of workshops for the group in the near future. One lead by a professional instructor and one led by member participation. As I mentioned yesterday, the fastest way to develop your own skill sets is to teach it to others. It would also look good on your résumé to had lead a workshop. But these events can only work with the groups continued participation and accurate RSVP attendance.

    To those that RSVP yes, and never showed or bothered to change it to no, please be more considerate of the group, there were about 10 people on the wait list that weren't able to attend because you were filling up the spot yet we had a few seats empty.

    To those that notified me of their cancellation, I thank you and so do the people who were able to make it from the wait list.
