New OCMMA Special Interest Group!!
Focus: Video on the Web and Mobile Devices
Everyone attending the Debut meeting will receive an 8 X 10 glossy of our new group's symbol with the designation, "I was there when we broke ground!"
The focus of Web – Video Crossroads (Adobe User Group) will be to inspire and instruct our members to take advantage of opportunities involving online video and the underlying technology. Under the leadership of Mike McGready, Owner and Creative Director of Album of Life video studios, this SIG will look at ways to take advantage of Internet opportunities for our own and clients' websites, as well as the abundance of social networking sites. Creation of profitable, rich media websites and production of quality audio and video resources for our clients are the desired results.
Since Internet video is our target, we will be using and discussing Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Premiere Pro, Soundbooth, Visual Communicator and several other related softwares. Of course, softwares such as Flash deal with video so we will coordinate our topics with OC Flash to make sure we don't duplicate effort. Other video software like Final Cut Pro may occasionally be part of the conversation but if you are looking for a FCP User Group, this ain't it! Whether you are a web designer, web developer, or a video/audio producer, our topics will be stimulating for you.
Mike will be looking for an enthusiastic volunteer to co-manage the group. The former OCMMA Internet/Dreamweaver SIG is no longer part of OCMMA.
The Web Video Crossroads SIG meets on the second Thursday of every month. Admission fees for this SIG will be waived during our startup promotion.
