► Last minute change - Coco, our makeup artist will not be demonstrating how easy it is to do zombies this month. Lucky for her in this economy, she has conflicting work schedules and we can readily see how she might prefer to earn the bucks while available rather than do a free demo just because she loves us so much. Here’s wishing her continued success and hoping we can reschedule for a later date.

►Instead, Terry Syndergaard will show how he transformed some cell phone video of a playful horse (Bonnie Erdrich’s client) into something watchable. After Effects’ Time Remapping and Warp Stabilization were brought into play- unwarping the jittery mess, fixing bad footage to where it is, well, less bad. A three-pronged approach was necessary. If these thrills and spills aren’t enough for you, read on. Cell phone video may be wonderful (or not) but haven’t you ever wished it were just plain better?

Feeling your pain, we will also tell you all about the app that can fix it in – get this - one click. Woo-HOO!

And what would a movie be without sound – specifically, the sounds of suspense, the sound of a dreadful breeze, or the thump of a body in the trunk, in fact, the ambiance that infuses the movie experience with a certain almost indefinable moody quality. Indeed, what are these sounds and from whence do they come?
Ask no more – our special guest will be Lauren Bedard who loves creating just such aural phenomena. Lauren will share her creative process and we will hear examples, including eerily haunting melodies utilizing her own voice.

Please download and print a parking permit from this link (
