8:00 - guest speaker - Sherwood Jones, 25 years experience in film production, topic : "newest technologies in film making"
Sherwood Jones started making movies at age 11. As a result, he has wandered a crooked path through three different film gauges, numerous video formats, and even more digital file codecs, not to mention editing with splicers, push buttons, and computer mice. He works in the postproduction realm as editor, assistant editor, and postproduction supervisor; however, his personal filmmaking keeps up his interest in cameras and other production gear. He is into the art, business, history, and technology of the medium.
Fresh from NAB, Sherwood will share some of his recent findings and observations about the latest toys and trends, and also welcomes your input as to what treasures you have recently found in the ever-shifting landscape.
Hope u can make it.
