Boise Cutters July Meeting

The July meeting of the Boise Cutters is scheduled for today (yes, I know… some advanced notice would be nice and all), Tuesday, July 13th starting at 7:00 p.m. in the Owyhee Plaza Den.

From the event’s description:

The major attraction this month is Ryan Donahue. Ryan is a creative whose talents extend into several realms. He’s taught several BSU classes and offers instruction with The Spark Commission. He is a web developer, a font designer, a motion graphics artist, a filmmaker, and is currently rocking a hardcore beard which only seems to add to his mystique. He’ll be showing off the reel of his alter-ego, Uncle Render, and will have some video projects to speak about and offer for the group to critique. He’ll also be discussing his use of After Effects and Cinema 4D.

We’ll also be continuing our discussion of the video capabilities of the iPhone 4 and how this may change the filmmaking landscape. We have Alex Daw who’ll be in to show a short film he created entirely on the phone. Shooting, editing, everything.

We’ll also be showing a recent project completed by Yellow Box Studio. They’ll show us their video and explain how to make something that kicks ass amid production budget constraints.

Full details are available here.

Boise Cutters March Meeting

The Boise Cutters will be holding their monthly meeting on Tuesday, March 9th from 7:00 p.m. – 10:0 p.m. at the Owyhee Plaza Hotel’s Den.

This month’s gathering will include a demo reel from Yellow Box Studio, and an explanation of how they use 3D imaging and compositing in their work and where they think the technology is going.

The group described itself as:

We are producers, writers, motion & graphic artists, broadcast and film professionals, advertisers, and students of the modern cool. What binds us all is our appreciation for Final Cut Pro’s ability to provide the tools that creativity demands.
