Hello BCPVA members and guests,


Join us on February 24, 2016 at JIBC for an evening of Picture and Sound:


1)     Awesome Gear for High Production Values and Stress-Free Shoots

Come check out a selection of cool cameras and gear to keep your shoots fun, not frustrating! Fusion Cine president Byron Drinkle will walk you through a selection of popular equipment – featuring the awesome Sony FS5!!

Presenter: Nathan Holley, Fusion Cine


2)       Sound: Tips for the Most Important /  Most Overlooked Aspect of Video

Spent an hour getting the lighting and framing just right, but decided to fix the sound in post? Gets some sound tips on getting it right the first time from top pro John Sawa. If you were lucky to catch his talk last year, you probably learned a lot – here is the much anticipated part 2!

A bit about John – he is an audio expert with experience in feature films, TV, radio, video games, web content, and video production. He’s currently a curriculum advisor and instructor for the Centre for Arts and Technology in Kelowna, and works as a freelance Sound Designer/Editor/Engineer for a global clientele. His many award nominations include the Leos and AMPIA’s (BC and Alberta film awards), and his work on Discovery Channel’s Klondike garnered him a nomination for a MPSE Golden Reel and a Primetime Emmy for best sound effect editing for long form television/mini series.

Presenter: John Sawa, Sawa Sound
