Hello BCPVA members and guests,

This Month – Hands on skills that every pro should know!   Tuesday, May 22nd , 2018.

We’ll be at the Community Living Society, located on the 7th floor of 713 Columbia Street in New Westminster (Columbia & Begbie, beside Waves coffee shop).

Networking will begin at 6:30, and the meeting will formally begin at 7:00 and run until 9:00 with a 15 minute break.

1)   Untangling the Mysteries of Log, LUT’s and External Recorders

External recorder/monitors have become a key production tool for getting the accurate exposure, focus and professional codecs needed for 4K, Log and HDR. This week, Joseph Kafka from Little Bird Media will share with us his experiencing shooting in a log color profile with the Sony FS5 and the Atomos Assassin 4k external recorder. He will bring both to the meeting for a hands-on look and lesson into using log and LUTS with an external recorder. Along the way, we will learn about what a log color profile is, what Slog is, when to use an external recorder, and why you don’t need to use log 90% of the time.

2)    New Professional Member Presentation


James Nightingale began his career as a print and radio journalist before making a switch to visual story telling. He thereafter established Nightingale Films in Australia from where he produced and directed corporate and social content for major Australian companies as well as an award winning documentary. Nightingale Films is now operates in Vancouver market as well.


Meeting will end with a 15 minute open discussion.
