Photo & Video: Working together in harmony.Tuesday, July 26, 2011
N. Orange Ave. STE. 755Orlando, FL
Meet the panel:
Worked for Kodak Event Imaging Solutions as the National Training Manager from 2000-2003. As the training manager i opened operations and trained operation managers across the country in operating their digital photography operations. This included the digital transition and workflow of the Sandals Resort Wedding Operations. At the time I transitioned from that role to Project Manager the sites I opened and provided ongoing training and support were generating ove $40million annually. As the role of Project Manager it allowed me to more time to pursue my own company Digital Imaging Direct. As a project manager for Kodak I oversaw and created the workflow, equipment purchasing list build out design in addition to overseeing and managing the overall project budget which in some cases exceeded $1,000,000. Early 2007 was a turning point in my career when I saw the potential and opportunity to take my part time side business full time. Digital Imaging Direct quickly went from a primarily event and convention photography business to a wedding business shooting over 40 weddings annually. Our corporate photography is still a huge part of our business with providing over 1000 headshots annually for multiple corporations. We also provide photography and video services annually to IAAPA which is one of Orlando's largest convention/tradeshows that travels to our area.

That said, it's been four years since the last significant upgrade, and Final Cut Pro 7 is a 32-bit tool in a 64-bit world. Log and transfer conversion to ProRes is a foreground operation and can take hours, complicating same-day edits and other quick-turn operations. As of a few weeks ago, Apple has taken Final Cut Pro 7 off the market, so if you're expanding operations and need to add seats to your operation, you're out of luck. Looking forward, while Apple has stated that Final Cut Pro 7 will run on Lion, they've made no similar assurances for DVD Studio Pro, Soundtrack Pro, Color, and legacy versions of Motion and Compressor. Simply stated, sooner or later you're going to have to move to a new editor. If you're a DSLR shooter, it's probably sooner than later.

In an article just posted on SF Weekly: "Posting Copyrighted Music to YouTube Might Soon Earn You Jail Time"
Yesterday the Senate Judiciary Committee recommended a bill for the Senate that would make it a felony to "make a public performance by electronic means" of a copyrighted work, i.e. illegal streaming of copyrighted material. This offense would carry the same penalty of illegal reproduction and distribution of copyrighted works: up to five years in prison, a fine, or both.
The bill has the support of just about every copyright-holding organization, including the RIAA, the MPAA, Disney, NBC Universal, and others. On the introduction of the bill to the Senate in May, the RIAA commented: "As the music industry continues its transition from selling CDs to providing fans convenient access to a breadth of legal music online, laws that provide effective enforcement against new and developing forms of content theft are essential to the health of our business." Basically, the companies don't want to be left behind when technology progresses more quickly than laws that can make various infringements illegal.
So what does this mean to you? Will you stop uploading your videos online? Comment below!

--The group agreed that everyone should take ownership of the future of PVCF. Members need to take initiative and commit to making individual and meaningful contributions to enhance the PVCF experience.
--To that end, The group agreed that everyone on the board (and and more broadly, in the organization) should do approximately an hour's work a month to further the goals of the organization. These small contributions, such as planning and delivering a presentation, finding a guest speaker, contacting a vendor for donated swag, or running the raffle should require minimal time and effort, but have a tremendous impact on the group as a whole.
--As mentioned above, All members should be involved in programming, even if it's just a 5-10 minute talk on something they found interesting or something at which they excel
--The members agreed to re-visit the bylaws at the next meeting, as some of the terms and bylaws are outdated and are not reflective of the direction of the group. (eg. Webmaster should be changed to Communication Director, and the position of Librarian should be eliminated, which was approved by a majority vote)
--The board agreed to have meetings before the general members' meeting each last Tuesday of the month
--The new board was elected:
President - Brian Bazala
Vice Pres. - Doug Howard
Secretarty - Karen Osbourne
Treasurer - Bobby Fishbough
Comm. Dir. - Mary Angelini
Promo Dir.- Steven Gray
Membership Dir. - Marc Percy
--The group also discussed a possible name change with Video Pros of Orlando getting a top nod, followed by Production Pros of Orlando. We welcome suggestions.
A special work session of the new Board will be held on Tuesday July 5 at 8 at Pixel 1080. General membership is invited to contribute and offer input but will not be permitted to vote on Board-related matters.

Board voted to change membership categories and fee structure as follows:
Full Member (Business Owner or Freelance Subcategory) -- $60
Associate Member (An employee/spouse of Full Member) -- $20
Student Member (requires Student ID and recent class schedule) -- $30*
* Full Sail Students are exempt from fee
This eliminates the categories of non-business member, hobbyist, etc.
We will be reverting to the original dues collection date of May 1.
Discussed long-term goals, including broadening the focus to include more diverse facets of video, film and tv production, better emphasizing the needs of the independent video producer who "wears multiple hats".
To better reflect this broader focus, the Board would like to consider a name change (eg. Video Professionals of Central Florida). We would like suggestions for potential new group names from our members.
We also discussed the need for more member participation in the areas of promotion, featured speakers and sponsors.
