This was my first TIVA event. I didn’t even know they existed. I’m a WIFV member but, this event was also promoted to “us” in addition to the TIVA members. It cost $20.00 for non-members. And I will note that it’s $100.00 to join the group, for a year, at the basic level. Overall – I was extremely impressed. The food and mingle session was fantastic. They had a good beer selection and variety of munchies. Everyone was very friendly and approached me as a new face. And above all these factors – the presentation was spot on.

On to the main event….
DSLR and AF100 WORKFLOW
Presented by Matt Gottshalk & Matt Nagy
With the DSLR look appealing to more and more filmmakers, and with the
introduction of Panasonic’s AF100, dealing with these cameras’
sometimes unwieldy video formats and sound issues is often more
difficult than it seems at first glance. This seminar will hit on
pre-production considerations, field techniques, and finally how to
deal with this in the edit room, whether you’re editing on Final Cut,
Avid, or Premier.
I took many good notes comparing the AF-100 to the 7D cameras. The presenters pointed out differences that I never even considered. They actually had so much information for us on the work flow – we didn’t get to the post production presentation. Maybe they will have a part 2?!
If you are into this topic I would approach the presenters. They are reachable in many ways twitter, facebook, websites….
