RED Los Angeles User Group

Please RSVP here
Come on back to another big RED Los Angeles User Group meeting and a tasty breakfast from Porto's Bakery across the street. This list is not final, we'll have updates in the coming weeks.
Image Systems (formerly known as Digital Vision) will show their latest tools in Nucoda Film Master. The additions to the color grading system allow use of OpenEXR files which is just what the doctor ordered for the new Epic camera's HDRx™ mode.
Shot on RED One, the feature film Skyline released by Universal late last year was finished using the new HDR (high dynamic range) workflow in Nucoda Film Master. Since many of you have seen the film we have asked Image Systems to emphasize the actual HDR toolset and show us the examples where OpenEXR gives cinematographers more creative control than the standard 10-bit log files.
The hip guys from The Foundry will demo the latest version of STORM. Their groundbreaking software was the first software to edit and save R3D files.
STORM brings consistency and continuity to your workflow enabling you to quickly and easily take RED media from camera, through editorial and onto post-production and delivery. STORM allows you to efficiently organize and integrate your RAW RED content with your editing solution, visual effects software and finishing products, providing a consistent reference throughout the process.
John Matlick and Ken Drapkin of ConstantVelocityTechnology will introduce the MightyPacks™ solid state drives.
MightyPacks™ are the only motion imaging drives that guarantee average speeds of 245MB/s and are easily combined for faster performance. Energy efficient and practically indestructible, they are designed to never falter, even when full, fragmented, or under extreme load. The demo will feature Media Composer playback of mutiple RED streams, and Iridas 2K Stereo.
Meet the Go-to-Guys at Kappa and a new System-based approach to dubbing: Minute-by-minute pricing – No rounding up, an Online Dub Job Estimator, Email updates on the status of your job, In by 3 pm out by 10 am the next business day and most importantly Discount Studio Pricing for the independent producer.

We're very excited to have Christian Bloch (EdenFX, HDRLabs.com) who will complement the Image Systems demo with a seminar on the foundations of HDR image capture and post. You will learn why HDR is becoming one of the most important advances in digital imaging.
Christian is a VFX artist who created visual effects for StarTrek: Enterprise, Lost, 24, Chuck and several movies. He has pioneered the practical application of HDR images in post, specifically under the budgetary and time restraints of broadcast production. He is the author of the HDRI-Handbook, a unique guide to shooting, stitching and using panoramic HDR images.
Our friend Scott Snare is hosting the Owners' Circle where you can chat about any RED subject. Scott is one of the most experienced RED people out there and he loves to share his insights. You don't have to be a RED owner to participate.
