TOCPUG: Toronto Creative Pro Users Group, holds monthly meetings (every third Tuesday).  If you are an indie filmmaker, a wedding videographer, or someone just wanting to see the coolest new gizmos/gadgets: THIS GROUP IS IT.  
We are open to all fields of the biz (from screenplay to post).
Great place to network, share ideas and showcase the best in the biz.

Next meeting Nov 15th

Hi/Bonjour fellow TOCPUG’ers

We are prepping for the final meeting of the year! (Can’t believe it’s already November).
We are thinking of presenting/talking on two topics:  Feel free to let us know if you’d like to present on such a topic/or let someone you know who’d be great to seminar on this matter:
– Location Audio/Career in field sound recording.
As George Lucas once said: “Sound is half the picture”,  we will be spending some time focused on getting “Champagne sound on a beer budget”,  if you are a professional sound recordist, you are welcome to seminar/show off your gear and show us how to properly hold a boom pole! (Some sound recordists ‘rest’ the pole on their neck, that way they can operate it without tiring their arms!).
– Final Cut Pro 10.3
A seminar/tutorial on this app will naturally be great to show the group it’s newest features, tips/tricks.
Also, if you shot a short film and would like some feedback, this group is a welcoming/constructive venue.
Naturally, the ‘mystery grab bag’ will be attending on the 15th, as well as other wildly crazy/surreal moments which demands for you to be there!
We hold meetings each month at St. Clair West/Bathurst:  We are hardware/software agnostic showcasing/networking with the best people in the biz: open to all/forever free.

POST doesn’t have to be a Sisyphean task!

Hi/Bonjour fellow TOCPUG’ers!

Sept 20th is right around the corner…the BEGINNING of the FALL TOCPUG will start!
