TOCPUG: Monday October 16th Canceled! Next meeting: November 20th

Next tentative meeting: Monday, November 20th

There’s not enough in terms of presenters to warrant a
meeting for tomorrow.  Most are in ‘crunch’ time/making fall deliverables (I’m on a death schedule now!) It’s a very busy time!
 .
If you want a meeting in November, drop us a line!
 .
I originally was going to leave a bunch of technical tidbits/camera/software…but that’s not what TOCPUG is all about.
So, I’ll leave you with this:

 

“Our songs will all be silenced, but what of it? Go on singing.

 

Next meeting: Monday October 16th. Have a topic/film you’d like to present?

TOCPUG meetings are now held on MONDAYS.

We already have a bunch of topics to hit on:
– GH5 Firmware 2.0.  This is quite the update, and it pushes the GH5 into H.265 – 6K territory!

If you recently made a film/doc/etc, and would like to present an excerpt/short, let us know!

 
Our group of industry types are a fantastic sounding board.  TOCPUG has some of the best
Q&A ever!  
Also, if there is an app/trick you’d like to present/tutorialize on, or a gadget you’d like to show/present,
let us know!
Next meeting: MONDAY October 16th – 7-9pm . 
 550 St. Clair West – 2nd Floor
 Toronto.
TOCPUG is open to all/forever free.

Next meeting: September!

That’s a wrap! Another great year of TOCPUG meetings! We will start up again in September, have a productive/safe summer.

Keep an eye on this page, our facebook and twitter for updates, musings and networking.  If you’d like to present at our fall meeting, have a film you’d like to Q&A on, an app to seminar, a topic you feel important for the Toronto Creative Pro Users Group: LET US KNOW.
