Next meeting: April 4th

Hi/Bonjour fellow TOCPUG’ers.

Place was PACKED last night, incredible energy with a fantastic back/forth.
This really is what TOCPUG is all about: A place where creative/technical types
can get together monthly and discuss/present their work/new ideas.
Next meeting will be held April 4th.  We already have a few presenters lined up, but
if you shot a short film and would like to present/discuss it, let us know!
We hold meetings on the third Tuesday of every month. 550 St. Clair West 2nd floor (Close
to St. Clair West Subway). Our meetings are not streamed: this enables us to be as blunt/honest 
with our opinions: this is a strength.  Free Timbits and sodas!
Open to All/Forever Free.
Next meeting: April 4th.

OCT 18th: Locking a gig in this wacky biz.

TOCPUG: Oct 18th
550 St. Clair West. 2nd Floor.
Toronto.  7-9pm
All are welcome, forever free.

One of the main purposes of TOCPUG is to help fellow attendees: learn something new, share something new and most important: Get a gig.

This upcoming meeting will be split into two topics:

  1. Those new to the biz (film school grads).
  2. Those who’ve been in one field, but wish to ‘pivot’ to another field (editors shifting to directing)

Other topics/mini-seminars and of course: Gadget giveaways will be part of the bag on this upcoming TOCPUG! October 18thTOCPUG_OCT-18TH_AD.jpg

If you think you have something to say/contribute to the Q&A, give an anecdote over how you secured a gig: Please feel free to join us!
