Upcoming 2012 UPVA Meetings

I am excited to announce a few things for this year in UPVA. First off the schedule and location has changed for all meetings. We are planning on having our meetings the first Tuesday of every month with February 7th being our first. The location will be at Pictureline in Salt Lake (address below) and they were gracious enough to give us their board room from 10:30am-12:00pm. I am very excited about this partnership with Pictureline and think it will benefit all of us to be in such a great learning environment.

I have been working on getting meetings planned for this year and wanted to roll out the first two:

February 7th (Music Licensing)
We will talk about the legal issues of music licensing within the Wedding Industry with a guest speaker (skype) the owner of www.songfreedom.com Matt Thompson. This is a huge issue right now and needs to be addressed and understood by all professionals.

March 6th (Color Grading)
Denver Riddle from Color Grading Central will be here to explain the basics of Color Grading and have some short tutorials. This is an essential part of filmmaking and often overlooked in Wedding Films. I am excited to have a true Colorist present for us. www.colorgradingcentral.com

This years focus at UPVA will be on learning. I want great emphasis put on the basics of filmmaking and how it applies to the Wedding Film Industry. I do have some months open still and would love your ideas on what you would like to see. Feel free to email or call with any questions. Hope to see you all there!
