2008 will be great! We are going to kick of the year with a presentation on User-Generated Content and whether or not there’s a business model in there that matches what you want to do. We will also be trying to get a session on the Red camera, be inviting you to a showreel showdown with an opportunity to get feedback on your reel, learn about directing actors, digital grading, dealing with clients and how to avoid the ten worst things you can do in a job interview. We will have our annual screening of the electronic theatre in August and hope to see you throughout the year at these events. Thanks everyone for participating in a terrific year of great speakers in 2007.
