Panasonic 4K world

Per Wikipedia: "4K resolution is a display device or content having horizontal resolution on the order of 4,000 pixels. Several 4K resolutions exist in the fields of digital television and digital cinematography. In the movie projection industry, Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) is the dominant 4K standard…4K has become the common consumer-friendly name for ultra-high definition television (UHDTV)…  As of 2013, some UHDTV models were available to general consumers for under US$1000. However, due to lack of available content, 4K television has yet to achieve mass market appeal."

Is 4K here to stay? If so, what are the advantages and disadvantages to our community? Are you using it yet? Panasonic reps will go over 4K pros and cons, the workflow, and some hot new equipment available. Come learn about the future with Panasonic and 4K.

Joel will discuss the creative and technical decisions of doing a minimalist short film in six weeks with a cast of six and a crew of three. Come learn from Joel as he shares insight on what makes a great story and how to make your story stand out amongst others. You’ll laugh and cry and be inspired!

The easiest way in is to exit Hwy 50 at Mather Field Road South. Stay in the right or center laneAs soon as you pass Peter McCuen St, start moving over to the left lane.  The next curve takes you to ARMSTRONG where you turn LEFT. You stay on that for just about 2 blocks ‘til you reach BLECKLEY.  “Studio 50” is the last building on your right with a large parking lot before the large grass fields...
