**Please make a note that this month's meeting is on a Thursday.**

Join the Los Angeles Post Production Group for our November 15, 2018 meeting (doors open at 7pm) where we are exploring DIY filmmaking featuring these two valuable presentations:


Director John K.D. Graham, Cinematographer Richard Galli, and Producer/Actors Helenna Santos and Alexandra Boylan all set out to do what many filmmakers would consider impossible. The four of them trekked through the New Mexico desert for 12 days to shoot their feature film At Your Own Risk with a $1,000 production budget. Upon returning to Los Angeles, their post production team brought this micro-budget film to life.

At Your Own Risk was created to test the self-distribution model, releasing on iTunes and Amazon through Distribber (as well as atyourownriskmovie.com with added Behind the Scenes and Filmmaker Commentary). At the time of this writing, the film has nothing but 5 star reviews on iTunes.

Alexandra, John and Rick will be sharing this journey with the LAPPG community. Find out how four people shot a feature film for $1,000, navigated post with a handful of people and adapted the film along the way, you can follow their journey on instagram at @atyour_ownrisk.


Corporate, commercial and in-house production is changing in terms of structure and resources. While the equipment has gotten better and better (and less expensive), the crews have become much smaller! Small to No Crew production is commonplace in today’s production to post-production landscape.

With this new landscape also comes the technology side of things which is constantly changing (especially in terms of cameras & lighting). When you are the producer, director, DP and camera operator on a job you really need to understand how things work and where things are going in terms of these tools so you can effectively use them to tell your stories.

In this special presentation, Jem Schofield of theC47 will give you insight into the future of Small to No Crew production including an understanding of the move from HD to HDR production and some of the tools that you need to know about to work within that landscape now and into the future!

Jem Schofield is a producer, DP and educator and the founder of theC47 (a full service production company that focuses on video production, filmmaking, consulting & education).
