PDXFCPUG: An Evening of Color

PCC Cascade Campus
705 N. Killingsworth St.
Portland, OR 97217, US (map)



If you’ve been struggling with or wondering about the amazingly cool software, Color (that comes with the Final Cut Studio 2), this is the meeting for you! Jack Chavez has been working with it for years (*see below), and will be traveling here to share some of his expertise and enthusiasm. That is the main reason why we are starting a bit earlier and getting under way at 6:30 for his presentation. Please note, this month’s presentation will be 90 minutes. Lots of good information to be covered. If you know anyone else in the community who might benefit from this next meeting, please pass this newsletter along.

Please note we are starting the meeting a little earlier to get things moving a little quicker.

Jack Chavez will share his in-depth knowledge using Apple's Color. He will demonstrate his methods and workflow when using Color.

Jack Chavez is a Creative Director and Producer at Intel Corporation where he has worked in-house for eight years. Jack was an early adopter of the software program that came to be known as Apple Color and has mostly recovered from the trauma of trying to finish high visibility videos with flaky beta software. Jack believes the future looks bright for Color and he is an enthusiastic user.

He got started in production shooting 8mm film shorts as a child, and after a great many twists and turns was surprised one day to find himself starting a fledgling video production company: Image Works. Yes, those jerks at Sony stole the name, but he holds no grudges. Five years later he was hired by his biggest customer, Intel, and he has been trying to get out of meetings ever since. (this is AJ’s description I cannot take credit for the humor)
