Core members of the LAFCPUG talk about how it all happened...
The digital video scene is now firmly established with user groups, websites, talk forums, events and loads of information for those seeking knowledge. However, it wasn't always like that.
The first of the Final Cut Pro user groups started in San Francisco - around 2000. This was known as SF Cutters. Soon after the wildfire spread to LA and the Los Angeles Final Cut Pro User Group was formed. The influence of what was happening on the west coast of the USA then spread throughout the world.
In the above video piece, founding members of the LAFCPUG talk about what the digital video scene was like at the time, they relive the excitement of what can be described as a technological and creative revolution, and give insight into where we've been and where we're going.
Featuring founding members of the LAFCPUG: Andrew Balis, Philip Hodgetts, Michael Horton, Ken Stone.
