Join us September 23 at 6:30pm to hear about the future of virtual production

Virtual Production a term that has grown exponentially since the release of The Mandalorian. While the concept of Virtual Production has existed for years, the pandemic combined with the Firestarter of success by the new Star Wars streaming series, has led to a renaissance in digital filmmaking. Epic Games is at the forefront of this activity and is investing in a training series called “The Epic Games Virtual Production Fellowship” where they are training creatives and technologists how to leverage Unreal Engine, a game engine to redefine the content production workflow for film and television creation. Please join Erik Weaver, Konstantin Wilms and our host Jack Wenzinger who have all been through the Epic Games Fellowship and will discuss the experience, the industry under change and the future of content production.

This will be an online-only meeting over Zoom.

SMPTE Rocky Mountain / SBE-48 Summer Picnic 2021

SMPTE and SBE members from far and wide came out of hibernation for the first time in a year and a half, as we were able to enjoy our first in-person event since before the pandemic began.

Almost fifty made the trek up to our traditional picnic spot, atop Lookout Mountain. We have gathered there for right around 30 years now, with the only one I can think was missed being 2020. Bennett’s BBQ provided a feast, as usual, and the weather was glorious.

SBE-48 Chair, Jack Roland, served as our Master of Ceremonies and designated drone pilot, and did a fine job of both. Due to the extreme generosity of companies such as Nautel, RCS, Wheatstone, Greiner Electric, Galvanized Endeavors, Broadcasters General Store, Telos Alliance and Pro Audio (who donated the grand prize), no one went home empty-handed, as we had terrific door prizes galore. Sustaining member Ross Video supported with both a generous financial donation, and a plethora of cool socks and hats.

Erik Hood of iHeartMedia was the lucky recipient of the Mackie MC-150 headphone grand prize – congrats, Erik! Local and State regulations permitting, it’s our intention to return to in-person meetings and try simulcasting (and recording) them for those who cannot attend in person. The first of these is planned for August 18th at K-LOVE. You’ll get all the details via email and it will be posted on our website, so we hope to see you there.
