#INKMINIGT 2015 What Is It and The Official Prize List

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

In 2012, the first Independent Filmmakers of the Inland Empire, NAB [National Association of Broadcasters], KISS [by Monster Mini Golf] Mini Golf Tournament (INKMINIGT) was born.

What is it and why do I throw this party?

It is indoor glow-in-the dark mini-golf in a KISS (the band) theme. And, yes, that is all that it sounds like it is! And, it is a fun way to start off NAB.

“Way back” in 2009, I went to my first NAB. I was also on Twitter at that time and I made a lot of friends in post production. Going to NAB was like a class-reunion or a coming home week. I got to meet all my friends face to face, or as they say these days, IRL (in real life).

The NAB Show is very cool and overwhelming but it’s the time after hours that really shines. There are big events and parties galore. This is where you get to see people with their hair down, so to speak.

Each year it’s the same and only gets better. Sure, sometimes I think, ah maybe I won’t go this year. But, I end up going and it has always been the best decision because it really, really pumps me up for the rest of the year.

Anyway, the first and second year, we used to meet at the Yardhouse on the Sunday night that starts NAB. It was okay but it kind of dwindled down and was kind of boring. In 2010-2011, I saw a movie that had an indoor GITD monster mini golf course in it and thought that would be fun to do and soon learned that soon a KISS themed one was opening in Vegas, just before the 2012 NAB. The rest is history.

Because I also founded the Independent Filmmakers of the Inland Empire (ifotie.com), I had connections to sponsors and I enlisted their help in prize contributions. (Who are more than eager to support it by the way! So big props to our sponsors because they get it!) So far, with the exception of 2014, when my friends over at Going Postal Show (http://www.goingpostalshow.com/) ran the party, I have used my own money to throw the party. Yes, the ticket costs money to attend, but for each and every person that attends, I personally have to outlay about $15. That adds up and one day I hope to get sponsorship money to make up that difference, but for now, it’s just my gift to my friends in the filmmaking community. And it’s worth it! This community is my second family.

    Now on to the prizes for this year:

  • An UltraStudio Mini Monitor from BlackMagic Design
  • An UltraStudio Mini Recorder from BlackMagic Design
  • 2 copies of audio master suite from Sony Creative Software (one for MAC and one for PC)

NABShow 2015 and #INKMINIGT

Friday, March 6th, 2015

Well folks, April is around the corner and that means the annual migration of “broadercasters*” to Las Vegas for the NAB Show.

Since 2009, I have been attending NAB and as I’ve mentioned over and over again, I think I will always try to find a way to go.

In 2012, I threw the first #INKMINIGT (Independent Filmmakers of the Inland Empire KISS Mini Golf Tournament) and we will be throwing the fourth one this year, on Sunday, April 12, 2015 at 9 PM.

Tickets can be purchased here: https://inkminigt2015.eventbrite.com.

I am dedicating this year’s party to the memory of one of our regular attendees and all around great video production person and friend that we lost in 2014, Brad Hagen. He was the founder of Video Resources and a personal inspiration to me and many others.

I will be attending NAB and going to #INKMINIGT, MediaMotion Ball and Supermeet.

Stay tuned for news and updates. Follow my twitter feed for the most up-to-date information!

Meet Director Mattson Tomlin – November 6, 2013 7:30 PM #IFIE Meetup

Friday, October 11th, 2013

http://www.meetup.com/Independent-Filmmakers-of-the-Inland-Empire-Meetup-Group/events/135149012/

 

November 6, 2013 7:30 PM, Meet AFI film director Mattson Tomlin at Pitzer College

 

 

Independent Filmmaker – Director Mattson Tomlin, who successfully funded his project Solomon Grundy on Kickstarter, will be here to discuss his own approach when taking a look at a project.

https://www.facebook.com/SolomonGrundyBornonaMonday

Mattson Tomlin is currently at AFI, taking the director’s track.

“I come from a town of less than 1,500 people in Massachusetts.  When I was about twelve I started recruiting the local townsfolk to be my actors and crew, and before I knew it I was 18, living in New York City, and attending the SUNY Purchase Film Conservatory.  During my time at Purchase I directed a feature film called SOLOMON GRUNDY that was released this year, and two short films called DREAM LOVER and BRUISER. The shorts are free online and I encourage you to check them out, because I made them for you.  I’m now studying at the American Film Institute and having my eyes opened wider each and every day.  I’m currently chasing a feature film that I will direct in 2014, but not before I direct my upcoming thesis film, PERSUASION.”

 

This is a great opportunity for local filmmakers.  Come learn, network and possibly win some prizes!

NAB Show 2013 – That Post Show – Video Interviews

Friday, April 19th, 2013

For NAB 2013, I decided to help produce some content with the folks at Scruffy.tv.

These videos are a first for That Post Show, the number one post production podcast on iTunes, Videos.  The That Post Show podcast has been all audio since its inception.  April 2013 marks the introduction of videos into the podcast stream.

You can see and hear all of the audio and video podcasts here:

http://tinyurl.com/TPW2012 AKA http://www.scruffy.tv/thatpostshow <- A little hard to navigate but basically follow the “>>’s” or scroll down and see a list near the bottom right.

or

http://tinyurl.com/TPS2012 AKA https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/that-post-show/id293692362 <- The iTunes page.

We’re releasing them at a steady pace and so far there are eleven (11) videos up. (Listed in latest at top order):

  • Michael Kammes at NAB 2013 <- From Keycode Media
  • Paul Babb at NAB 2013 <- From Maxon, makers of Cinema 4D
  • Dan May at NAB 2013 <- From Blackmagic Design
  • Dave Newman at NAB 2013 <- From GoPro
  • Sam Bogoch at NAB 2013 <- From Axle (a media management tool)
  • Robbie Fleming at NAB 2013 <- From Editshare (Lightworks)
  • Alexis Van Hurkman at NAB 2013 <- Filmmaker, Colorist, Trainer
  • Patrick Inhofer at NAB 2013 <- From Tao of Color and Mixing Light
  • Ted Schilowitz at NAB 2013 <- From RED
  • Steve Forde at NAB 2013 <- From Adobe
  • Jeff Chow at NAB 2013 <- From Ctrl+Console
  • It was a massive undertaking and we worked our butts off (and still are) but it was quite rewarding.

     

    NAB is always a special time for me, a time to spend what little precious face to face time I can with friends and colleagues from around the world.

    As I grow in the profession and come to know more and more people in it, it’s even that more special to me.

    Please take the time to discover That Post Show and meet the Scruffy.tv crew through their individual Twitter feeds, etc.  These are great souls doing great work.

    What To Do at NAB

    Saturday, April 14th, 2012

    The NAB Show, as I’ve mentioned before, to me, is a must do and see.

    There you can meet with all of your online social network peeps, learn things, see what’s new in products and technology and just be engulfed in tech geek goodness.

    Obviously http://nabshow.com is the place to visit to find out all about what’s there. The NAB Show app is really cool too.

    Here’s a couple NAB Survival Tips blogs:

    http://www.biscardicreative.com/blog/2012/04/tips-for-attending-nab-2012/

    Here’s Walter’s Post Centric “What to See” blog post:
    http://www.biscardicreative.com/blog/2012/04/things-to-see-at-nab-2012/

    Here are a few party list pages, that mostly have the same parties listed:

    A Couple Podcasts with something to say:
    http://t.co/SML3ri1N
    http://scruffythinking.com/thatpostshow/2012/4/8/hold-it-again.html

    As I think I mentioned before, color correction and iPad broadcasting (not necessarily related) are my two main interests this year. I really don’t think there’s going to be too much new to take in (that I’m not already aware of but can’t talk about because of NDA’s, even though the news seems to be breaking all over the place anyway!) for me as far as products go, but I do have a couple “want to buys” on my list.

    As a new iPad owner, I am looking to see what products are out there for it and hopefully see them in action. I am also trying to do as much as I can on it as far as blogging and vlogging from there as well. Yes, we’re going to give you some video this year.

    I plan on buying a couple Go Pro cameras too.

    I plan to get to four main parties.

    As far as I know free NAB show floor pass codes have expired but this page claims to have a link that works. So, give it a try? http://www.fcxuser.com/node/164

    #INKMINIGT*, It All Started With a Movie… and Some Great Friends

    Friday, March 23rd, 2012

    This April will be NAB. This will mark my 4th year of attending. Since my first trip in 2009, I’ve vowed to always return.

    The first year I went, I met so many people, especially ones that I had been communicating with on Twitter, that it was like a reunion of sorts. I went to so many parties and won so many cool prizes. It was really surreal.

    Through the years, I’ve met more people in “the industry” (by that I mean film and TV and post production in general, web included). So, each year the reunion gets bigger. Also, I’ve become more active with each group that I belong to and, as many of you know, I started my own filmmaking group — Independent Filmmakers of the Inland Empire.

    I have devoted countless hours to this passion of mine, like many of you have.

    Last year, while bored, I stumbled upon a movie on Hulu.com, National Lampoon’s Bagboy (2007). In the movie, there are some scenes in an indoor “glow-in-the-dark” golf course. I thought to myself, “Oooh how cool! I want to go to one of those. I wonder where they filmed that?” This lead me to discover that one was being built in Las Vegas and that it would be completed in early 2012. Not only that but also it was going to be KISS themed! I started to put the pieces together immediately, “indoor glow-in-the-dark mini golf”, “KISS-themed”, “early 2012″…. “WHY THAT WILL PROBABLY BE DONE BY NAB!!!”

    My normal NAB schedule includes starting the week off with a Sunday night hang at The Yardhouse with some IMUG** regulars. While this is okay, I thought KISS indoor mini golf would trump the Yardhouse on any night! So, I started hounding the owners of Monster Mini Golf to find out when exactly KISS by Monster Mini Golf would open and what it would take to have a party there.

    The next thing I did was to survey when would be the best night to throw such a party. Claudia Trask was the first to chime in that it had to be either Sunday or Wednesday, so as not to conflict with SuperMeet or MotionMedia Ball. Those happen on Tuesday and Monday respectively.

    One thing to point out is that there are a LOT of events happening each night of NAB and it’s very hard not to step on some other happening. In fact, after I had already started to plan #INKMINIGT and approaching Michael Cioni about a possible sponsorship, he mentioned I should change the day, as there would be an announcement in a couple days and that I would not want to miss it. That happened to be the REDUser party, which, as it turns out, Michael and Light Iron are hosting!

    Well, there really isn’t another night for mine, so I bumped it to later in the night to be accomodating. I, after all, don’t want to miss his either. Now to be honest, Michael’s affair starts at 6 and goes to 11 and that’s a little long for me for a RED User party. I don’t discount that it’ll be great but I think I’ll be RED Usered out by 10 for sure. At which point, I’m hoping that “KISS MINI GOLF!” will wake me up!

    Now, don’t underestimate my “little” get together. We have some BIG things in store. Since it is a “golf” establishment, I’ve decided on a “golf tournament” theme, as it were. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and door prizes and such.

    Having run a very successful film group and with all the friends (as mentioned above), I would say “I have some connections!” So, I am trying very hard to make this a great event.

    It’s not easy. There are a lot of frustrations along the way but for every frustration, there are some great concessions that result. So it should be very “rockin’”!

    I have to give great thanks to the people at KISS by Monster Mini Golf, especially Christina and Nansee! They are the greatest and are helping us make this a fantastic event.

    I want to thank the sponsors who have already committed to helping out as well. These include Blackmagic Design, JAG35, Divergent Media, Focal Press, DV Expo, DigiEffects, ArtBeats and Assisted Editing!

    AssistedEditing.com

    And to That Post Show for constant inspiration!


    The best podcast for post production!

    Special thanks to Liam Johnson and IFIE’s new Adobe Co-manager, Andrew Cohen for helping me travel to Las Vegas this month to check out the grand opening of KISS by Monster Mini Golf and to capture some great footage of the joint.

    While this event is a pilot event and we are already “in development” on next season’s!

    Gearing Up For NAB Show 2012 – Party Time!

    Saturday, January 21st, 2012

    This will be my fourth NAB (in a row). Ever since the first one, I have vowed to attend every one! They are too much fun, especially for a filmmaking gear and tech junkie like myself.

    This time, Independent Filmmakers of the Inland Empire (IFIE), the group I founded, will be throwing a party!

    Planning any type of get together at NAB can be tricky. Upon asking a potential sponsor if they’d like to help, they informed me that, while it was a secret right now, they were going to be announcing a BIG party that same night and I wouldn’t want to miss it…. I’m going forward with mine, just trying for an after-party, more so now.

      So far I am aware of the following parties/events that I consider “must attends”:

    • RED User Party (Sunday, 6-10-ish PM)
    • *IFIE Monster Mini Golf Presents KISS Indoor Mini Golf Tournament (Sunday?)
    • All In Film (on Monday)
    • MediaMotion Ball April 16th Monday <- Tickets available in Feb at http://www.mediamotionball.com/signup.html
    • Supermeet aka FCPUG Network Supermeet (usually on a Tuesday)
    • AJA Party (?)
    • ProMax usually throws a party too…

    I’ll update the list as I find out more. Comment below if your privy to any more or more details… Thanks!
