CTFCPUG'S New Name!
In August of 2007, CTFCPUG will begin its 5th year in operation and we feel that it is time for a change. We have a very diverse production community here in Connecticut and its time to reflect that. The name CTFCPUG initially was adopted to become part of the FCPUGNetwork of more than 100+ FCPUG’s world-wide. The name enabled us to gather sponsors and resources that otherwise would have been unobtainable under any other name. However, by using Final Cut Pro exclusively in our group name, we have seemed to alienate a large number of the production community here in the Nutmeg State. Those of you who attend know this to be the contrary as we routinely delve into the world of all forms of production, new media and distribution, and cover ALL of the digital tools that make creativity flow. Hence, its time for a name change and let the rest of the production scene here in Connecticut realize what we’re doing. The mission will remain, the raffle, the member show & tell, and great guests will continue to pour in, but we want to involve more of the creative folk who assume that CTFCPUG is a Final Cut User ONLY organization. Thanks for 4 years of solid support and we look forward to a new start in 2007-2008 as the new DIGITAL CONTENT CREATORS of CONNECTICUT. A new website will be forthcoming and the first meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, September 18, 2007 at 6pm. See you then!
