This Week in Media Events: NMFO, NMAUG, IGDA

Hey everyone...

The big event this week is the NM Filmmakers Conference and First Vision Forum running Thursday through Saturday at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Albuquerque (I'm also including info on an Adobe Users Group event and one for NM game developers below).  Combining the already successful Filmmakers Conference and First Vision forum events, this year's looks to be their best yet. 

For more information on the conference visit:
Conference Schedule is available here:

Nearly all the spaces are full for this free event, so if you've registered and your plans have changed, please let the NM Film Office know which sessions you can't attend -- so someone else will have a chance to attend.

More updates as they come!

NM Adobe Users Group: Flash and After Effects Together

WHEN: Wednesday, March 26, from noon-1:15pm

WHERE: UNM Continuing Education in the South Building, Room 220

PRESENTER: Elaine Montoya

DESCRIPTION: Learn how Flash and After Effects can be used together to create in ways that would be complex with either tool alone. In this session we will take a look at creating 'Hollywood style' text animation effects, and then bring them into your Flash project for use on the web. Then we will flip-it. Learn how to add 'post' effects to your Flash animations in After Effects to add richness, and a broadcast quality finish to your project.

This session takes place, Wednesday, March 26, from noon-1:15pm at UNM Continuing Education, Room 220 in the South Building. It will be taught by AdobeQuerque Community Expert, Elaine Montoya.

COST: NMAUG members can attend all of the AdobeQuerque Expert Series brown-bag sessions for FREE. The cost is $19 per session for non-members.
