SECS RETURNS 2014 TEASER

The Atlanta Cutters Post Production User Group is bringing back the Southeast Creative Summit to Atlanta!   Creative professionals have a dizzying array of tools available today.  Knowing what to do with all those tools to complete a task, create something original, improve on in-house concepts and please your bosses & clients….. that’s the knowledge that puts you ahead of the curve.   That’s what the Southeast Creative Summit is all about.

The Summit is three days of workshops across a wide array of topics presented by actual working professionals in the business.   These people have to meet deadlines, build up new clients, and stay up on the latest industry trends.

After the success of 2013, we are expecting hundreds more creatives to attend this year’s Summit.   This will be an incredible networking, social and knowledge sharing event.   You’ll probably get as much knowledge out of the time you spend with your fellow attendees as you will from each workshop.

REGISTRATION WILL OPEN SOON!

THE ATLANTA CREATIVE BALL 

A new fun event for Atlanta’s Creatives.

On that Saturday night,we are bringing back the Media Event of the Year: The Atlanta Creative Ball!   Last year we brought the “fun of the Media Motion Ball” from Las Vegas to the ATL so we’re going to do it again for 2014!  This will be a great night to relax, enjoy some great food, awesome networking and conversation and probably the largest creative raffle we’ve ever had in this city!   

This will be a casual sit down dinner featuring our many sponsors, a keynote presenter and some special guests.  And yes we said CASUAL, as in “come as you are.”   No formal event here, just come to party and enjoy the presentations.

The Atlanta Creative Ball is a stand-alone-event. Attendance to the summit is not required. Meaning you can purchase a ticket to the Ball without having to come to the Summit….. but why would you want to do that … especially since Summit attendees receive over 50% off admission price.

YOUR HOSTS

ATL Badge

The Atlanta Cutters are Atlanta’s own Post Production User group that encompasses all areas of Post, not just Editorial.  We’re a non-profit organization founded by actual editors and artists in Atlanta in 2011.  The Managing Members are Dan Daube (Turner Studios), Walter Biscardi, Jr. (Biscardi Creative Media), Kris Merkel (Flanders Scientific) and TJ Jaglinski (DCTV23).  We’ve grown from a few dozen folks on our mailing list to over 800 members on the membership roll.  Our monthly meetings have featured a “who’s who” in the industry from people to technology.  We created the Southeast Creative Summit from an idea thrown out at one of our meetings of the type of event all of us would love to attend.   

As a non-profit we’re not in this to make money.  To that end, we hope you’ll appreciate that the pricing for this event is much lower than what we’ve seen for comparable presenters and information.  We just want you to come gain some great insight on your craft, make some new friends and most of all, enjoy your stay in Atlanta.   We look forward to welcoming all of you to our great city!
