Giving Back: Upcoming Events in Toronto and Santa Monica

“When you work hard and have done well and walk through that doorway of opportunity, you do not slam it shut behind you. No, you reach back and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed.” – Michelle Obama
From Lydia Hurlbut:

We’ve talked about it here on the Hurlblog before. Shane and I and our entire team make it a priority to give back to filmmakers, our local communities, and others worldwide who may benefit from our time and expertise. Shane feels like it is his responsibility to try to inspire and educate other filmmakers with the knowledge base and expertise acquired during his career – not when he retires, but right now, while he is pioneering these new technologies.

The next big project is shooting a new DreamWorks feature, Need for Speed. Because of the timing, this means that we will not be able to run a Hurlbut Visuals Bootcamp this year. Instead, we will continue to offer content rich posts and answers to comments on the blog, and when possible, Shane will do speaking gigs like the upcoming appearance in conjunction with the Toronto International Film Festival. This event is from 7:00 to 10:00pm on Saturday, September 15th, including showing the power of the Canon 5D MK III, C300 and never before seen C500 4K footage. This will help keep you current and increase your speed.

We hope to see you in Toronto for this free event about turning Canon cameras into movie making machines. There will be door prizes of a Master Cinema Series Action Cam from Letus Corporation and a free 3-Day Rental on a $5K Camera Package from Revolution Cinema Rentals. (Restrictions apply. Shipping not included.) You can register here for the event.

Shane and I will also be attending the “Gotta Give” fundraiser for “In True Fashion” on Thursday, September 20th in Santa Monica, California. In True Fashion, founded by Nancy Gale, is a competition-based entrepreneurial program that builds self-esteem and work ethic in low-income students through hands-on participation. Our team will be filming the event, and we continue to devote time and gear to this great organization. Both Shane and I will be serving as in-class mentors as well. Click here to purchase tickets for the fundraiser.

Hope to see you in Toronto, Santa Monica and here on the blog.
