LAPPG to Hold Next Meeting at DV Expo 2013 with Focus on Mobile Filmmaking


lappgLos Angeles, CASeptember 20, 2013 — The Los Angeles Post Production Group (LAPPG), a leading post production professional organization and networking group, today announced it will feature Mobile Filmmaking with a special focus on filmmaking with the Apple iPad at their next meeting being held at the DV Expo on September 25th, 2013 at 6pm at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

For the past five years, the LAPPG has been on the forefront of discovering and sharing the developments, technologies and trends that most impact its community of digital media artists. Witness to the digital democratization of filmmaking and its hold on the community, the Group has chosen to highlight some pioneers in the field of iPad filmmaking as well as feature a stock footage company whose paradigm allows for anyone to submit their footage for consideration.

From the production world, media guru Dave Basulto will be introducing his new invention for mobile filmmaking, the iOgrapher. The iOgrapher’s unique design features two handles on each side of the case, making the iPad mini a hand-held ‘steadicam rig,’ eliminating shaky footage common when shooting video with mobile devices. The iOgrapher is also designed to enable consumers and filmmakers alike to easily add 37mm lenses to its lens mount area for wide angles, fisheye looks, or to capture macro or close up shots. Users can attach lighting and audio gear to its three accessory shoes on the top of the case. The bottom of the case is designed to allow mounting the iPad Mini to any standard tripod, monopod, or portable dolly. Basulto, also a high school teacher of media arts in Southern California, was inspired by his students to create the iOgrapher. He will be on hand to share his story during the event.

On the post production side, the LAPPG has invited back Jon Favreau’s go-to editor Dan Lebental, A.C.E. (Iron Man, Elf, Cowboys & Aliens, Thor: The Dark World) to share updates on his game-changing creation, TouchEdit, the NLE app for the iPad he developed with partner Lumi Docan and released in early 2013.

In line with bringing filmmaking to the people, Director of Video Acquisition, Tom Spota from Shutterstock will share his expertise on how the business of stock footage has changed and what new opportunities have been created.  He will focus on what type of stock footage content is in demand, shooting strategies, and what one needs to do to get started in the business.

The meeting is free and open to all DV Expo attendees. Visit for more information and to register.
