    Well..... It's that time of the year again!


    Five years ago (almost to the day) I posted this here.



    "Ron,

    When can we expect the next HTF Big Meet? Is anything on the horizon?

    Inquiring minds want to know....

    Take care,

    Raul"


    Then in 2012 we had that GREAT Hollywood meet.


    You think the studios have recovered from us yet? :)

    Raul,


    The likelihood of having one this year is quite good, though we were

    originally waiting until 2017 for our 20th Anniversary.


    The model in which we are proposing to do this meet is still being

    discussed. If we decide to go ahead with the proposal you guys will

    know about it soon.


    No guarantees, however.

    That's very encouraging Ron =) If one is a go I hope to make it out there again!

    Thanks for the info Ron.


    As always you can count on me to be one of the "official" HTF meet photographers together with Sam and Patrick.


    Take care,


    Raul

    Next year might work better for me, but don't change things on my account. :)

    I've been thinking for a while of this idea....


    At the next HTF meet have a workshop with either (or both) "Spears and Munsil" and "Joe Kane" on the basics of monitor calibration. How to do a basic one and/or what to expect when you hire a professional (like those with ISF training [which a lot of us have no access to due to geography]). I have a feeling that a lot of us would be interested in such a workshop, for maybe 1/2 a day, before or after the actual meet and with a surcharge if needed.


    Just a thought.....

    I agree. A calibration how to would be most useful but I would hope it would include projectors.

    I have to send early regrets before we even get cooking here, sorry guys. Just committed to a 12 day trip to Alaska as my parents chaperone and baggage wrangler, so even if the dates line up my vacation days and spare funds will be depleted. See ya on the next one!

    A meet without Sam? It won't be the same!

    Kind of you to say Russel, I am definitely disappointed. But at least it provides you all with an opportunity to talk about what a nutter I am behind my back =)

    When my brother lived in LA, he took us to the Getty Center and Huntington Library and now I recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

    At our last meet, Paula and I got tickets for a live taping of Two and A Half Men (it was still a good show at that time). It seemed that several people liked the idea of going to a live taping. Maybe this could be considered, but it does require trying several weeks in advance if not a couple of months in advance.

    On the meet before that one we went to live tapings of Jimmy Kimmel and Real Time with Bill Maher. They were both a lot of fun.

    Live tapings would be great.

    I remember the Jimmy Kimmel taping. That was fun. Several of us were on TV during the Julianne Hough performance.

    I'm over the live taping experience as far as talk shows go, since the audience is just there to fill seats (and the pretty people get front row) and laugh and clap on cue. I'd be more interested in a sitcom recording. It may amount to the same thing, but I wouldn't have the expectation of the cast actually talking to he audience.
