Let's party - this Friday! February 24th, at 7pm

"Digital Alchemy," Boulder Digital Art's 2nd Anniversary party, co-presented by Unspoken Word, will be held this Friday evening, February 24th, at 7pm at the BDA Studio in Boulder! The free party will feature roving cameras, a digital photo booth, VJ "SLP" and DJ Rootz from Alpine Audio Visual and live creation of “Digital Alchemy” by attendees. In addition, co-presenter Unspoken Word will be displaying members' artwork in the studio's birds-eye lounge above the action. Interact with digital videographers, photographers and musicmakers to create your own instant contribution to the Digital Alchemy for all to experience! We're happy to have as co-sponsors of Digital Alchemy: Boulder Beer, Whole Foods, Thomas Howard Imaging, and Alpine Audio Visual; as well as our Media Sponsor for the event, the Boulder County Business Report!

And don't forget our new Fast Filmmaking Incubator! If you're a director, writer, actor, key grip, set designer, audio tech, make-up artist, camera operator - you know you’ve always wanted to make your own films - now’s your chance! The first meeting is March 8th - you can collaborate with others in the group, or strike out on your own. BDA's new Fast Filmmaking Incubator provides the motivation and structure needed to give birth to your creative ideas. You’ll learn by doing—with the support and encouragement of others. Fast Filmmaking Incubator is for anyone interested in filmmaking — whatever your skill level. Joining the Fast Filmmaking Incubator commits you to making films. The aim is to push you to create by imposing a deadline and a little peer pressure; with it, you’ll gain the hands-on experience of making films in a collaborative community of film people who are there to inspire and support you. Meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. Attend your first monthly meeting for orientation, introductions, and to brainstorm ideas into projects. Films just completed by members will be screened followed by Q & A, as well as lively and informative discussions on the art and technical aspects of filmmaking. From time to time industry experts will be invited to meetings to speak. And of course, there'll be snacks! Sign up here!
