Join Us at our June Meeting

Our June meeting will be held Thursday, June 21, 2018 at 7:00pm at the Wyndham Hotel in the Grill Breakfast room. The Wyndham is located at 700 E Adams Street in downtown Springfield, IL. Free parking is available on the street. Paid parking is available in the parking garage attached to the Wyndham. Our meetings are free and open to the public.

Our June program will feature Dean Williams, Hollywood still photographer, discussing Film-making in the Digital Age.  Dean’s presentations are always interesting as well as informative having worked in the Hollywood film-making industry for over 30 years.  This will be an opportunity to see some of the technology and tools that you may have only heard about.

Hope to see you there!

Dean Williams is a still photographer and has worked on over 165 major motion pictures and TV shows during his Hollywood career.  Some of the more famous films he’s worked on include Caddyshack, Blues Brothers, Poltergeist and Rocky.  Dean has seen the conversion from film to digital cameras in the industry.  In the early days of post-production for his photos, Dean explains that cut and paste would actually involve using scissors.  He’s a wealth of information in the film industry and is always happy to share his experiences.

He is also the original founder of the Central Illinois Film Commission and is still very active in CIFC events.
