When & Where
ProductionCONN is a dynamic enterprise dedicated to providing inspired events and workshop programs for the digital media, broadcast, and filmmaking community. ProductionCONN made its debut in 2011 with a two-day industry trade show in Greater Hartford, presented in association with Manhattan Edit Workshop and presenting sponsor AJA Video Systems. The event also featured partnerships with SMPTE and Createasphere (formerly HD Expo).
PCONN was founded by Keith Larsen, creator of Digital CONNtent Creators (formerly the Connecticut Final Cut Pro User Group), the first and only digital desktop video and cinema post-production user group based in Connecticut. DCC was established to build professional connections between editors, motion graphics artists, independent filmmakers, students, and video professionals who embrace the digital desktop media revolution. At the close of its 8th year, DCC boasted over 500 members reflecting the diverse production community across the Northeast. In addition to remaining part of the Final Cut Pro User Group Network (FCPUG), DCC took pride in also being an equally interactive forum for users of Avid, Adobe, Media 100 and more.
