"It's difficult to describe these types of gatherings to the uninitiated because there free form nature allows them to morph. I had a great time on Saturday in spite of (or because of) I didn't know most of the guys there. The topics I personally discussed ranged from the techniques of photographing fight scenes to critiques of Hayao Miyazaki's work to the very nature of objective reality; good stuff!"Mike Location Sound
