Australian Chapter - who's from Australia?


#1

OK guys, seeing that we’re from Australia, we need to setup an Australian chapter with meetings and such. I want to organise a first meeting somewhere (probably Sydney or Melbourne) in June with a massive EXPOSE’ 3 launch, CG prints launch and more. Will also try to get some speakers in.

Who’s from Australia and can potentially either help out or be at an AU meeting?

Hey Leonard, while I’m pretty flat out with work I don’t think there’d be a problem showing up if its in Sydney or Melbourne. So count me in as well.

Whee! Um… yeah.:smiley:

Anyhoo… as an order of general interest to Melbourne (and anyone who wants to fly in!), the Australian Effects and Animation Festival is coming up in June.

Here’s the current sessions:

#14

i can help if its in sydney… when and what are we helping with?


#15

Just a question, is there to be an Australian chapter, or separate chapters for cities/states given there’s an Australian thread, and now sydney and melbourne threads?

Good question. I think that it would depend on the numbers of people. Personally I would have wanted to start up an “Australian” chapter to begin with (all in one) but if there are enough people in each major capital city to warrant it’s own meetings and such, then we’ll split them up.

What do you think?

I think we should have an australian chapter initially - that’d be my preference too. If and when it becomes too unwieldy and unmanageable then maybe we can consider splitting it. my vote is for an australian chapter foremost.

So what’s the plan? How are these chapter thingies going to be ran/organised?

Those are pretty good startup numbers btw. ATM it looks like Sydney could have the first Chapter meeting with those numbers. Do you guys have any suggestions on venues and such?
