Randy Ubillos, the former Apple Chief Architect on Final Cut Pro and Final Cut Pro X, is scheduled to appear at the Los Angeles Creative Pro User Group (lacpug) on Wednesday, May 27, at the Gallery Theatre in Hollywood beginning at 6:45 p.m.

This will be the first public appearance for Ubillos in four years. He recently retired from Apple after 20 years. In that time he was chief architect on a wide range of products such as Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Pro X, Aperture, iMovie ’08 through ’11 and iPhoto for iOS. In addition, he also created versions 1 through 4.2 of Adobe Premiere Pro.

“We are so honored to have Randy appear at lacpug,” says Michael Horton, the current head of lacpug. “Randy is too humble to admit this, but he fundamentally  changed the way we all tell visual stories. He changed the world’s Post Production industry. Entire industries have grown up around what he has created. He has had a heck of a career and we are very grateful he has accepted our invitation.”

Ubillos will speak about his own moviemaking experiences and the power of video to inspire and document our lives. He will also provide tips and tricks for making your own movies.

In addition, Matt Geller will will be launched the West Coast debut of KeyFlow Pro, available this summer in the Mac App Store. KeyFlow Pro allows small collaborative groups to organize, process and share media over small networks without the use of shared storage or costly infrastructure.

Also, actress and filmmaker Mare Costello will be showing clips from her recently completed feature “The Syriana Tate Interview,” as well as discussing what it was like editing her first full length non-scripted comedy while producing, directing and performing the main character.

The doors to the Gallery Theatre will open at 6 p.m. for networking. Then a Q&A session called “Stump The Gurus” featuring Monica Daniel, Kylee Wall, Adam Bedford and Randy Ubillos will begin at 6:45 p.m.

Registration for this event is free, but you will be asked for a donation of US$5at the door. For more information as well as a link to where to register, go to the lacpug web site (http://www.lafcpug.org).
