Digital Media Artists / Los Angeles (DMA/LA) is a user group for video creatives of all kind. MGLA was formed in August 1997 through the merger of several previously-existing groups. DMA/LA is the next evolution, continuing in 2007-08. DMA/LA’s area of discussions are not restricted to a specific hardware or software solution, understanding that an artist often has to employ multiple tools to realize their vision. We meet to discuss different topics on the third Tuesday of the month.
We are also active members of the Adobe, Peachpit, Focal Press, AREA, Cineversity, and Toolfarm communities.
We have over 4500 email members, 100-300 of which typically attend the monthly meetings (depending on topics) held on the third Tuesday of the month. DMA/LA meetings are held at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre (BGT) in Hollywood. DMA/LA and the LAFCPUG were instrumental in upgrading BGT into a digital-capable cinema; an article on the subject may be found here.
It is volunteer-driven group, with no annual membership fee. Check out the Next Meeting page to see what is coming up next, or the Summaries to get a flavor for past meetings. You can purchase a ticket through Eventbrite.
Please come and share your knowledge and experiences with us. We’re really proud of the professional, supportive environment our members have helped create for motion graphics professionals. We look forward to seeing you!
