Next Boston Makers Meeting, SUNDAY, November 2, 2014

This month’s meeting was one of the greatest of all time. I’ve never had so many people come up to me at the end of the meeting, thanking me for putting on such a good meeting.

At the end of the day, it’s all about the people who attend, and this month, we just had a lot of great people with interesting stories to share.

Make sure you join us next month. It’s always on the first Sunday.

Here’s a video roll call of all the attendees.

SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER: Barry Dennis of Hunt’s Photo

Barry Dennis of Hunt’s Photo and Video will be talked about audio for podcasting and video. He did a show and tell on the Zoom H6 audio recorder that’s great for a podcaster or filmmaker and the most versatile and middle of the road price wise.


Barry Dennis has a long history in Video dating back to the mid 80’s shooting on SVHS and editing on AG-1960 VCR’s. Dennis spent the bulk of his career at Hunt’s Photo and Video but has been out in Los Angeles for the last seven years. He’s back now and the Pro/Broadcast/Cine liaison for Hunt’s. His focus is on building relationships with filmmakers, event videographers, access studios and people in the arts industry in general.

Join us next month as we continue of our 9th year!

Read about our last meeting in this great Jamaica Plain news article by Chris Helms.


Boston Media Makers is a monthly meet-up for media enthusiasts in the Greater Boston Area. We are social media enthusiasts, filmmakers, journalists, web geeks, technologists, designers, artists, entrepreneurs, and people just wanting to learn more about making and distributing media online. Come talk shop and share current projects. The guest presenter is YOU. Everyone gets three minutes to share, pitch, promote, or ask questions. We learn, get inspired, and collaborate. Hosted by Steve Garfield.


We gather around a big table and answer the questions:

– What are you doing?

– What do want to do?

– Do you need some help?

– You can ask questions too.

– Come with a prepared show and tell if you like.

GROUP DESCRIPTION: Everyone is welcome!
This meeting started out with people who were working with audio and video on the web but over the years it has expanded to include podcasters, video bloggers, filmmakers, artists, actors, musicians, writers, programmers, news reporters, PR and social media people. We help people GET SEEN. 😉

The BEST thing about this meeting is that everyone who attends, gets to meet everyone else.

I love how it has expanded. Every month is a new experience with both returning friends and new attendees.
