TIVA-DC meetings -- Our region’s best resource for sharing production knowledge.

A recent TIVA Meeting at Interface Video.

From writing to lighting, animation to digital compression, and all points in between, TIVA meetings have a heritage of being interesting, involving, and a great investment. We continually bring you the region’s top producers, shooters, and graphic artists to present tried and true techniques you can use on your next production.

You can be a part of this exciting endeavor. Send your meeting ideas/wishes to meetings@tivadc.org and we’ll work to put your topic on the schedule.
