The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, September 11.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   Linux At The Movies

   Final Fantasy, Shrek, Pearl Harbor, Titanic, Lord of the Rings, and
   The Matrix. What do all these movies have in common? Linux. Linux was
   used in some way during the production of each movie. Some were
   rendered completely on Linux, some used Linux for specialized tasks.
   This presentation will cover what software is available for the
   budding filmmaker running Linux. And we will answer the question: "Can
   you make a movie entirely under Linux?"

   Shawn Wallbridge is the Systems Administrator at Frantic Films, one of
   Canada's leading Visual Effects studios. Shawn has covered network
   security topics under Linux at previous MUUG meetings, and returns for
   the September meeting with what should be a visually interesting
   presentation. So, we'll see you... At The Movies!

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30 PM on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note our meeting location:  IBM Canada's offices in the TD
   Centre, at the corner of Portage and Main. We gather in the lobby on
   the main floor - please try to be there by about 7:15 PM. Steve Moffat
   will then take us up to the meeting room just before the meeting
   starts at 7:30. Don't be late, or you may not get in.

   Parking is available either in the parkade behind the TD building,
   off Albert Street, or in the ground level lot just north of the TD
   building. Entrance to the lot is from Albert Street, behind the
   parkade. Either way, parking is a $1.25 flat rate for the evening.
   You purchase your ticket from a dispenser, so make sure you've got
   exact change - a loonie and a quarter, or 5 quarters.
