The Video Club turns 30 years old in 2019, and we’re planning to celebrate with a 30th Anniversary Open House for our General Meeting on Thursday, January 17, at 6:30 pm in the Video Lab and Studio. Open free to all members as well as residents and their guests.
We hope to have a couple of big surprises to share – a major upgrade to our club facilities and a peek at the Video Club’s first-ever dramatic video production. No promises at this point – but stay tuned!
Here’s what we’re currently planning…
- We’ll demonstrate fast and easy ways you can use your smartphone to make videos.
- We’ll have our new 2019 Winter-Spring Class Schedule available with some of our instructors on hand to provide previews of upcoming classes.
- We’ll have the Video Studio’s green screen set in operation so that guests will be able to see themselves sitting behind a TV news desk or in other imaginary (but very real -looking) settings.
- On our second Video Studio set, we’ll demonstrate the shooting techniques that enable our Video One Productions members to produce shows regularly seen on Village Television, including Dr. Tom Nash’s “Laguna Woods Stories” and Suzanne Savlov’s “Welcome to My Home.”
- We’ll demonstrate how to print attractive labels directly onto CDs or DVDs. The Video Club now has two special printers for this task.
- We’ll demonstrate our growing collection of equipment for converting vintage media (35mm slides, VHS tapes, etc.) into modern digital formats in our Marvin Green Memorial Capture Center, named in honor of a beloved Past-President of the Video Club.
