Video One Productions, the Video Club’s special interest group devoted to team-based video production, will meet on Friday, February 14, at 1 pm in the Video Studio Control Room to plan and coordinate current projects and to review members’ work in progress.
Included will be an editing progress report on the team’s second dramatic film, “What? You, Too?” — which is set to premiere March 19 at a Video Club Open House.
Under a new plan where VidOne members volunteer to run monthly meetings, Tom Nash will be in charge on Valentine’s Day. Tom also manages the VidOne member contact list, making him the “go-to-guy” for questions about Video One Productions. Contact Tom at email@example.com, 714 381-0781.
Visitors are welcome to attend the February 14 meeting, but club membership is required for full VidOne participation.
NEW CAMCORDERS FOR REMOTE SHOOTS
Funds from the Golden Rain Foundation for 2020 have provided the Video Studio with two more Canon G21 full HD camcorders like the one Tom Nash examines at right, which was purchased last year with funds from the Video Club’s 30th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign. The new camcorder gives the Video Studio a full compliment of three G21s for use in remote shoots. In the past, the three Studio camcorders had to be disconnected and moved for remote shoots, leaving the Studio without cameras until they were returned. Other GRF 2020 purchases included two new PC computers and three iPads for instructional use in the Video Lab.
A big “THANK YOU!” to GRF for helping us carry out our mission!
“BEYOND THE GATES” SEEKS SEGMENT PRODUCERS,
WILL HOLD PLANNING MEETING FEBRUARY 13
A planning meeting for Video One Productions’ newest monthly half-hour TV series, “Beyond the Gates,” will be held on Thursday, February 13, at 1 pm in the Video Studio. Suzanne Savlov is Producer and Tom Nash is Executive Producer of the new show, which invites viewers to explore places-to-go and things-to-do outside the Village.
Jack Crawbuck will handle photography, using “Huell Howser-style,” one-camera technique. Bill Hemberger and Susan Wheeler will serve as segment hosts, using hand-held mics to interview subjects. The first segment may be shot later this month.
Suzanne explains that “Beyond the Gates” will normally consist of three segments, or visits to local places-of-interest, including one restaurant. Segment producers are needed to arrange these shoots, she says. If you’re interested in becoming a segment producer, please contact Suzanne at firstname.lastname@example.org. Suzanne also produces Video One’s popular “Welcome to My Home” series for Village TV.
