In her excellent General Meeting program, “Music, Memories & Motivation, presented via Zoom on November 19, club Secretary and Apple instructor Stephanie Brasher challenged club members — and anyone else interested — to create videos inspired by music of the baby boomer era. See her list of suggested songs below.

Sharing a powerful range of both professional and “do-it-yourself” music videos, Stephanie placed special emphasis on personal and family memories recalled by the familiar songs. “All these family albums that need to be organized — and our children don’t want them. Put them in a four-minute video,” she suggested, adding, “Three to four minutes is a good length for a video. Let your imagination soar!”

Stephanie went on to explain how the Video Club Challenge will work:

If your video is four minutes or less, Video Club, members can submit their video for the club’s annual 2021 Goldies Short Video Contest. The entry deadline is February 1, 2021. Click here  to view and/or download Goldies contest details.

If your video is longer than four minutes or you do not want to enter the contest, you can submit your video for consideration to be shown on the club’s monthly Village Television show “The Video Club Spotlight.” seen Sundays at 4 pm. 

If enough entries are received, the Club will host a special Zoom meeting to share your creative efforts — and we can all enjoy your video.
