Re: Looking Forward.

Dave, I do not upset colleagues who I deal with. Only people who I been associated with on the trip on the Titanic in a manner of speaking.
Never Say Never was a good title for Sean Connery who re-made "Thunderball" and sorry to say lost money at the Box-Office. :D

Re: Looking Forward.

Thank You Ned, I felt a bit silly asking that question. But you have put it over nicely. Sorry to say here in England many clubs rely on advertising and the odd public function in having stands or stalls. I live in Trowbrige and our council tries very hard in organising events for the local communit...

Re: Looking Forward.

Tim at present I have been in a negative mood regards video club. For a long time I have enjoyed the freedom of working with independent video makers and on my own. Out of the blue I got a request to help as this person has seen my work and ideas. To help them out as he could see them sliding down t...

Re: Looking Forward.

I'm not into the IAC set up regards awards etc. In the end of the day any video maker in the amateur status. Any work he produces, his main aim is to get his work shown. Most know that their work is not up to standard through lack of knowledge and experience. Most of the material ends up on YouTube ...

Re: Attracting New Members

Peter I wish you all the luck with your task. Even meeting monthly is telling us how times have altered. Those clubs which meet still weekly or every 2 weeks are doing fine by attracting the members who have been with the club for years. When you start editing your old material you will say to yours...

old timers

As we get older and wiser plus still working on or in the amateur state of making films with video clubs or working on our own. We see the world from a different perspective. Many articles in the IAC are written or material is contributed from people who have the knowledge. But how many people are i...

Re: Attracting New Members

Col, I left the club in November for being outspoken. Like a new bottle of wine, needed to let it mature.

Re: Video Clubs and Future?

Every club in the country has different set ups and work under the same umbrella. Meetings some weekly some every 2 weeks and once a month. How can the IAC help??????????? The future with clubs need to address the motto... To Be Seen and Heard. Also stop making certain videos which are bad for a clu...

Re: Video Clubs and Future?

Firstly Col, how many members in the season attend the meetings per session? Also how many members do you have?. For the last six months I have been studying the video club situation. Some clubs have a healthy membership and some clubs have a skeleton membership. As request I joined a video club of ...

Re: Video Clubs and Future?

This topic seems to go along in stages. Reading all the posts and me being negative is the opposite. I'm outspoken and I see things as they are. I have no interest in being in a club and taking over any post in the club. My main aim is to support new ideas. Get the club members moving from the const...

The main thing is John as long as you like the video, that is fine. Now that you have had all the feedback. Try again.

Re: Heritage Day 2013

Well John seen your video and I can see you are struggling and surprised no person has replied. Would you like to re-shoot the video with some write details? If yes here are some pointers for this and future projects. 1. Firstly dont use well known bland music. 2. Commentary must sound the same. Two...

Re: Sound levels

Hi John- Thanks for your reply. My post is not for people who have a good understanding of sound. Many people who have computers and only play around with video would not dream of balancing or edit sound. As long it plays on a DVD after editing and a nice well known musical tune, "That Will Do". The...
