Re: Club Publicity - ideas wanted

With respect I think you narrowed the potential membership field by appealing to people who already make videos...etc Yes it was aimed at people with cameras, Ned. I think we see one of the main benefits of the a club is showing your work to others and giving and receiving feedback. We are trying t...

Re: Club Publicity - ideas wanted

That must have been really dissapointing. What would you do differently next time? Which club are you from? do you have a website? Staines Ciné & Video Society (changing to Staines Video Makers come September). Our website http://www.stainesvideo.co.uk was shortlisted in the IAC website competition...

Re: Chippenham Club web site

A nice introduction, at what I'd imagine the exactly the right pace and pitched at the right level for the average club member new to sound. What I particularly liked was the emphasis on ensuring the mic is switched on and using headphones to monitor. This was clearly born from experience - a mistak...

Thanks Col. That at least gives me an idea of the sort of cost we might be looking at.

Re: "muting" HDMI signals

Thanks for the suggestions gents and the kind words from you Michael. Whilst the 2.5K unit is a comparitively good price, I'm not sure members woyld consider this good use of our limited funds.

Re: "muting" HDMI signals

Since your projector is some distance from the operators such mechanical devices might need to be triggered by long pieces of string (!) or simple low-voltage motors and cables. Indeed the distance is the problem. However your suggestions prompt me to consider a contraption with pulleys and levers ...

Re: Club Publicity - ideas wanted

I know at least one club offering a film competition with prize of £50 plus a year's free membership to video makers in their area who work at present without the help of professionals or a video making club. That would be us, Dave. We launched it in November with a closing date (for entries - the ...

Re: Am I allowed to use that song?

It would ridiculous if they had to ask permission for it or if they had to pay for it. Why would that be ridiculous? Suppose someone wanted to use a bit of one of your films in the backgrund of one of theirs. I'm sure you'd be delighted. But I'm equally sure you'd either like to be asked or to have...

I post here in "just in case". I'm talking here about our projection setup. In the days of MiniDV, we took two signal outs - one w...
