The Video Club Board decided at their August 1 meeting to hold Short Film Showcases quarterly. After Monday's event, the next Short Film Showcase will be on Monday, November 4.


Video Studio Work Day Tuesday

To continue organizing the Studio...
Tuesday, August 6, 2019, 1-3 pm
and we’ll need YOUR help!

To volunteer, please email Tom Nash at

Here are some photos from our first Work Day on Monday, July 22, when about a dozen members turned out enthusiastically to clean and organize.

And here's what our green-screen set looks like with new (donated) lighting that will light only the background and not the subjects, improving color-key separation. Tom Nash admires the handiwork.

Special thanks go to Tom Nash, Jack Crawbuck, and Jim Rohrs for major help with our many summer improvements in the Video Studio.

NOTICE!! New Studio furniture is coming soon with the completion of our 30th Anniversary Fund Raising Campaign!
