Videogram ALERT, October 28, 2015

  • November 2 Project Day Presentations Announced

  • Annual Short Video Contest Deadline Is January 8, 2016

Varied Presentations Announced for November 2 Project Day

A look at the Village's newest sport and a peek into some "warped" video humor will be combined with two "how-to" presentations (one, a VERY cautionary tale!) to make up the next Project Day on Monday, November 2, 2015, from 1-3 pm in the Video Lab. The public is invited to attend these free monthly sessions, when club members share new work and work in progress. Be there to learn and share!

As the result of some three years of tough campaigning, archery is finally being added to the list of Village athletic activities. One of the key figures behind this progress was club member Gordon Richiusa, who will present his video, "The Archery Club," about the Village's new archery program.

Longtime member and resident Pinnacle and YouTube instructor Chuck Hale will show some of his funniest short videos in a program titled "The Warped Sense of Humor of Chuck Hale." Laugh along with Chuck!

Audio problems can often prevent an otherwise good video from succeeding. Vice President Tom Nash, who heads our Learning Opportunities Committee, will address these situations in a his presentation,"Fixing Sound Problems."

Member Peggy Edwards faced even more serious problems with back-lit,silhouetted video clips of eight speakers taken during a recent program sponsored by the Village Publishing Club, which she founded and heads. Because the speakers had been promised a video of their performances, Peggy worked for several weeks with Thursday Lab Supervisor Lucy Parker to edit what originally appeared to be unusable footage. Their presentation, "What to Do When Your Video Footage Is A Disaster," will tell the tale.

For more information about Project Day, or to be scheduled as a presenter, contact Steve Carman,, 424-254-6583. And, BTW, Steve is looking for a Project Day Coordinator -- a fun job which helps members grow and share their video skills. Give Steve and call to find out more about this important position!
