Videogram ALERT, June 19 2016
NOTE: The next monthly Videogram will be published in September.
Audience Needed for TV Taping on Tuesday
Message from PHIL DORAN:
Do you have a great laugh? How about one that's raucous, infectious, or mellifluous? Whatever laugh you have, please bring it to the Channel 6 Studio this Tuesday at 1 pm to be in the audience for the taping of Never Too Late to Date.
We have great contestants and both The Bachelor and The Three Bachelorettes are 90 years old! That's right, if you totaled up all their ages they'd be older than America.
Come join us!
Update on Video Club President Steve Carman
Message from JOAN CARMAN, June 19:
"We are hoping to air ambulance Steve to Kaiser in California today or tomorrow. He is doing better but will have a slow recovery. He is very appreciative of all of you for covering Video Club business."
Steve recently sustained serious neck injuries in a shipboard fall while he and his wife Joan (our club Secretary) were on an Alaskan cruise. Since then, Steve has been receiving treatment in a Seattle hospital.
Joan, WE are very appreciative of all you and Steve have done for our club, and our thoughts and prayers remain with you both!
New "Audio Post-Production" Class Starts Wednesday
Poor sound has ruined many an otherwise excellent video. Can anything be done about it? "Yes!" says Dr. Tom Nash. "We're not promising miracles, but there are some solutions."
Even if you're just beginning to learn video editing, you'll benefit from Tom's new course in “Audio Post Production,” starting this Wednesday. The two-session class will meet June 22 and 29 from 10 am-noon in the Video Lab. Cost is $5 per session and pre-registration is not required. Topics will include reducing unwanted background noise and improving “mushy” sound, as well as using music and sound effects to enhance your soundtrack. For more info, contact Tom at firstname.lastname@example.org, 714 381-0781.
Video One to Help Members Produce TV Programs and Videos
Have a great idea for a TV show or video, but don’t know how to develop it? Check out Video One, a new group for Video Club members, where show business and video professionals like Phil Doran and Dr. Tom Nash will guide you in shaping, crafting, casting, and producing your program – possibly to air on Channel 6. Phil, a retired TV writer and producer of the Village's TV game show “Never Too Late to Date,” heads the group. Tom, our club Vice President and chair of the Education Committee, taught video production for 30 years at Biola University.
Video One is an outgrowth of a four-week class Tom taught this spring in “Multi-Camera Studio Production.” Participants learned to operate the club's new video switcher for live editing of multi-camera shoots, and a group from the class has continued to meet to hone their production skills. The class will be repeated this fall. Plan to enroll if you're interested in video production for your own projects or those of others!
Through Video One, you'll be able to develop your ideas with production assistance from fellow club members. This “help others to help yourself” concept is necessary because Video Studio shoots require crews skilled in camera and switcher operation, directing, audio, and lighting. If you're interested, call Phil for more information at 949-421-9788.
