RECOMMENDED READING - Bring your completed form to the October Meeting! Just take a few minutes and fill in one or two items for the club's "recommended reading list". It could be a book, a magazine, or anything that helped you learn how to improve your movie making abilities. It might be focused on editing or how to get the best out of your camcorder---as long as it helped you , it can help someone else too. We'll put the list into a handout that will not only help existing club members, but will also demonstrate to prospective club members just how membership can be valuable to them.
