Bulletin Vol 65 No 8


O'Reilly Digital Video

DATE      Tuesday, May 30, 2006

PLACE    Cadboro Bay United Church, 2625 Arbutus Road, The Lounge

TIME       7:00 p.m.



Peter Bruce, a professional photographer, will be speaking to the club about aspects of photography that also have implications for making better video. Peter operates a business that looks to build strength and social purpose in the community and he will be showing a video called "Celebrate What's Right with the World" (22 min) that is very motivating and "...teaches what a powerful force having a vision of possibilities can be for you."

Following the break there will be:

  • discussion about the election of club officers for the June meeting,
  • viewing of the entries for the club's Assigned Subject contest, and then
  • more movies from the club's AMPS and AMMA collection of productions.

There will be another picnic sometime during the last two weeks of August at Margaret's second trailer site at the Beachcomber RV Park on 3290 Campion Road, Saanichton (near Victoria). More details on that later.
