The Club is available to video community events and entertainment in the local area. Why not have your community activity recorded and available on DVD or on-line? Contact us for details. We welcome new members interested in getting started in video, or in improving their existing skills.  All levels of experience are encouraged to participate. The Club actively participates in inter-club as well as intra-club competitions designed to improve member’s video skills. These are a great way to enjoy the art of video-making, as well as work toward improved knowledge and skill. At our meetings we run regular workshops on all aspects of video production: camera technique, audio, editing etc. These are an invaluable tool for improving skill levels.

Our June meeting included a workshop from member John Baker emphasising the importance of manually fixing each and every segment of your edit. As each camera, lens and lighting situation is different, you can ‘sell yourself short’ by not trying to achieve a consistent balance throughout your film.  Whilst this can be time consuming, it can also be rewarding. Many thanks to John for not only a thorough explanation, backed up by terrific examples, but he took time out from his 70th Birthday Celebrations to be with us on the day. Bob Antill COMBINED CLUB MEETING JUNE 5TH 2021 Two ordinary blokes standing in the Ulladulla Bowling Club with amazing stories to tell to a room full of sponges absorbing each and every word spoken. It is not often that amateur film makers have the opportunity to meet and learn from professionals, but last Saturday, June 5th, the combined Videography Clubs of Wollongong, Shoalhaven and Milton Ulladulla were privileged to have two outstanding Australian professional videographers as guest speakers.  Glenn Hanns took us on a journey that covered his early years in film making through to movies that he has just completed and are about to be released. Fascinating and inspiring, mixed with tales of tight schedules, bogged in the desert and some tricks of the trade. Anthony ‘Ash’ Brennan brought his skills to a very personal documentary on the devastating bush fires that attacked Conjola on December 31st 2019. Ash was on assignment in Perth and saw a reporter, standing in front of what was left of his house, trying to explain what had happened to the town.  The story of that day needed to be told in the words of those who lived it and Ash brought his skills and local knowledge to create an excellently crafted documentary which is currently winning awards all over the world. The journey, warts and all, the financial costs, struggles for funding and the hope for a full release through the movie theatres helped the assembled members understand how complex it is to make films commercially. For some members of our Milton Ulladulla Club, it was sobering to know that our assistance with Ash’s film saw our names in the credits of a film that has just shown in New York. After lunch we got down to the serious business of showing our ‘Grumpy’ films in the Club Challenge. Much relief, as the guest speakers had gone!!! Next combined meeting the theme is ‘Brush’…. Something to get your teeth around! A well-attended, very informative and inspiring meeting left us all looking forwarded to the next interclub gathering.

YOU CAN’T STOP PROGRESS! After three fulfilling years participating in club activities, John B is relocating to Crookwell with Rhonda and their little flock of goats at the end of September. He’ll remain a club member, and will still attend club meetings and events from time to time. As a result of this move the website will be managed by Merinda and Bob A. from now onwards. We wish them every success in taking on this responsibility, and look forward to their creativity and flair being showcased in what is both a technical as well as artistic pursuit.
