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.
COMBINED INTER-CLUB ZOOM MEETING  As lockdowns and restrictions continue, we have all turned to innovation, technology and our creativity with great success. On Saturday the 9th of October in houses from Wollongong, Nowra through to Ulladulla, members Zoomed in for a virtual Combined Clubs Meeting, hosted by the Wollongong Club. Starting at 10am, some thirty members (12 from our club) met on screen. Topics covered included: Club and member ‘happenings’ during lockdown; new equipment purchases; innovative ideas; stitching drone photos together and an introduction to an App called Yesterday Stories. Members have been invited to contribute to this exciting collection of historical events, people and places. The highlight was the playing of each Clubs’ video interpretation of “BRUSH”. Made under strict lockdown conditions, each entry showed that everyone was up for the challenge. Wollongong used a Zoom sitting between an artist and his subject, with a clever twist on the end. Nowra shared a collection of videos of each participating member experiencing lockdown life. Our Club met the challenge by each participant filming a section of the video at their home and then sending to Paul Davies our editor to work some magic in the editing suite. For all the clubs, the experience was an experimental adventure into a whole new world of how things can be done when ‘normal’ disappears. Lots of fun and great results.                         Congratulations to all three Clubs. We are all looking forward to the next time we meet, hopefully we will be able to enjoy a meal together, in person. Bob Antill With our 2021 Christmas Party coming up, why not relive last year’s event. With the lockdown woes receding, we could all be forgiven for beginning the festive spirit a little early! And why not watch the entry from Wollongong Camera Club Movie Makers.             Click the button: OUR FACEBOOK IS BACK!

After many months of Zoom meetings finally we have been able to meet in the flesh. 14 members braved and dogged the rain drops, to meet under the verandah of St Martin’s Anglican Church in Ulladulla. President Sandra opened the meeting with a warm welcome to Kevin Richards our newest member however, not new to the club. Kevin has written many scripts for the club and has now decided to join in the fun and excitement of videography. Treasurer Jan presented a positive report on the club’s finances and Vice President Merinda reported on her challenges with the web page program. After a positive conversation the administration and creative control of our web site was handed back to our “Web Master” John Baker.  Ken reminded everyone that the remix of our Boat Harbour Challenges would be due at the next meeting on December 2nd and also called for members to join his subcommittee for Program & Events. JB asked for training suggestions for 2022. Christmas Party has been locked in at the Dunn Lewis Centre on the 4th of December. Should be a great night and we have 6 VOTY (Video of the Year) entries to show and be judged. The draw for the order in which the videos will be shown was finalised at today’s meeting and now the serious work of judging begins! Coffees were ordered from the Civic Centre Café and duly delivered. A wonderful morning tea of slice and scones, pikelets and cookies. Much needed catching up followed. Lunch was declared and many adjourned to the Ulladulla Bowling Club. Stay tuned for the venue of our next meeting and don’t forget the Christmas Party on the 4th of next month, Ho Ho Ho. Bob Antill
