HPS AV Corner 2009

Welcome to all HPS members who enjoy creating audio visuals or are curious about this wonderful, expressive medium!

Let’s start with our monthly AV meetings…

AV MEETINGS

Our monthly meetings take place on every last Wednesday of the month at 19:00 for 19:30 at the Library Hall in Somerset West.

This year we’ll be setting a task for each AV evening. We want to encourage you to think of AV sequences while you’re photographing. It’s a challenge, it’s fun — and it’s a foundation for creative audio visuals.

An AV sequence is a series of photos that form a unit, connected by a subject and/or a photo technique.

In preparation for each AV evening you’ll be given a set subject for an AV sequence. Whenever possible we’ll be showing an example or a short demo at the preceding meeting.

Then all you need to do is put your sequence together and bring it along to the meeting as a Wings clip. You’re also welcome to include sound.

We hope that you’ll find participating and sharing experiences to be a stimulating and challenging way to enrich your understanding and grow your skills.

EVENTS

Our Gala Evening will be taking place in October. We hope you’ll all have something special up your sleeve?

This year’s set subject for an AV is “Living from the Sea”, to be shown in November.

The One Day Workshop takes place on 15 August in Stellenbosch. It’s going to be a great experience – if you have any suggestions or requests for subjects to cover, please let us know!

ANNUAL PHOTO/AV WEEKEND

The annual Photo/AV Weekend will be taking place in Jacobsbaai from Thursday 24 to Sunday 27 September 2009.

Where?

Jacobsbaai is a quiet little seaside village on the West Coast, still unspoiled, with mostly dirt roads and no shopping centers or amenities.

We’ve booked two self-catering cottages (sleeping six people each) and a conference room at the ‘Weskusplek’ in Jacobsbaai for that long weekend.

Each cottage costs R900 per night taken. In addition a cottage for two can be booked at R580 per night, not including breakfast.

There is a little restaurant – the only one in Jacobsbaai – with a beautiful view over the bay.

The conference room will be ideal for AV workshops and get-togethers in the evenings.

This outing from Thursday 24 – Sunday 27 September is planned for all HPS members! Please ensure your place by an early booking with Paddy!!! A % deposit is required.

More detailed information will follow later.

  1. Irmel! – thank you to you, and Paddy, for this amazing audio-visual program for the year! I can see that a huge amount of research and organisation has gone into these arrangements – I hope many more members will take part in the making of AVs. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.
