SPECIAL PROGRAM: Seeking Why Great Videos Are Great!
Featuring Paul Tetreault Leading Our Search!
Paul Tetreault, owner of Possibilities A/V, Past President of OCMMA and founder of its DV SIG, will share his insights and direct a discussion as we seek what makes great videos! This may be the best program we've come up with yet! For this meeting, everyone is on the panel of experts. Whether you are in the room in person or via Connect, you will be part of the discussion. We will be seeking to discover why our favorite videos "float our boat." Why and how they push buttons that ordinary productions don't. And, most importantly, how we can channel what we discover to inspire our own creativity. Send Mike McGready a link to your favorite clip so it can be one of the dissected works.
