Member Showcase: Video Biography DVD Gone Wild! by Mike McGready
Here's an example of how networking within OCMMA results in good projects coming your way. Mike McGready, Owner and Creative Director of Album of Life Video Studios, will show this very ambitious video biography DVD that allowed him to flex his multimedia muscle and creativity in several dimensions.
It is a celebration of the life and common bonds of those who shared grades 1 through 8 at St. Philip Neri School in Portland, Oregon, 55 years before. Thirty-five biographies, a reunion slideshow, a Then and Now reliving of those formative years (great music!) and two half-day video shoots of his client were all part of the challenges Mike took on. He has many stories to tell.
Food and networking will begin at 6:00 PM. The meeting will be 6:30-9:00 PM. Visit www.ocmma.org for more information.
