July Meeting

*Accessories Not Included

This is the caveat we were up against as kids – our favorite toys always required extra accessories to get the most out of them. The same is true with video production! The HPVA meeting for July will cover just that. All the cool accessories you use in your productions to make them just right.

I’m talking about stabilizers. I’m talking about shoulder supports. I’m talking about lights and monopods. SHOW US WHAT YOU GOT!

July’s meeting is a discussion format and food will be served. Please bring your accessory of choice & your camera if necessary, and tell us a few words about it. You can even bring a DVD containing clips showcasing it’s use.

Membership: $100

Guests are welcome to attend for $20.
Doors Open @ 6:00pm, Discussion @ 6:30pm

Food will be provided.
