NJVA Meeting this Wednesday “Show and Tell”



Show and Tell

Now’s your chance to show off that latest video related thing you just got over the summer. Dan Strickler will show us his new Sony AVCHD camcorder, the NX5U.
He reports, “I’ve taken it out on 4 jobs so far and I’m very pleased with the results. I think it’s a real winner and has the potential of being very popular with event videographers. It’s a good, solid camera at a modest price.” He’ll give us a tour of the camera and demo some footage on an HD projector. Then Dave Hall will show his Kessler CineSlider, Sachtler FSB 4 carbon fiber tripod and Rode Stereo Videomic (which includes the dead kitten.)

and Anthony Quintano will be showing off the Jag35 Shoulder rig.


Eric Model, Tony Cucci, Julie Conroy and John Karczmit will also be sharing. But we still have time in the schedule for a few more cool, video-related gadgets. So if you recently purchased something that has changed your life as a videographer – okay, maybe it’s not a life-changer, but something you think we ought to know about,don’t keep it a secret, share! Please e-mail Dan Strickler and he’ll fit you in the schedule. If you are intending on coming to the meeting please RSVP either by commenting on this post or RSVP to the event page on facebook

Video Contest!

Anything But a Wedding Video

The September 15th contest will feature any video that is not wedding related; a corporate job, a PR piece, a dance concert, anything that does not include a bride and groom!

Please email Dan Strickler to let us know you plan to enter so we can better schedule the evening.

Because the category is so broad, you will not be comparing the videos to each other but rather judging each on a scale of 1 to 10 on the basis of their artistic and technical merits.

Awards: Gold, Silver, and Bronze will be presented to the top three entries. Winners will be announced at the completion of the NJVA meeting. Awards will be presented at the NJVA holiday party in December.
