Discover the Artist Series:

This is the first meeting in a series where we will study the work of a single outstanding director/ videographer from somewhere in the world.

Whether you create wedding films, documentaries, corporate features, we consider ourselves visual storytellers, yet there are filmmakers outside the NJVA that tell their stories in ways we have yet to discover.

We’re going to view and study 2-3 films by filmmaker Andrew Bordwin of MilkBoxNY and uncover the key to why his films are so extraordinary. There will be time for LOTS of discussion, opinions, and insights. Everyone is welcome to participate in the discussion.

You can’t find this kind of analysis in any online course or Youtube video ..but you can -at Tuesday’s May 23rd NJVA meeting.
Crafting an effective Elevator Pitch:

You only have 90 seconds to make an impression.  Do you know what to say?  We will review some of the fundamentals of crafting your pitch in under 2 minutes.  This is a skill that everyone needs to master.  Some of our members will even get to share their pitch with the group.

Brown Bag Video Sharing:

Everyone loves to show off their latest and greatest video project.  Pick a video clip under 3 minutes to show & put it on a removable USB drive and we will share it with the group.  You can even choose to remain anonymous and get critiqued by those in attendance.  Files should be compatible with the Mac operating system.

Equipment Sale:

If you have some gear to sell bring it to the meeting.  We will have a table in the back to display some of the items.  You can always leave it in your car and have a printout of what you have for sale.

See you all on the 23rd
