Audio Visual Group

The Audio-Visual (AV) Group meets on the first Monday of each month at the club rooms (7.00 pm for a 7.15 start).

The Coordinator of this group is Jack Jansen

What’s an Audio Visual?

In simple terms an AV is a planned sequence of images with a story line or theme, synchronised with music, sound effects or narration.

The aims of the AV group are to:

  • Develop skills in AV production techniques including, shooting and preparation of images, selection of music and sound and use of software
  • Provide resources for members for AV productions
  • Share AV productions for the enjoyment of members and for obtaining constructive criticism
  • Coordinate selection of club entries for AV competitions

Club members wishing to join the group can just come along to one of our monthly meetings.

Royalty Free Music

An excellent resource for free and royalty free music to add to your excellent slide shows is at Free Music Archive, where all tracks are free to download and a lot of tracks are licensed under the “creative commons” license which you may be familiar with from Flickr.  The site is broken up into sections based on the types of music and easily browsed.  Be sure to check the License of each track you use as some will not allow adaptations.

Using royalty free music will allow you to share your slide show around the web and world.  Great places to share your work would be -

- just to name a few and all are very easy to use.  If you upload something and want to share it with the rest of the group feel free to email me via the contact page and I’ll put it up on the site.
