Frank started his talk by giving us some background on his background in the Video Industry.
Frank's wife Jean trained in the art of Movie making and Editing in 1980. She created her own Company "Catlin's Video Events" offering Corporate and Wedding Video Services. As Frank was still working full time his role was second Cameraman and Helper.
Jean started with VHS Tapes progressing through S-VHS, Hi8, Mini-DVD, Mini Hard Drive DV Tape and finally SD Cards. The output was given to the Customers as VHS Tapes, S-VHS Tapes and finally DVD's.
When Frank retired in 2006 Frank took up editing their holiday video under Jean's supervision and we have seen some great examples of these at our Video SIG Meetings on the second Monday of each month at Moorabbin (see Video Production SIG )
Frank also joined Roger Wragg's Vegas Pro Group to learn more about Video Editing. Over recent years Frank has spent his own time concentrating on holidays, school productions, concerts and grandkid's soccer - which is typical of our regular attendees.
As Frank had been showing some really good Videos at our Monthly Meetings we asked Frank to give us some tips on his Videoing and Editing techniques and Frank has created a series of Presentations - the first of which was shown at last month's Meeting and will continue over the coming Month's.
The full Presentation can be found at Frank Catlins Presentation .
