Happy Fix-It-In-Post Halloween Video Contest

Every videographer and editor has experienced the nightmare of having to produce a great video from frighteningly poor video footage. Raw video can have problems with lighting, focus, sound, composition, shakiness and they’re counting on you to “Fix-It-In-Post”.

BCPVA and Fusion Cine are terrified to give you a chance to show off your magic and compete for cool prizes with our Halloween-themed video contest. At BCPVA’s Member Meeting on October 23, we’ll be unveiling the nasty, problem-infested raw video footage that you’ll get a headache working with! Then at our November 27 meeting, we’ll be screening all creative contest entries and handing out prizes to the best video fixer-uppers. The winners’s videos will be featured at www.bcpva.ca

Fusion Cine is providing the first prize for the editing competition, Roland Edirol R-09HR Field Recorder valued at $400 MSRP. Fusion Cine provides products, solutions, and technical resources that transform the way creative professionals gather, manage and communicate their vision. Other exciting prizes to be announced later.

That’s Not All!

BCPVA monthly meetings are a forum for members and guests to learn, share, and network with video industry professionals.

Typical meetings can include presentations by experts in technology, shooting, editing, storytelling & imagery, and business management. New Professional members often show examples of their video productions followed by Q&A and open topic discussions.

Frequently our Vendor Members bring the latest technology like cameras, lights, and gear to our meetings so you can try them out.

The point of BCPVA meetings is to help our members be the best videographers they can be!

Words, Pictures & Music

Words, Pictures and Music – affectionately known to some as “WPM Group” or just “WPM” – is incorporated as a strategic communication company that provides messaging through the art and science of words that inform, pictures that captivate and music that inspires.

We believe that these are the three key components – not just in business, but in life – that influence the way people think, feel and ultimately, what they do. WPM’s collaborative team of professionals have not only years of training and experience, but the passion to help others in all three areas.

We’ve worked on behalf of creative marketing agencies, corporate and non profit organizations and have been a part of many major campaigns. We are also passionately involved with helping members of our community achieve success.

Our diverse client base includes Pacific Salmon Foundation, SFU Surrey Campus, Travelers Financial, Sunbelt Business Brokers, National Bank Financial, and others.

Words
The power of the written word is considerable. But is it mightier than the sword? Yes! Because they influence the way people think, feel and act.
However that power, whether spoken or written, depends not only on the words themselves, but the ideas they convey. And how many people they reach. And what the call to action is.

Writing services include creative copy, content for newsletters and websites, as well as SEO writing, which is the art and science of using key words and phrases to profile your brand and message on the world wide web.

Pictures
Our videos and photos have helped individuals and organizations reach their target audience, tell their story and increase their credibility. We can produce projects of any size and we pride ourselves on helping our clients reach their goals and keep to their budgets.

Music
Besides making us want to dance sing, and get up in the morning, music delivers emotion, attaches experiences to long term memory and command attention – either consciously or subconsciously.
Music provides a rhythm for video editing. The right music will increase the listener’s / viewer’s general awareness of your message, emphasize key aspects of it and will help distinguish your brand.

We can help select or produce the right music for your ad, video, marketing campaign or event.
