JUNE 26th BCPVA Meeting – Telling Your Story – Writing for Video Productions

Hello BCPVA members and guests,

This Month we have an opportunity to learn the critical elements of story telling from an instructor and communications professional who has helped some of the Province’s largest organizations hone their messaging. Without argument story telling is the fundamental skill we all must have and one that is at the core of every well produced video – not to be missed!     Tuesday, June 26th, 2018.

We’ll be at the Community Living Society, located on the 7th floor of 713 Columbia Street in New Westminster (Columbia & Begbie, beside Waves coffee shop).

Networking will begin at 6:30, and the meeting will formally begin at 7:00 and run until 9:00 with a 15 minute break.
