BCPVA_newsletter_Mar 27 2018

Hello BCPVA members and guests,

We’re back with a moderated group discussion on Tuesday, Mar 27th, 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.

1) Rising to the Challenge of Business & Production Issues – Moderated Brainstorming and Group Discussion

Looking to grow your business into new markets? Looking to upgrade your gear, but not sure what’s the best investment? Trying to figure out where best to focus your marketing plan? Wondering just how far guerilla filmmaking can get you before you start running into legal trouble? We have had some awesome presentations the last few months, but it’s meant not much time for group discussion. So this month, we are going to break out into small groups to choose, discuss, and brainstorm solutions to common problems that video producers face. Bring your challenges!

2) New Professional Member Presentation – Dorin Sovarosi

Dorin Sovarosi studied Video and Design at BCIT. After several years of corporate videography for a non-profit organization, and freelance videography for local communities, family, friends, and other non-profit organizations, Dorin has now taken the steps to invest into full-time freelance videography. He will be presenting on his experiences from his employed years as well as his first few months as a full-time freelance videographer.

Meeting will end with a 15 minute open discussion.
