Exact wording is (1) Video (2) Producers Club (3) Established 1984.Eighteen word limit per line. John Robinson inquired as to the purpose of the bricks and the placement. There will be five locations, for brick placement. They are for the Seal Beach Centennial Celebration. One in Leisure World has to be voted on by the GRF.
President Valentinetti ask Joe Osuna to discuss lighting for the studio to buy cooler bulbs for less heat producing special bulbs will cost $300.00 (for three or four). Halogen bulbs and improper use of the bard doors on the lights have been responsible for four fires started in our studio. A need for better lights and better safety, he suggests, curly fluorescent. They provide wider field of light and are much cooler
