MINUTES FOR THE VIDEO PRODUCERS CLUB July 27, 2017 MEETING
Members present: Joseph Valentinetti, Lorene Christian, Bill Frambach, Irene Cistaro, Janice Laine, Richard Houck, Michael Oh, Joe Osuna, Oralia Osuna, Bonnie Cooper, Mike Turis, Ren Villaneuva, Howard Jarvis, Lynn Choy, John Robinson, Anna Derby.
Minutes:  The June minutes were unanimously approved.
Treasurer:  The June treasurer’s report showed a balance of $1998.82 in the bank account.  Petty cash balance is $130.00. The treasurer’s report was unanimously approved.
New Business: A request for coverage for a choir event included the stipulation that they see the video before it is shown on TV because they had some SAG members who are not allowed to work complimentarily. A discussion followed.
Another discussion concerned whether to video church services. It is permissible to video events in church as long as it does not include proselytizing or requests for donations.
Only one of the computers in the VPC room has all of the necessary information to complete the production of a video. There is often a hold up with several members needing to use that computer. VPC is putting together a program so that all members will learn how to use the packing program that will allow them to move from one computer to another, thus eliminating that problem. Members can come by the VPC room on Monday or Wednesday morning when Joe or Joseph may be available to show them how to use the easy program. It only takes a few minutes to learn it.
