THE ANNUAL TROPHY COMPETITION
It was full house again for the screening of our Annual Trophy Competition at the clubroom. Six videos were shown and after each one the judge, producer and director Keith Sheather, gave his critique
After light refreshment and FREE coffee the results were announced and Keith awarded prizes and commented on the very high standard of entries.
Chromafest was an all day exercise to investigate all aspects of chromakey technique in a controlled and scientific manner.

The results will be presented at our next meeting.
