PVCF Website is Up and Running!!

Well, it took some time, but the new website is up, running and linked to this Blog and the Forum.  Take some time to familiarize yourself with the new site.  For Business Professional members, review the member directory and check out your listing.  Not all listings are up and running at this time, but I will try to get all the listings up in the next week or so. 

To update or create your member profile with video, go to the pvcf.org website.  Click on I AM A VIDEOGRAPHER.  Log in to the MEMBERS ONLY section.  (email me at pvcfadmin@gmail.com if you need the log in info.)  Go to MEMBER PROFILES.  Click on UPDATE MEMBER PROFILE and follow the instructions on the form.  You should upload your demo video to Vimeo, Brightcove or YouTube before doing this so you will have the link info when filling out the form.  Your updated or new profile should be posted within a few days.  Keep in mind that only BUSINESS PROFESSIONAL MEMBERS (those with a business license) will receive a listing in the MEMBER DIRECTORY, but all members will be listed in the general Member Profiles section in the Members Only area.

Also, please note that we will be limiting the amount of email to members in the future.  All major notices will be posted to either the Blog or Forum, whichever is more appropriate.  Meeting notices will always be posted to this Blog.

PVCF is in need of a Membership Director.  If you are interested in the position, please let us know so we can fill it soon.  Although the duties are relatively minimal, we anticipate an influx of new members over the upcoming year as we plan on promoting several new initiatives.  Description of the position is as follows:

We've got a great meeting planned for September!  

We finally got a room at Full Sail thanks to some persistent work by Bobby.  He has also set up a workshop training session for that night which will focus on the Interview, including camera, audio and lighting set up.

Also planned is the unveiling of the new PVCF website which boasts some really cool features for Business Professional members that will add a ton of value to the site.  There's still a few things to finish, but it's about 95% done.  It should go live by Tuesday or Wednesday of that week.

We are still in need of your video clips which will be featured in the new PVCF promo video, currently in the works.  Please bring a miniDV tape, .mov/.avi file on disc, or a DVD of your best 1 minute clip to the meeting.  This is a great opportunity to have some of your work showcased so don't miss out on the opportunity!

Again, don't forget to check out the forum and post -- it's a great way to network for the 30 days when we don't see each other.
