March Meeting Minutes


Our March meeting featured an extremely informative presentation on Production Insurance given by Karen Marshall of Marshall Entertainment Insurance, Inc. Production insurance is a vital necessity to our industry. Karen started with an overview of the various types of coverage available, and focused on the options that were most pertinent to the members of our group. She then thoughtfully answered our members' questions, and shared her insider tips for dealing with many of the local venues who require insurance certificates.

After Karen's presentation, we followed with several video clips brought in by our members, including the new PVCF Promo put together by PVCF President Bobby Fishbough and featuring several of our members in on-camera interviews. This will be an evolving piece and we will be adding testimonials to the final edit over the next several months. The current version can be found below and on our website.

Then, Brian revealed the new PVCF Bridal Show Banner that was purchased with proceeds from the monthly raffle. Special thanks to Focal Press and all the contributors and sponsors who have generously provided items for this awesome revenue generator!  Featured books at this month's raffle were: Directing the Documentary, 5th Edition by Michael Rabiger and Audio Postproduction for Film and Video by Jay Rose, both available at Focal Press.
Following the regular meeting, we reconvened at the Orlando Ale House around the corner for a more "social" networking session. It was such a success that it may become a recurring feature of our meetings!
