Video One production group stepping up to help other Village Clubs
Thanks to the Video One production group, more Village clubs are enjoying the fruits of the Video Club's labor with videos spotlighting fun events and activities. Here's a summary of how Video One is helping other Village clubs:
Last fall, Video One's co-facilitator Lucy Parker shot a Voices of Exciting Women Writers & Poets Club lecture by local poet and literature professor Robbi Nestor discussing American poet Emily Dickinson. She edited the footage into an hour-long program that ran six times on Village Television.
In April, a Video One team captured the Laguna Woods Senior Clown Alley graduation ceremonies in Clubhouse 6 with Andy Cullinana, Bob D'Evelyn, Lisa Aoki and Gloria D'Simone Shute. Filmmaker David Bukstein, grandson of residents Paul and Selma Bukstein, asked for help in collecting footage for a documentary film he's making on the clowns, the largest senior clown organization in the world.
Video One member John Kelly shot a video of the Garden Centers Club facilities in the spring that ended up on Village Television and YouTube. He also turned the shoot into an educational presentation on “pre-production planning.”
In July, resident and Video Club member Gordon Richiusa donated $500 to the club from an outside grant he's administering to produce yoga videos for veterans. Under Gordon's direction, Video One volunteers shot a series of short lessons conducted by professional trainers in the Video Studio. Gordon is working on the final edits.
Most recently, Jim Rohrs, Paul Chiang and Tom Sheng volunteered their time and expertise to covering the amazing 2017 Aquadettes Show. This beloved synchronized swimming group has been a Village tradition for more than five decades.
