Our speaker is Robert Albright FRPS.
Robert will present “The Drama of AV” and underline the parallels with movie production in the construction of an AV. This will include a description of story selection/writing/adaptation, concept development, pre-production, filming and post production/editing.
The show will consist of about 10 productions, each one introduced by a description of the inspiration and concept behind the work. Audience comments and questions are encouraged at regular intervals.
Robert has won prizes at many AV events, including Gold Medals at the RPS National AV Championships, The Peter Coles Trophy, The Great Northern and The European Cup and Silver Medal at the RPS International AV Championship.
He has shown his work and judged AV’s all around the world, from Ireland to Australia. He is currently Chairman of the PAGB AV Awards and was Chairman of The RPS AV Panel until its replacement by the Multimedia and Narrative Panel.
It will be an entertaining and informative day for us all.
The meeting starts at 10.30 with attendees’ sequences. This is your chance to show off your work and get some kind, helpful comments on improving it or maybe just saying how wonderful it is. This is always an important and enjoyable part of our day so please bring along your AVs.
