John Alessi – Audio Visual Productions 22 May

John delivered a very interesting and information presentation on Audio Visual productions, using Proshow Gold software. He encouraged us to share our images by producing attention grabbing productions.

Proshow Gold allows the user to produce stimulating shows which can be include still images, video clips and music for the web, social media, computer and TV. The software uses transparency layers to provide movement in still images. John talked about how composite images in Australia have dated back to Frank Hurley who used 12 glass negative plates to depict a battle scene in WWI in 1918

John showed us some of stunning productions, using his images and those of his wife Leanne. He also mentioned tutorials which can be found on You Tube for Proshow Gold.

It was obvious that John had spent a lot of time and effort to put together a wonderful presentation for our club. Thank you John for a wonderful presentation and for all of your hard work.
