AUDIO VISUAL WORKSHOP WITH RICHARD BROWN, FRPS
INTERNATIONAL AUDIO VISUAL SHOWDOWN
Oakwood Hotel, Shannon, Co. Clare.
Saturday, 22nd April, 2017.
Admission – free!
Doors will open at 10 a.m., for the workshop to commence at 10.30 a.m.. Richard – one of the judges for AV2017 – will start off with some general tips and ideas for better scriptwriting illustrated with some sound clips. Then he will compare and contrast the words and planning of “It All Adds Up” and “In Search of Christina” – two of his new sequences – two sequences on a similar theme but different script treatments. He will also show additional sequences from his collection.
In the afternoon, there will be a showing of a selection of the international audio visuals entered in the showdown competition. This will include sequences from Melbourne, South Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Staffordshire , Holland, Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Sequences have been pre-judged and results will be announced at the end of the competition.
This is a great opportunity to hear from an international audio visual creator and to see how sequences are created in different parts of the world.

Last night, April 10th, we came to the final night of the 2016 – 2017 weekly Photo league and thanks to Maria O’Brien we had, for the first time, a beautiful trophy to present to the winner.
The whole club membership is most grateful to Maria for her great generosity in donating this Perpetual trophy, which will be competed for long into the future.
The winner on this occasion was Noel Ryan, a very consistent entrant throughout the year followed closely by Helen McQuillan in second place and Edwin Bailey in third.Read More
Once again we had a very fine entry for the annual Spring Trail event around the St Patrick’s day festivities. The trail was set this year by Helen McQuillan and Maria O’Brien and they set it in the Vandeleur Gardens, Kilrush and around the town of Kilrush.
Unfortunately, the weather was most unkind over the three days but eighteen brave souls braved the elements and produced fine sets of images.
The competition was won by Dave Halliday, with Christy Griffin in second place followed by Harry Pierce in third. Patricia Egan took the best First Time entrant.
The judge on the night was Adrian Kelly, Limerick Camera Club.Read More
Hope everybody enjoys the Spring Trail and that the weather will be reasonably good on the 17th – 19th.

Congratulations to Shannon Camera Club member Helen McQuillan LIPF on winning Best Nature Sequence at the NIPA Audio Visual Competitions held in The Courtyard Theatre, Ballyearl, Co Down on 17th and 18th of February 2017. Helens sequence titled ‘ Natures Tapestry’ featured flora and fauna of a waste land area with beautiful photography and music accompanied by her own words which added depth and meaning to the sequence.
Congratulations also to Edwin Bailey LIPF on winning 3rd place in the All Ireland section of the competition in which there were 17 entries from various parts of the country with 10 photo clubs represented. Edwin’s entry featured a visit to Bunratty Folk Park while reminiscing on how living used to be in his youth and making comparisons with what he saw through his camera lens while in the folk park. Prizes for the event were presented by Councillor Noreen McCelland, Deputy Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey. On addressing the audience she said she was delighted to see the presentation of winning entries and was captivated by the artistry of the sequences and encouraged audio visual enthusiasts to continue their creative journey and wished them every success in the future.Read More
