Christmas Dreaming

At 7:30 PM on Friday, December 9, we will be having our annual Christmas gathering at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre. This will be a pot luck (appetizers). This year we’re going to have a brainstorming session to come up with ideas about what direction we’d like the club to go in during the next few years. In recent years we’re made a lot of dreams come true: the observatory, a community TV show, a Bravo Channel documentary, to name but a few. I am sure that some of the more quiet of you have wonderful dreams too: ideas you’d like to see come to life. Come share those with us all so we can make them happen too.

Closing In On the Fine Cut

I spent the last 6 days in Winnipeg in studios at Merit Motion Pictures and MoonGazy Films working on turning the rough cut of our Bravo film “Starry Nights” into a finished film. We worked on recording voice overs, editing, special effects and art work, adding astrophotography, adding the music, and creating the credits. This week it will be going to technicians for color correction and sound editing. By the end of this week we hope to have it wrapped!
