GUILD OF TV CAMERAMEN AGM EVENT
The Guild of TV Cameramen held their annual AGM with us and had an excellent turn out on a perfect day in May. The day consisted the address by the Chairman, combined with viewing the latest camera equipment and then trying their hand at skid control and karting.
In their own words they said the following on their website:-
- great networking - young cameramen new to the industry were able to chat to and take advice from vastly experienced cameramen and make connections that might kickstart their careers
- at the other end of the spectrum, older and retired cameramen were able to socialise with colleagues both old and and young and keep up with happenings in the industry
- GTC sponsors Canon were able to showcase their latest auto-focus
OBlenses and the new XF305 camera in a realistic environment and gain valuable feedback from working cameramen
- in amongst it all, GTC business was done - a new Constitution for the GTC was ratified, the annual accounts were presented, and GTC members were given the chance to express their opinions on the running of their Guild
- above all, it was great fun - members and sponsors took to the go-kart track to race against each other and as for the antics on the skid pan, well some of that was frankly scary!
So, fun, competition, hands-on product trials, sociability ... and lunch -
Truly A Big Day Out!
