This year's Video Productions Group's movie "The Thief" is a short movie about art theft and deception with exciting chase scenes, tension, a surprise ending and a concluding counter-surprise. The movie is in pre-production with a written script completed. The team is currently looking for shoot locations and the casting talent. The shooting schedule will be based on location selection and talent availability.
The production crew and assignments are in process, so there is time for additional Club members to join the VPG. We try to approach our Club movies in a professional manner. The job duties have been establilshed and titles defined, such as Director, Writer, Production Manager, Director of Photography, Video Editor, Lighting Director, Sound Director and Project Designer. Along with these there is the need for grips, gaffers and assistants for many positions. Casting for the main characters and extras is currently in process.
All members of the Viewfinders Club are encouraged at any point in the project to become part of this movie production either as a crew member, actor or extra. The best way to learn is through on-the-job training and observation - no experience required. Contact Group Leader if you'd like to become involved or just want to observe and learn more about the Club's Video Production Group. It's an experience that you'll cherish for years to come!
