Thanks Andy, your work looks great and Ill definitely be in contact at some stage.

Take care,

Canon XHA1 owner in Sussex

Another member from the UK, living in East Sussex. I have been lurking for a couple of years while in full time work, completely unrelated to video. And in the meantime learnt a lot from the forum.
Now that I am in semi-retirement, I am returning to a hobby I started many years ago. I would like to improve my work with practical training courses and to that end have considered joining the IOV. Has anyone experience with the IOV that they would like to share?

David

IOV (Institute of Videography)

Hi Dave,

I went to the IOV event in Coventry a few months ago with a friend I'm now working with (on corporate video stuff in Dublin) and posted about the IOV back then - as I was not aware of it before at all.

It was actually a VERY good trade show, great range of exhibitors of pro gear and they had many IOV and trade organised seminars on specific subjects (we paid our £10 and sat in on the corporate one). Whllst I learnt nothing "staggeringly new" it was a great "day out", we met some like minded videographers for a chat over gear etc. and we saw and handled (the then) new Sony Z7 & (I think from memory) Z5 etc. My mate and I are EX1/3 freaks so this was more out of curiosity......

I struggled with whether or not I should join the IOV but in the end did not (from memory it's about £120/year - Google them for all the details).

I'm sure I'm wrong (and any replies will no doubt confirm if this is true or not by IOV members and non-members!) but it seemed a lot of wedding videographers are in the IOV. I would certainly consider visiting their next annual convention again this coming year and recommend it to others - even though I'm not interested at all in wedding video work.

That's my personal take on the IOV at the moment from a few brief hours exposure.

IoV Institute of Videography

Hi Andy

Thanks for your comments. I've just received their Information Pack, which does not go into a lot of detail, so I'll contact them directly for more details. Also hope that there are more IoV members in this forum who will comment.

Hello everyone,

I've just set up a corporate production business; very small scale at the moment - well, I only really started about a week ago, having just been made redundant from ITV, part of their mass cull of regional journalists. Am now spending hours each day firing off emails, making calls etc, trying to get some fingers into some pies...

I've been lurking on this site for a while though and have found it a fantastic source of information and a lovely group of people.

PS Based in Maidstone, Kent.

Regards
Dave

Greetings from Nottingham (in a few months to be London!).

Just another aspiring film maker, trying to find a way to work myself up the ladder. Have gained a lot of useful information since I found this board and hopefully, when I know more, I can give back a little.

LOL do i get the chance to win a million? ;)

I'm not a serious videographer btw, just enjoy recording life as I see it...... a bit warped to be honest he he, fascinated by people and what drives their existence.

Only today at the bus station I captured a bus-spotter photographing the new pink 'park and ride' buses in Ipswich. He seemed a little uncomfortable being filmed but I considered it hypocritical so continued regardless.

Still photography is my real passion :)
