Audio Visual Group

Welcome to the AV Group

The Audio Visual Group welcomes all members interested in the art of audio-visual making. It is a challenge to combine images, sound and narrative to achieve a production which will absorb the viewer and elicit an emotional response.

With the arrival of digital AV, the medium has become more accessible and popular. The best way to learn what makes a good AV is to watch what others have made. Take every opportunity to do this by, e.g.:

  • Attending APSCON or photographic conventions in your own state or territory.
  • Attend, if you are able, judging days for National and International AV Salons..
  • Visit sites on the web where you can view the work of others.

If you would like to know more, contact the APS Secretary who will put you in touch with the Group Chair, John Hodgson.  

Assistance and advice can be given on equipment and software to use according to your budget and anticipated type of productions. Creating an AV does take a while, but when you have done your first one you can, if you wish, have it evaluated with some constructive and positive advice.

Members of the AV Group have the opportunity to enter their work into two or three national exhibitions  each year, and every second year,an International AV Festival which is held in Adelaide. These competitions are open to AVs made on either a PC or Mac, and the accepted file formats are listed on the entry forms.

A closed Facebook group has been created for those wishing to share their AVs, or ask questions about AV making. At the moment, that group is lacking a coordinator, and we would welcome any member willing to take on that responsibility.
