|Town Meeting Tour Continues in Indiana
March 16, 2002
Indianapolis, IN - By drawing videographers from across Indiana, plus Illinois, Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania, the Hoosier State lived up to its nickname of “the Crossroads of America.” Videographers attending the WEVA Town Meeting in Indianapolis discovered a wealth of inside information just not available anywhere else.
Multi-year WEVA Creative Excellence Award-winner and WEVA EXPO speaker, John Weppler awed the sold-out audience with his “Power of the Wedding Prequel” presentation. Attendees learned new creative shooting and editing techniques for producing exciting wedding openings. Weppler's award-winning techniques also showed videographers how new video artistry can improve the individual look and "style" of professional wedding videos.
The Sponsors Reception was again a crowded scene, as videographers were eager to see the new DV, DVD and NLE products and services offered by Moore Digital, Canopus, Panasonic Broadcast, and Sony.
Indianapolis videographer John King, who was a local addition to speaker's platform, entertained the crowd with his concept videos which featured short-form spoofs of the tabloid TV shows. Attendees were clearly inspired by King's production and marketing success.
A standard part of this year's Town Meeting Tour program has been an explanation of WEVA committee work, which includes the September 11th Memorial Project. A tribute video produced by the committee, to honor one of the fallen heroes of 9/11 has been shown at each Town Meeting. John Weppler, the 9/11 committee chair, received a heart-warming round of applause.
WEVA Town Meeting attendees are urging all videographers to get to the Troy (MI) Marriott hotel for the March 18 Town Meeting in the Detroit metro area. It's the last stop before this year's winter tour officially concludes in Las Vegas on Tuesday, April 9 during NAB week.
