On this date we lost Richard Aponte back in 2005. As his health was failing in the fall of 2004, the NJVA created a video to let Rich know we were keeping the NJVA alive while he was unable to come to meetings. We brought him the finished video on Nov. 22, 2004. The group photo was on the night of filming.

TFR set May 4 in Bedminster, New Jersey

Anyone using a drone in NJ pay special attention to when and where Trump will be in town. He has stated his Bedminster Golf Course is the summer WhiteHouse and when he is in town on the weekends, there will be a 30 mile radius no fly zone where ever he is at the time. Here is the TFR map from his May 4th trip to NJ. Impacts many reception halls. https://www.aopa.org/news-and-media/all-news/2017/may/03/tfr-set-may-4-in-bedminster-new-jersey

04/13/2017

The next meeting of the NJVA is Tuesday, April 25th at 6:00 PM at Total Wine in the Essex Green Shopping Center in West Orange. Italian Hot Buffet Dinner will be served and the meeting will begin at 7:00 and end by 10:00. Non-members are welcome to attend by paying the $20.00 guest fee at the door.

This month the meeting topic is:

It's All About Sliders and Drones

Two of the hottest tools for videographers are sliders and drones and this month we will explore both. We will have presentations this month demonstrating some of the sliders that our members are using. We will have sliders on display and look at footage recorded with them. In addition, we will talk about how to get the best results when doing time lapse using a slider. If you have a slider and would like to bring it to the meeting please let us know.

We will also be discussing the FAA regulations as it pertains to videographers and their drones. When do you need a license? How difficult is the test? How can I prepare for the exam? These are just some of the questions we will discuss. We will also have time to review some drone footage as well.

As a special treat will have a wine tasting courtesy of our hosts Total Wine & More.

We will continue to work on live streaming the meetings. We had some technical issues last month but the meeting was recorded. If you are a member you will be getting a link to access the recording.

Hope to see you all on the 25th.

Great turnout for our meeting tonight.

I'm sorry this is so long, but it may very well help YOU make money in these hard times. My home biz is booming even with covid-19. I am NOT bragging. To the contrary, if YOU have the equipment to do Transfers to DVD/Flash Drive like I do, this may very well help you make money during these terrible times. As a pro videographer my videotaping has come to a halt (No social gatherings, no sports, no corporate meetings) and I'm NOT about to expose myself to covid-19 by agreeing to tape any events where mucho people are gathered. Guys...your lives are not worth losing over money you may earn taping social events right now Now, I was on NJ 101.5 with Dennis and Judy. They allowed me to promote my transfer biz. My phone has been ringing off the hook. Most importantly is that my method of acquiring customer's media guarantees me and them 100% risk free safety with absolutely ZERO physical contact or close proximity between us when they drop off and when they pick up. Your customers MUST be reassured of this. Why am I doing so well? Think about it...many people must now stay at home due to pandemic. What a perfect time to have their stuff converted so they can watch and ENJOY their HAPPY memories and not watch the depressing news all day long. Tapes, films.slides which have been sitting in boxes collecting dust and not seen in decades! I reduced my prices by 20% to help make it more affordable for all. The earnings I make are used strictly to put food on the table for my family and to buy blank dvd-r's and flash drives from B&HVideo in NYC. They ARE shipping! I will now share my most successful marketing strategies in order of what works best! 1. I have signs at various intersections in my township which people see when they come to thr red light and they call me. I get the signs from Vistaprint so cheap and all it takes is one customer to more than pay for what the signs cost me. The sign simply reads: Transfers To DVD with three graphics and my tel# (actually see the pic below) *I offer FREE pickup and delivery for qualified size orders 2. Facebook. 3. Word of Mouth Magazines, circulars TOTAL waste of money! 4. Before the crisis and when it's over I will exhibit again at vendor markets. Although I can't sell anything there, what I do is PROMOTE my services and keep a log book for interested prospects to fill in their name and tel#. E-mails are a WASTE of time...so don't bother. Then I FOLLOWUP periodically - not too much as you don't want to harass people. They tend to express excitement at the market but then put transfers on the back burner. Eventually they DO want to have it done. If you have any questions or need help getting transfer equipment (trust me, I am a pro at getting equipment in mint condition at rock bottom prices on ebay where the sellers fight among themselves to sell their stuff cheaper than the next guy. Example: I just got a Bell & Howell 8mm film projector in mint condition with a working lamp bulb for $16.50. I am NOT messing with you. To start you only need one dual vhs/dvd recorder, a monitor, vhs-c converter and blank dvd-r discs. With just this one unit you can convert: VHS and VHS-C and IF you have a minidv camcorder and/or dig8 camcorder and RCA cables (Red/White/Yellow), you can use the same unit Lastly, I am NOT asking for or trying to make any money whatsoever from any of you*. My sole and sincere intent is to HELP others.Call me at: 732-671-6591 or e-mail [email protected] If you get any people wanting transfers and you don't have the equipment and don't plan on getting any equipment, but would still like to earn something, in this case only, I will accept customer referrals, do the transfers and give you 20%. Don't turn them away cause they'll just find somebody else. I think that this is very fair and still affords you a way to make some income. Customers are giving me 30, 50, 80 tapes. Between $8 and $15 per tape...do the math and 20% of that is NOT chump change. Warmest Wishes to you ALL Thomas Rodre
