At our meetings we show members' videos, discuss and demonstrate editing techniques, and provide one on one support to beginners and more experienced video editors alike. We also have tutorials on improving techniques in capturing, editing, and improving your home movies.

Group members have a wide range of ability from beginners to experienced, and their skills are openly shared via the group session.

The Club provides a dedicated computer for members to practice on and it is loaded with the latest “Power Director 16” video editing software and essential "plug-ins" to create those "special effects".
