The Cavideo News Letter
The main vehicle for keeping members in touch, and learning about the field
of video is the Cavideo Newsletter. The Cavideo Newsletter is published 4 times a year,
and is sent to all current members. The quality of the newsletter is only as good as the
contributions, so members are encouraged to submit articles on any aspect
of cave video.
In order to submit articles, send them to the Editor of the Video section. Sending material
electronically (via email) is preferable. Material can be sent in the body of the email,
or as attachments. The editor can accept almost any format, especially for Intel based
machines. The editor uses Microsoft Word, and MS Publisher for the newsletter. However,
articles sent mail will be gladly accepted. Art work, graphics and covers are also
Suggestions for articles:
Here are some ideas
that you might consider when writing an article for the newsletter.
A trip report on a cave trip in
which you did some video work. Was the trip just for fun, or were you shooting scenes with
a specific video in mind. What kind of gear did you take? Did you have help to carry
batteries and such? Did you have a plan with dialog?
A description of your entry into the NSS Video
Salon. What did you do to produce the video. What problems did you encounter
during the production.
Description ( parts list, etc ) for home built
equipment such as lights, special cables, or sound equipment.
Ideas on subject matter for caving related videos.
Can you tell about the techniques you use for lighting in a cave. How many lights do you
use? Where do you place them? Do you use helmet mounted lights?
Do you do mostly action scenes, or just formations,
or both? etc, etc, etc.
These are just a few ideas to inspire you
