Potpourri Night

"a miscellaneous collection"

Each year at the first meeting in May, members are encouraged to present their work in themed A-V shows on DCC Potpourri Night. These popular shows allow members to present their images in a story-telling format with sound and effects.

Although there are many software packages out there that will allow you to make shows, Photostage by NCH for Windows PC's and MAC. If you are on a Mac, you might want to take a look at PhotoMagico. Other options are PowerPoint (Microsoft), Keynote (Apple), iMovie, and Quicktime. I am sure there are more but that should get you started. Another competent package is Adobe Lightroom.

Make your video. MP4 is preferred since some other formats such as AVI do not work well with zoom's video player. Include your name and the title of the show in the filename.

Please submit your potpourri videos to Don Haig (donhaig@gmail.com) and dennisfritsche@verizon.netby midnight, Sunday, May 7, 2023.  Due to the large size of the video files, send an email to Don containing a link (URL) to your video file on whatever file sharing/cloud storage service you use (Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, etc.).  Please verify the link included in your email has permissions set to permit your video file to be downloaded by Don.

When submitting your video, please observe the following guidelines:

·  One video submission per DCC Member

·  MP4 file format

·  Maximum length- 5 minutes

·  Include your name and show title in the filename

·  Include "DCC 2023 Potpourri Submission" in the subject line of your email

If you have any questions, contact Don directly by email, or phone him at 214-244-0775.
