A small but now inspired group enjoyed two fantastic sessions with Ian Batt.


DSLR  and High Definition Video

With a little shift in the way you think…

Some inspiration and tips from one who knows….

The results are impressive even for the beginner!


Check out Ian’s latest project using DSLR High Definition Video launched last week.


An enormous thanks to Ian Batt for volunteering his time this weekend.

Ian is a long standing supporter of GSFI and we can not thank him enough for his contributions each year.


The team at GSFI would also like to thank Brendan Edelman from PRA Imaging

who was kind enough to supply equipment for the workshops.


A small group were very lucky to score one on one attention from Barry Evans on Sunday 24th to learn the basics of editing using their own footage with Pinnacle Movie Maker. This session also proved perfect for those families who really needed to cover the very basics!

A SCOPE team member, Barry is a volunteer Media Consultant at the Albany Primary School. Now retired, Barry has had an extensive career in skills photography, documentary making, and independent films, working with BBC ITV, Channel 4 and National Geographic. He has a keen interest in sharing his expansive experience and skills with his students and young people in the community.

The team at SCOPE and GSFI would like to sincerely thank Barry for his kind voluntary assistance in sharing his knowledge, skills and time on the day.
