Stories from the web - Stewart Gordon
Stewart explained how he used free collaboration and production tools to document, produce and record the tales of HMQS Guyundah and HMQS Paluma in Brisbane:
Milanote Free (https://milanote.com/) for organising notes, images, files, text, photos, videos and links; and
Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) (https://obsproject.com/) for video recording and live streaming; and
Ashampoo Presenter (available in Ashampoo Office Free) https://www.ashampoo.com/en-au/office-free; and
Google Earth Pro (https://www.google.com/earth/versions/#earth-pro) create a tour and make a movie
He used these tools to gather and organise his information/research (Milanote), record (stream) himself speaking to to camera (OBS) using the club's teleprompter screen and present (Ashampoo Presenter) to the club.
After the break we watched two short films 'NY2022' from Michael Ming and 'Breakwater' from Peter Waterman.

Peter described non-committee roles that the club is looking to fill from the member base e.g. web site coordinator (updating events, UGG competitions and blogs), welcoming officer (Val), film festivals/events (e.g. 48 hour film festival - communicate to members), audio visual operator, hub liaison (Peter), marketing officer (Damian), club history officer, film activities coordinator (practical club activities at a location shoot using a drone, gimbal, woven into a simple story). Thanks to Paul Michael for volunteering to take over management of the club website.
