Audio Visual Group


The MCC Audio Visual Group meets at the clubrooms on the third Wednesday of each month at 8pm.

When there is a 5th Monday in a month, we have a 'No Rules; Show & Tell' meeting, also at 8pm. The aim being to share and get feedback on your project, and watch AVs from other sources. For more information about our 5th Monday meetings, click here.

The aim of the group is to promote an understanding of Audio Visuals (AVs) and to teach members how to make their own presentations. We also hope to encourage members to participate in the various AV competitions and exhibitions that take place during the year, particularly the AV section in the MCC  End of Year competition.

Topics covered will include all aspects of the creative process, including useful techniques and the hardware/software requirements to produce and present an Audio Visual.

If you would like to know more about Audio Visuals, come along to the Audio Visual Group meetings (see dates below). The coordinator of the group is John Spring and he may be contacted via email.


We define "Audio Visual" (AV) as a planned sequence of overlaid and/or merged images that have transition effects between each image. Also known as "Sound Slides" and "Diaporamas", an AV usually includes images, sound, credit text and sometimes maps and graphics.

Saturday and Sunday June 1st and 2nd -  10am to 4pm each day.

There are five diverse subject Audio Visuals being projected from the Latow PG club along with the five Audio Visuals that members of the Melbourne Camera Club’s AV Group provided in exchange to the Canadian Latow AV group. This exchange between our two clubs will be the digitally projected program involving an exciting and diverse range of AV shows that will exemplify the differing geographic and photographic environments our AV producers work in. You can expect short story Audio Visuals of 2 to 3 minutes through to Audio Visual documentaries of 15 minutes.

The digital projection presentations with surround sound will be at the Melbourne Camera Club’s South Melbourne building. There will also be a separate ‘Nature’ print exhibition to view. This is a double program that visitors should not miss out on. There is also the opportunity to view the Club’s Victorian Government registered Heritage building constructed in 1876 which has been successfully repurposed and restored by Club members.
