The internationally acclaimed AV maker Charles Hulse from Australia will be the guest speaker, presenting some of his award-winning AVs with the overall title Emotion, Drama and Beauty. Please invite friends or interested parties, and RSVP Nellian Bekker – firstname.lastname@example.org – before 8th September.
CHARLES HULSE has been making AVs since the late 1970s and was a founder member of the audio visual group ‘Third Image’. In 1981, Charles became the first and only Australian to gain a Fellowship from the RPS for making AVs (FRPS). This followed his ARPS award in 1979 just a couple of years after he began. In 1993, he accepted the position as the first Director of the Adelaide AV Fest, where he was responsible for all aspects of the festival.
In 1996, he was awarded an AV-AFIAP from FIAP – the first Australian to gain that honour; and in 2016, he was awarded the AV-EFIAP. Throughout his AV career, Charles has been a judge at all levels of competition. He has twice judged the International 321 event and was the co-ordinating judge for the 2016 South African international Water AV salon. Charles currently has about 80 productions to his name and has more AVs in the FIAP Permanent AV Collection than any other author.
