Friday 30th at 7:30 pm - Judith Kimber - Mood and Music


Judith Kimber

Judith has been a secondary school music teacher for thirty years. For the last sixteen of those, Head of Music at Strathearn School in Belfast, her home city. Judith’s own main instrument is the piano, but her real love is teaching class music, from composing theme tunes for cartoon characters with eleven-year-olds to studying Baroque oratorio and forties jazz with A level students, and everything in between.

She has been taking photographs seriously for the last five years, and learnt a huge amount since joining Bangor and North Down Camera Club. Her friends and mentors there also introduced her to the art of AV, and she found this medium attractive from the start because it offers such great opportunities for combining music and photography. She particularly enjoys composing music for her own AV’s.

Judith won the Great Northern Competition in 2017 with ‘Matthew Loney’s Miracle’. She has also won the NIPA & IPF Festivals and gained her DPAGB/AV in May 2018.

Judith will talk about ‘Mood and Music’ and will demonstrate how music creates the mood and atmosphere within an AV.

This is a talk not to be missed and will be of interest to AV workers, Film makers and music lovers
