Director Credits

Eric Kenning ACS, began making films when he was 13, winning his first award, the 20th International Gold Cup competition for a travel film in 1959.
He began to freelance for the newly opened QTQ9 television station in Brisbane. His biggest story at that time was coverage of the first oil strike in Queensland. Eric then moved to Sydney and joined ATN 7

He moved to Visatone Production Studios at Bondi, housed in the old Cinesound
Studios where many of Australia's most
famous films had been produced

Two years later he joined the Commonwealth Film Unit at Lindfield in Sydney, as a cinematographer, shooting documentaries in Australia and Papua New Guinea on 35mm for theatre screening. 

In 1968 he was recruited by the Australian News and Information Bureau to establish a production unit for its newly formed television section and over the next 25 years produced hundreds of television films and videos for Australia's overseas information programs.

Eric Kenning was admitted to the ACS in 1963 and later established the ACT Branch, becoming its first President in 1968.

The branch established a sound reputation for its seminars and trade shows which culminated in the Colour 70 seminar held just before colour television started in Australia.

Name Change.
The name CVMC has now been changed to CVMC-Media, to reflect the new Media such as the internet, and electronic convention presentations using video DVD.
CVMC-Media Now an On-Line Studio. CVMC-Media is now an on-line post production service specialising in short promotional productions and video and audio makeover. You can send us your video or audio program and we will carry out the work and send you a preview version before making the final master.
Moving into the future. There’s no doubt that the technology of small video formats and computer multimedia has liberated business communications. The new technology produces amazing picture quality at a price only dreamed of a decade ago. Gone are the days of presenting a high cost corporate video in the boardroom. Now staff members can view a video production at their work-station piped through internal Internet or a business can create its own channel on YouTube.
