My usual round up from our last meeting on Friday 1stJune.
It was another good night. A quarterly competition as well as the ‘shortcuts’.
The shortcuts theme was ‘Danger’, and, as usual, there were quite different interpretations..Gary H showed how we can be taken over by drones. Real Star Wars stuff this. He did recover from the attack to show the footage. (should that be ‘metreage’?).
John Bishop gave us real life danger. Some guy had a Croc and snakes in the bath – with him. We went on to see a big croc take another. Probably easier than grabbing meat off a dangling line.
Kevin brought to the fore how many ‘danger’ signs we have to deal with almost every day, and finally,
A small group filmed a search for a spider named Boris. The poor Tarantula looked awfully flat on the back of its distraught owner.
The next shortcuts theme is ‘The Meaning of Life’. Go to it.
Then on to our competition.
There were ten entries with a wide range of topics. One member (and I shan’t mention your name Richard) had four entries and co-operated in a couple of others. Who said crikey? I’m sure that was a first for the Club!
One movie challenged that famous one ‘The Plank’. I want to know who played Charlie Drake?
Others included an Interview, a look at Olinda Falls, a story about Dementia, a singer, and a new look at events on the Titanic.
Thanks to everyone who entered.
Thanks also to Ron and Richard for driving the mechanisms, and to Lloyd for sitting in and learning about the process. Look out for another volunteer next meeting.
Brian managed to coax some of your hard earned cash from your pockets and, once again, Mrs Hallford (Joan), struck a bargain with Geoff to get into the kitchen. Thank you all.
What impressed me on the night was the obvious co-operation between members in producing movies. This should auger well for the groups, but I think some are having difficulty in getting started.
Come on folks, It only needs a little idea, and a lot of enthusiasm.
At our next meeting John Millard will be talking about commentaries. Perhaps a chance for some interactive discussion.
That will be followed by the large numbers of short promotion movies you have prepared – won’t it?
Movie of the year is fast approaching, as is the Grand Finale to our Club year. Keep the dates free.
A variety of our members, including Jack who photo appears above provide updates for our journals to keep you up to date if you missed a meeting.
