Eastbourne Moviemakers

THE TWO club meetings in November consisted mainly of watching films and the results of a member’s ‘filming on location’ evening, which entailed a visit to Lullington Manor last July, were shown.

Despite the six films all featuring the same group of actors playing out a series of pre-set scenes, there was considerable variation in the way members had edited their films, and the choice of background music also influenced the final effect. The results proved very entertaining, and brought back memories of a busy yet very pleasant evening spent filming in the garden of the Manor.

The second meeting, which was very well attended, gave members a chance to see a show-reel compiled by Morecombe Bay Moviemakers. Films included a documentary about the Kendal Mountain Rescue Team, the work of a Lakeland potter, a boxing club for youngsters, and an amusing spoof film based on the TV programme Antiques Road Show. After the customary tea break two films by member Jim Cornhill were shown.

The next club evening will feature local media/film lecturer Steve Hopper talking about some of the techniques in successful film making.
