THE RESULTS

Hello and welcome to the annual OVFM Oscars Results report.

The 2014 OVFM Oscars took place in front of a bored audience at the Barnard Room, St Augustine’s Church on a somewhat chilly night but that didn’t stop them dressing up in their best glad rags for the events. Actually it did stop a few of them – names have been noted and the lads will be round later to “have a word”….

We were fortunate enough to be joined by two of the judges from Haywards Heath Movie Makers Ron Prosser and David Fenn while third judge Rod Willerton clearly had something better to do. Hope those toenails are now nice and neat Rod! Ron and David seemed to enjoy themselves – assuming banging your head against the wall screaming “get me out of here” is a Haywards Heath way of expressing pleasure that is!

As is the case in many awards ceremony one film or filmmaker will often dominate the voting usually leading to commensurate rewards. This year it was our chairman Simon “Snapper” Earwicker who was the big winner, taking home almost every award except for Best Hair, Best Costume, Best Use Of A Pineapple and Best Film Not In The Martian Language.

    Thanks for the post Lee.
    And a HUGE thank you to Roger for the brilliant photographs.
    You’ve managed to capture in full living colour the fashion show that is the OVFM Oscar Night.
    Check-out those bow ties! Especially Mike Shaw…now we know what Kodachrome was invented for!
    Retro reference for the old school photographers out there. For you youngsters we’re talking of the era when the Big Yellow meant Kodak and you had to wait a fortnight before you knew if your picture had come out all right…ahh happy days!
