Oh what a night…Early March in 2013

Erm…doesn’t quite work does it? Anyway last night was the Oscars and a good time was had by most – specifically Colin “Fox Whisperer” Jones and Barbara “Cakes” Darby who took home five and three awards respectively. I didn’t win anything but I have the judges names, all I need now is their addresses….

Speaking of the judges the three men from Epsom Film Makers, to whom we are grateful for taking the time to watch, comment and grade our films, are Norman Bull, John Gannaway and Ron Everitt, who were also in attendance last night and presented the top two awards of the evening. So a big thank you to them.

Up first were the three awards voted for internally (i.e within the club).

So there you have it. Congratulations to all the winners and commiserations but a hearty pat on the back to everyone who was nominated or entered a film.

Thanks again to the guys from Epsom Film Makers and perhaps next year we can chose judges who aren’t members of Colin’s family! Just joking Colin! 😉 and of course to Brenda Wheatley for another excellent job as competitions organiser!

Until next year……keeeeeeeep filming!!!

  1. Well done Lee for doing this so quickly – did you have a ‘secret’ list or stay up all night? Brenda will be keeping the Comps. job, all organised so smoothly, well done to you. (And a few gents. also helped of course)

  2. Nice write-up Lee.
    I thought it was a great evening with barely a hiccup (curse those tiny little remote control buttons!)
    Some FAB outfits on show too…take a bow Jim!

    1. Actually I’d rather Jim didn’t take a bow in case he revealed more than he intended to!

      I am one of the few people who ISN’T interested in what a Scotsman wears under his kilt!

  3. Yes well done Lee especially to have got the information out so quickly.

    Now all I want are the DVDs of the winners and runners up and infact all of the competition entries so that I can up date the archive

  4. We should also say a big ‘WELL DONE’ to Simon for compiling the Oscars show. This is no small task, having done it for 3 years, so we should say thanks to Simon for doing a great job this year. For reasons that could not be forseen, Simon had only a very short time to select the clips and put them together – and add the little sound effects which we all enjoyed.
    Great Job!!
