When I was very young, my Dad once said to me “If you don’t ask, you don’t learn”, which confused me because when I asked him where babies came from he clipped me round the ear and told me to mind my own business! Of course as we get older we learn the right questions to ask for minimum embarrassment and maximum reward on the knowledge front. Unless it’s Prime Minister’s Question Time in which you get procrastination, evasion and bullplop!
What has this got to do with OFVM? We are always learning new things in the world of filmmaking and some of us have knowledge and experience in various where others may lack. So each year we gather together those with the mightiest databanks of filmmaking information, tips and helpful hints stored away inside their craniums and crack them open to ensure we all benefit from this imparted wisdom en route to applying them in our future film making endeavours.
So, if you have a burning question about filmmaking you’ve always wanted an answer to then I’m sure you will get it when we get together this Tuesday and you get your chance to pick the brains of OVFM’s finest – or whoever turns up on the night. Beggars can’t be choosers you know!
