NEXT OVFM CLUB MEETING – Tuesday February 5th

IF ONLY I COULD REMEMBER

+

HOLIDAY FILMS

Time sure flies, doesn’t it? It was only two months ago we first announced this Film To A Theme topic and here we are already for the screening evening. It’s not the easiest subject to come up with something but this is OVFM and we usually find a way to make these projects work.

As well as getting to share you hard work and creativity with the rest of the club in response to this project, this is a double header meeting if you will, as we also invite members to submit their holiday films for screening as per the annual start of the year tradition. We also ask that these films are no longer than 5 minutes in length which should be ample to show off how good a time you had and to remind us of what sunshine looks like during this cold winter months!

Remember, this is not a competition evening so these films won’t be judged but if you want feedback or constructive criticism, we will happily oblige, time permitting of course.

As usual we ask a little cooperation from everyone bringing a film to the meeting to PLEASE REPLY TO THIS POST in the comments/reply section below, letting us know the film’s run time, media format (DVD, Blu-ray, USB/Memory stick), file format if using the latter (MP4, MKV, AVI, etc.) and picture ratio (4:3 or 16:9). This is a great help for us when planning the evening out and helping things run smoothly so if you could do us this courtesy it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for heading and we look forward to seeing your latest gems on Tuesday!

    1. Well, leave it for now. I have been checking with the Committee but it seems there is confusion about the ruling as some think it was set to 10 minutes, so we’ll let it be until it is clarified then the Legion Of Doom can enforce it for next year. 🙂

  1. We will bring one holiday film of less than 6 minutes, 16:9 on a memory stick.
    We may bring a memory film on a stick. It will be 4:3.

  2. Just to tell you I am bringing a 3ish min. short holiday film.
    This is not a comment but I could not find a place where to tell you that I am bringing a film. Sorry, Lee.

  3. I will bring two; one on each subject; both on memory stick, no other files on stick, both 16:9, stereo, MP4, both have a 3 second blank leader as requested.

    1. ‘If only I could remember’ – 30 seconds
    2. ‘Lighting up Christmas’ = 4 minutes 12 seconds (Holiday)

  4. Last night saw 14 entries in response to the two topics for this meeting, six for the Film to a Theme project and 8 holiday films.

    For the theme “If Only I Could Remember”, we kicked off with Jane Oliver’s (really) short of the same name featuring a forgetful war veteran. Colin Jones provided two films – “Team Work” from the archives and a new film “Memories of…?”.

    Jim Morton-Robertson and his wife serenaded us with a song in “I Remember It Well”, followed by fellow Kemsing Mafia member Barbara Darby with “Big Day Ahead” Another film from the archive by Linda Pearson “Tablets Of The Memory” closed this half of the evening.

    The Holiday film segment began with Jane Oliver’s “Lighting Up Christmas” featuring a festively decorated steam train, whilst John and Ann Epton continued the train motif with “Steam 2”.

    Barbara Walker paid a “Visit To Japan” while across the way Barbara Darby gave us a “Taste Of China before sharing with us her “Memories Of Cost Rica”. There were two trips to Peru courtesy of Andy Watson and Brian Pfeiffer, then jim Morton-Robertson introduced us to German inventor “Deitmer”.

    A nice turnout of films to start the year, let’s see if we can continue this trend!

  5. A really good response to both themes. Well done to everyone who brought a film along to share. Thanks to Andy our projectionist, who still hasn’t lost all his hair! … and to those who help setting up and clearing away.

    Not forgetting all those who have chipped in to help with the refreshments. Your work is appreciated and doesn’t go unnoticed. Thank you.

    Lee, thank you for your ‘post’ detailing the evening.
