Okay folks we are ready for the first round of the TOP TEN 2019 competition!
The Top Ten is open to everyone in OVFM to submit a film, no longer than 20 minutes on any subject, style or genre, which will be judged and graded by their peers. The ten films that have accrued the highest scores by the end of the five individual rounds will be entered into the final in January 2020 and the winner will be announced at the Oscars in March.
Due to the number of club members taking a slight drop over the last year due to ill-health and some unfortunate passings, the committee have decided to maximise the number of responses for this year’s competition by holding just two rounds, which means more entrants per round.
The scoring sheet has also undergone a change for this year, which you can read and download HERE.
Last year Sam Brown was our Top Ten winner with Beyond The Sunset making him our defending champion for this year’s competition. Will Sam reign supreme for a second year in a row or will someone else claim the trophy at next year’s Oscars?
Here are the club members who have been selected at random to participate in this opening round:
Andy and Marian Watson
Jim and Fran Morton-Robertson
Brenda and Roger Wheatley
Remember if you have a film ready and it is not your round yet please let us know below and bring it with you to the meeting – it will help make up any shortfall in submissions.
As always we ask you to PLEASE reply to this post in the comments below, if you have a film ready and letting us know the following important information :
Format (DVD, Blu-ray, USB)
Picture ratio (4:3 or 16:9).
Similarly please reply below if you can’t make this round and we’ll accommodate your film in a future round. It is very important and helpful to know these things ahead of time to ensure we have the right equipment for playing your films and so we know in advance how much time we have to discuss all the films shown if there is a huge response. It’s a simple courtesy we are asking of you and it only takes a few seconds to comply.
And that is it. Join us on Tuesday for the opening round of the 2019 Top Ten!
Thank you for reading and good luck to everyone who enters a film!
