OVFM CLUB MEETING TUESDAY February 18th

 

RUBBISH

 

It is time to see what you have to share with us regarding our first Film to a Theme project for 2020. I’m sure interest was piqued when we announced this project two months ago, and you have all been busy making something relevant to the theme of Rubbish – makybe you even deliberately made a bad film to suit the rubric (not that anyone in OVFM would make a bad film, 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 is preferred, 1080p maximum) 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 reading and we look forward to seeing your films on Tuesday!

  3. Good morning,

    I will be bringing a short film, about 1 min long, called ‘Dirty’. On a USB, usual encoding.

    I filmed it yesterday morning before work, and edited it in the evening. It’s a very rough edit, and to call it rubbish is being kind!

  4. Well, last night certainly a load of rubbish – literally. Once again, club members took a theme and shared with us a number of films offering different interpretations of this theme .

    The night actually opened with a film from our Holiday Films evening which we couldn’t show for technical reasons, “A Tour of Balkan Campsites” by Kath Goodwin.

    Kicking off the Rubbish themed films was a selection from the archive beginning with “Petts Wood Clean Up” by Annabelle Lancaster, then “Rubbish Tip” by Andy Watson and “Station Road Car Park” from Derek Allen.

    John & Ann Epton provided our first new film with “Canal Clean up”, as did Mandy Carr with “Rubbish” (about a man who restores of junk into working items), “Wheelie Bin” by John Bunce, (including an appearance from an old friend) and “Dirty” by David Roman-Halliday, in which empty food tins and cartoons told rude jokes.

    More archive hits came courtesy of Barbara Darby with “Our Son” and “Fire”, and another entry from Reg & Annabelle Lancaster with “This Sceptered Isle”. We even had a film from (ewww) another club, via Colin jones, who shared “Total Rubbish” by Peter McPhearson with us.

    Our chair Jane Oliver was the most prominent respondee of the evening, with four films – “Dirt?”, “Ramsgate Tunnel”, “Last Date” and “Ambiguous Art”, all offering a different perspective on the topic.

    And with the weather being utterly horrid all night, this was a perfectly awful evening! 😛
