And so we enter the final stretch of 2019 with our last regular meeting of the year, the final round of our annual club competition films!
Offering club members a chance to test their creativity in three separate categories that pay tribute to past club members, this is one of the more unique and interesting challenges in our programme. As ever, the three prizes up for grabs are:
Kath Jones Cup – A joke film with a punchline no longer than 5 minutes in length.
Mike Turner Plate – A film on any subject or style no longer than 60 seconds in length.
Vic Treen Trophy – A film set to music
The rules for each of these can be found HERE which we ask you to adhere to, otherwise the subject matter of your film is entirely in your hands, and you can enter a film for one, two or all three categories.
Last year 15 entries submitted, just two below 2017’s record breaking total, but as we have seen the remits of three different categories usually ensures a healthy response from the collective creative hive of OVFM members.
Now the bit everyone seems to ignore – if you are bringing a film this week it would be very much appreciated if you could PLEASE REPLY TO THIS POST in the comments/reply section below, letting us know the following information:
Format (DVD, Blu-ray, USB Stick)
File Format and Resolution (MP4 -1080p etc)
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 affording us this courtesy will help get you into Santa’s good books just in time Christmas.
Also, members are reminded to consider their entries to the Annual Competition. We hope the newly updated entry forms will have been approved by the Committee and ready to be handed out at this meeting, whilst the final date for entries is the first meeting of 2020, which is the Top Ten Final on January 7th.
Thanks for reading and good luck to all who enter a film/films.
