So it’s freezing cold here in old Blighty at the moment and some of us have had some of the old white stuff get up our noses (no not THAT!) but that isn’t the case for other countries around this big old world of ours as some tend to enjoy periods of prolonged sunshine. And some of our OVFM members tend to take their cameras with them whenever they pay a visit to these sun soaked locales to record the sights and sounds of their time spent in these wondrous places.
Others of you prefer to traipse around the soggy grounds of our fair countryside or subject yourselves to similarly cold and icy climates for your overseas holiday excursions and film these too – that’s fine too (I guess, it’s not for to judge you bunch of weirdoes!).
And the “M” in OVFM wouldn’t stand for “masochists” if we didn’t set aside at least one of our club meetings to view the results of your holiday filming, which is exactly what this week’s meeting is for. So, if you’ve been out and about in the name of leisure and relaxation recently and captured some of your exploits on film/tape/miniDV/whatever then bring them along to the meeting and we’ll do our best to feign interest as always.
Please note that films must not exceed 10 minutes in length.
If you are bringing a film could you please reply to this post below and could we also ask that when films are submitted you include your name, the title, picture ratio (16:9 or 4:3) and running time somewhere on the discs/cover? It’s a huge help for the club’s film and archive records. And if you have any specific instructions re: sound please let the projectionist know ahead of time. Many thanks.
Finally, can any trophy winners in last year’s Annual Competition please bring their trophies with them to this meeting or on February 6th BY THE LATEST as Brenda Wheatley needs them to have the names of this year’s winners engraved on them.
See you on Tuesday and we all look forward to sleeping throu….er…seeing your films!*
