OVFM Club Meeting Tuesday May 8th 2012


Mike & Jo Coad’s “An Asian Adventure”


I’m not going to tell about this week’s club meeting….because I’m leaving it up to Mike Coad to do the honours since he and his other half Jo are hosting the evening. So, take it away Mike:

“The committee first approached us about 5 years ago to give a talk on our trip around Asia but at that time we had so much else going on, we had no time to prepare. We were approached again last year to give a talk this May and have put together a Powerpoint presentation called ‘An Asian Adventure’.

Whilst writing up the presentation, it soon became clear that we couldn’t possibly cover the whole trip in one evening so we will cover as much as time will allow and if members want us to, we can always continue the saga at some future date.

Obviously, we are a film club and this evening is not ‘film related’ so we realise it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. However, we will be delighted to see as many members as can make it to the meeting. If nothing else, it’ll help you decide whether you should opt for Islamabad or Lahore for your next holiday.”

Thanks Mike.

From seeing some of Mike and Jo’s previous films about Asia – including the excellent and powerful piece about year Zero in Cambodia – we should be in for a visual treat.

See you then!

  1. Thanks to Mike and Jo for their presentation last night which was interesting and full of good humour – especially the traditional mis-translated English signs from our Asian cousins! 🙂

  2. I agree Lee, a really fascinating evening. Well done Mike (and Jo).

    ps. I love the graphics Lee. Animate those and you’ve got yourself a sure fire trophy winner.
    That’s YOUR Top Ten entry sorted, now all I’ve got to do is organize mine!
