“Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends”
A new year means a new start for the annual Top Ten competition aka the “Barbara Darby Hands Off That’s Mine” award!
Once again the names of all OVFM club members have been put into the hat belonging to our competitions organiser Brenda Wheatley and drawn in random to make up the participants for each of the five rounds that will take place between now and the end of the year, leading to the final in January 2015.
Remember that each film has a 20 minute time limit but can be on any subject and in any style. If you have a film from the past which has undergone a significant revamp (perhaps a new soundtrack, remixed sound, improved titling, tighter editing, extended or redacted cut etc. you are also welcome to re-submit these as your official entry.
And you can team up with your fellow club members if you need help on the technical or casting front, it will be the author of the script/concept who gets the entry credit.
The breakdown of the rounds and the selected members for each date is thus:
ROUND 1 – 27th May
Ann & John Epton
Mike & Jo Coad
ROUND 2 – 8th July
Richard & Jess Pugh
ROUND 3 – 19th August
Roger & Brenda Wheatley
ROUND 4 – 16th September
Andy & Marian Watson
Mo & Peter Lodge
Jim Morton Robertson
Harold & Maisie Trill
ROUND 5 – 14th October
Barbara J. Darby
As ever if you can’t make your designated round be sure to let Brenda know ahead of time or you have a film ready early, please bring it along as chances are it will be welcomed for screening time permitting.
So, get filming and we look forward to seeing what gems you have in store for us in 2014.
