Nuneaton Moviemakers Guest speakers ...
8th April 2021, 7.30pm - 9.00pm
Jayne Slater, professional film maker in the East Midlands, joined us for an interesting and engaging talk recently. Jane was one of a series of guest speakers who have been kind enough to give up their time for us.
Don't worry if you missed it, you can see a recording of the event here ...
Nuneaton Annual Competition
Nuneaton Moviemakers annual competition still went ahead this year, albeit it in a different way to previous years. Geof Caudwell kindly agreed to be our guest judge and despite the lockdown we had eleven films entered. Geof will be provided his critique over live link.
As for the script competition, well we'll have to wait and see as as usual Geof will have the Christmas break to make the decision. No annual dinner though in January for obvious reasons, so watch this space.
Best Movie - 'Set Fair' - Alan Atkinson
Best Sound - 'Watch the Birdie' - Gerry Bishop
Highly Commended - 'Birmingham 2020' - Patrick Woodcock
We are recruiting ...
