Midsummer Movie Madness

Midsummer Movie Madness organised by CEMRIAC
Loved by some, loathed by others - however you feel about it we did it again.  This year ran as a weekend - online event. 10 minute maximum running time. Making & Editing: 25th June & 24th June, (up to 6.00pm)
Film Show: 26th June 7pm


This year’s themes were “Secret” and “If in Doubt”. We chose the former. A Saturday morning Zoom session was arranged to discuss possibilities and we settled on a rough idea for the story. That afternoon a couple of us worked on props and put together a first draft of the script. It involved a man searching for treasure left by a deceased relative and, being a Nuneaton film, was scripted in a light-hearted style. Sunday morning, and five of us (Geoff, Gerry, Gordon, Jackie and myself) gathered to start filming. It began indoors and then moved to the garden. Three cameras were used, to get a range of angles. Shortly after lunch, we began editing. For safety, we doubled up and used two different computers, each aiming for a complete version of the film. Plenty of time to get it finished, we naïvely thought.

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
