Club meetings cancelled – update as at 18th March 2020
In line with government guidance regarding Covid-19, the club has reluctantly had to take the decision to cancel all monthly Wednesday club meetings until further notice.
This is SOUTH DOWNS FILM MAKERS
We are an friendly enthusiastic film-making club, making Drama, Documentary and Comedy films for amateur film competitions and the community generally.
We meet at Ferring Village Hall throughout the year, usually on the third Wednesday of the month. Today, we have around 30 members who meet at this venue to participate in an interesting programme of activities for our members. (See the Events Calendar for programme details).
The club’s aims are:
- To encourage interest in film making as a hobby (Drama, Documentary & Comedy)
- To help increase the knowledge and technical ability of our members
- To have fun and build friendships
The club is fortunate in owning two semi-professional Panasonic cameras and tripods, two pairs of Sennheiser EW112P-G4-GB radio mics, which are available for use in club productions. We also have a range of other equipment – including portable LED panel lights, microphones, royalty-free music, all of which are available for members’ use, free of charge.
Several competitions are held throughout the year to encourage film making amongst our members. Some competitions are internal and others external where club films are entered into competition against those of other clubs, both regionally, nationally and even internationally.
The club regularly provides film-shows to local groups in the community e.g. WI, church and social groups etc.
Our club magazine – ‘Freeze Frame’
Our club magazine, ‘Freeze Frame’, is published bi-monthly and contains information on current affairs in the club, details of productions in progress and news of up-coming events.
Potential new members are always welcome to come along and join us for an evening. For more information please call Roy Powell, telephone: 01903 266606.
