Club film making has necessarily been curtailed due to the pandemic restrictions. However this last 2021 summer, 2 films about Arundel were made by club members as part of the club’s ‘Summer Shoot’ internal film competition.
Also individuals have been making their own Covid films and been using the time to edit some of the many hours of footage waiting for the treatment.
Although the epic Worthing Community Chest film was completed, its premiere at the Dome cinema could not take place, and so had to be held on Zoom with club members and representatives from the Community Chest enjoying the film on the not-so-big screen. It is still hoped that a big-screen showing might still take place at some time during 2022.
A number of completed club films were entered into ‘virtual’ film competitions with some considerable success, which has been noted in the website blogs.
Scripts are always being sought for both club and personal film productions. Do you have any ideas for stories that could be filmed by the club? Do you know anybody who may be interested in acting in our films? Whilst we have a few members who are willing to (and capable of) acting, we often struggle with obtaining actors (of the right age) for our productions.
Are you interested in directing, or helping with productions? Members will be offered the opportunity of helping in some capacity with the making of the films. This could be anything from pre-production activities including finances, storyboarding, shooting schedules in conjunction with the producer and director, through to acting and crewing with all the various types of roles required here. If you are interested, then please get in touch and let us know.
