What do we do during the meetings of the Wanstead and Woodford Movie Makers?
First, we have to decide what the aims of the club are since they are not written down anywhere. Clearly with the title of Movie Makers our priority must be to encourage film making and to this end we try to suggest ways of generating enthusiasm among all members and not just those with a camera.
For the rest of the programme there are evenings devoted to expanding our knowledge of the way filming is going in the future when two of our expert film makers will be talking to us about their latest exploits and gadgets. These evenings are more useful than just going to exhibitions where no-one has the time to talk to you in depth.
Something new, throughout the year we have set aside time for members to show favourite videos they have downloaded from the internet, contributors include Terry Church, Keith Morgan, Terry Luxford, Fred Aiano, Mike Hobbs, Joan/Eddie Moody, Martin Page, and Arthur Gatcum. Just about everyone.
