What we have done. in 2023
The Spring saw a burst of energy from the members following their hibernation, which ended in early March. Perhaps it was the change from Wednesday evenings to Tuesday afternoons that sparked enthusiasm, or perhaps it was viewing the results of members’ efforts at filming events at the time of the late Queen’s Jubilee. Willingdon residents, and Alfriston villagers enjoying their respective street parties, Uckfield’s Town Crier in full voice. Eastbourne’s colourful Carnival, and the lighting of a Beacon at Hove were all edited with joyful classical music to bring back enjoyable memories.
Two further meetings included: guidance on Titling and Credits, watching a selection of films from various ‘show reels’, and sharing ideas on how best to promote the Club.
The most recent activity has been planning, and then filming some actors, two dressed as seagulls! On a recent Sunday morning at the quieter part of Bexhill seafront, the film crew and other members were challenged in ways that filming ‘on location’ demands. With some artistic editing, the film will be ready for a competition due at the end of June.
