Spring 2018

Well here we are in May and Spring has finally sprung.  Time to be out and about with those camcorders, cameras, and these days even smart phones, capturing it all.

Cheltenham Videomakers.

We were saddened to learn that the Cheltenham Club has had to close but every cloud has a silver lining and we are pleased to welcome several ex-Cheltenham members to our club.  Lynne Garner has already made her mark by winning the Holiday and Travelogue Competition with her film about the Galapagos Islands.


BIAFF 2017

We submitted our club film about the Order of St John Care Home at Brockworth to the 2017 BIAFF competition where it was awarded two stars.

Another entry in the competition was submitted by former club member Robert Paget and it received a three star award. We are pleased that Robert has also re-joined Gloucester Film Makers and at the meeting in May he gave us a useful talk and presentation on recording narration.

We have had several competitions to date and congratulations are due to those who won (see Winners tab) but also to the others who didn’t win but took time to make and submit films.

In June we are having a practical session on filming with a drone and members are encouraged to bring their camcorders to make a film about it to be entered in a competition following the AGM in November.

Footage from the drones will be made available to members for them to use.

Details of time and place will be published shortly.

If you have any archive film of Gloucester or Gloucestershire we would be glad of it for our public show in October.

Finally, as you go off on your summer holidays don’t forget to capture them on video !
