Who We Are
We are a group of friendly enthusiastic film makers. We make films for fun. We enjoy working on our own personal projects and/or Club films made collectively with other Club members. We recognise that each member has his or her own interests.
We celebrate each other’s abilities, and enjoy learning from each other.
We have "makers", "watchers", and "boffins" in the club. (The latter enjoy the technicalities of the art.)
Not all members have equipment, or even make films. Some enjoy seeing what others can do and will help in any way they can.
Members have a wide range of abilities and all of us realise that we were all beginners once. With the help and encouragement available, new members soon learn to create more satisfying productions, and even compete in Club and outside competitions.
Learn, Make, Share
“The Awful Truth” was created in a day! A team of six SCMM members (Andy Wills, Ann Fletcher, Arthur Fletcher, Fiona Dunn, Ian Lane and Julian Austwick) conceived the story and made the film in a day as part of the Midland Movie Makers Midsummer Madness event. It WON the competition, beating 9 other teams,including two other SCMM teams.
Getting together to make films is very enjoyable and an excellent way to learn.
Making Films Together Is Fun
