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
“Out of the Past” was written, directed and edited by Ian Reed, who also plays a role in it. Ian was assisted by many members of SCMM including Andy Wills and Arthur Fletcher on Camera and Kevin Edwards doing the sound. Actors were drawn from SCMM and from outside. “Out of the Past” was a finalist in the 2015 North vs South Competition.
Getting together to make more ambitious films is very enjoyable and an excellent way to learn.
Making Films Together Is Fun
