Who We Are


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.



We can look forward to two members’ presentations on 8th January. Grahame Tench will be discussing the history of 8mm Cine Cameras and comparing them to his digital camcorder.  Gordon Hunt will explain his home made telecine machine and how it works.  Hopefully he will show us some successful transfers from cine film to digital video. The closing date for design of the new SCMM Logo is extended to 8th January.
