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

  • Improve your skills.
  • Never made a film? Start here!

  • Open Video Cup.

Not Just an Airport” was made by Club Member Roger Lawrie, and won the 2015 Holiday Video Competition.

“The Decision” was made by a group of SCMM Members.  Written, directed and edited by Club Member Julian Austwick.  “The Decision” has won two regional competitions: The Midland Movie Makers Tony Rose Trophy and the Gemini Trophy.

Do you make films? Or would you like to? Holidays are a great time for filming. This film was made using a GoPro camera.

Getting together to make more ambitious films is very enjoyable and an excellent way to learn.

Making Your Own Films Is Fun
