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!
  • Enjoy the company of like minded people.
  • Have fun making movies together.
  • Show your own movies to the club members and discover the pleasure of having an appreciative audience.
  • We have competitions to suit all members:
  • One minute movies,
  • Five minute movies,
  • Script writing,
  • Video to music,
  • Holiday movies,
  • Open Video Cup.

“The Letter” was written and directed by Arthur and Ann Fletcher, who also starred in it.  They were assisted by other members of of SCMM: Alan Moore, Andy Wills and Kevin Edwards.  “The Letter” was the winner of the CEMRIAC Autumn Festival Inter-Club competition 2015. (Video may not be available on mobile phones or tablets.)

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

The Letter

A Film in a Day

Every year SCMM members take part in a fun event where we make a film in a day. In 2015 we had two teams.
