What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
*Please note, October 24th was the start date of this project, this project is live and you can get involved now. You need not be available on 7th to take part. Meet-up just forces a date to be on there. The entire project takes place from 24/10 to 24/01* If you are like many people, the last several months have been challenging, to say the least. If you are a creative person, with a passion for screenwriting, directing, acting, cinematography and such, then being constrained in such a manner can't have been fun. That's why we are returning later this month, with a programme to allow you to create, to direct, to act, whatever makes you feel most alive and happy. And meet people in person, in a safe way. We will be creating several different short film projects over the period of three months. These film projects have been selected from your submissions, and are listed below. If you want to take part, please email [masked] to get involved with which one(s) you want to take part in. 1. "Self Hatred" - Joe, a young Asian man, wakes up one morning to find out that something is very “wrong” and “disturbing” with his physical appearance. He calls his plastic surgeon, Dr Royce, who has transformed Joe into an Asian man; revealing that Joe was actually a white supremacist/neo-nazi with a history of racially motivated crime.... 2. The Tour - a tourist takes an unexpected tour around a city, learning strange facts and secrets in an unknown language - with an unknown final destination. Just another day's work for the tour guide. Surreal 3 minute improv-comedy. 3. A guide helps the dead make the perilous journey through a sunless landscape to Heaven. But tonight, he will have to take someone back. 4. A mourning small town mayor must convince a famous horror writer to stay for his writing retreat, not realising they will be at the centre of an occult occurrence similar to the ones he tells him about. 5. “Being” The story is about four people in a park who go about their daily lives without realizing the affect that they have on each other. Rules: Although there is no limit to the numbers joining groups, due to COVID, the number of people on shooting days will be kept to approximately 6 people. The film cannot involve physical touching and should use outdoor locations and physical distance between crew and cast, including masking up if not acting. Our existing film group has a wide variety of skills and equipment, allowing us to make accomplished short films. However, we could always do with more skills and equipment from new members. There is an energy that floods from within us when we engage fully and unreservedly with what we love to do. The ‘broken dam’ sensation that occurs when we fully engage, and the flood of ideas and creativity never seems to stop. It’s the feeling that we have when we get completely immersed in what we are doing, so we’re focusing all our attention on something that we want to experience. So experience it, and join us. Please note, there is a minimum £3 charge for joining a group. However this is not required before you join the group and can be collected later. All the money goes back into the project to help it grow.
