Leeds Indie Fimmakers are a group of independent filmmakers in Leeds. The intention of the group is to get films made with profesionals and students along with talented amateurs helping those with less experience and perhaps enlarging their own experience at the same time.The aim is to teach,learn have fun but mainly make movies.
If you have any skills from directing to dressmaking and are willing to give of your time please join and make yourself known, your skills are highly valued. Or if you wish to learn, put yourself forward and join in one of our projects. There is always something being worked on at one stage of production or another.
We will have regular production meetings where members can come and put their ideas forward or ask for help with casting, directing, writing their ownscripts and getting crews for making films.
We really do need able heads of departments e.g. Directors of Photography, Assistant Directors, Sound etc
If you feel you can fill any of these roles in a production please make yourself known to the organisers.
Our other main project is an improvisation group every week with the aim of improving acting skills and keeping our actors in contact with each other. Hopefully, ultimately, to make a film that will be entirely improvised.
Whatever your level of skill is please put yourself forward to take part in someone else's project or take the plunge and make a film of your own,we are here to help and give support.
We also have regular socials for getting to know each other and just having fun come along...honestly we are a nice group of people.
Occasionally we need to have fund raisers so that there is at least a small amount of cash to help with our projects. It is a constant problem getting enough money together to keep up our production levels.
We exist to help members take part in or lead their own productions. At present this group is not offering paid work, we welcome profesionals to help those with less experience, to pass on knowledge and to guide, plus take their experience to a new level or experiment where they wouldn't usually get the chance.
So if you want to make movies ,write screenplays, cartoons, act, direct, edit, do sound or photography, build scenery, scout for locations, produce, source props.........the list is endless. We can use so many talents......join us and let's make movies.
You never know where the movie may end up.
I really look forward to meeting you......we can't make films if you all sit at home !! It's is fun and all effort is truly appreciated. Marilyn
