Re: WIN.7 time and date display

How old is your PC? The most common cause of this in my experience is a dead CMOS battery (it's one of those CR2032 or similar batteries on the motherboard and can be easily replaced for about £1), but they don't normally die until the PC is at least 5 years old or so. When that is out of power, the...

Re: BIAFF 2015 entries

I received my results today, a 3 star and a 2 star. Reading the judges comments they are absolutely spot-on, and in the case of the 3-star, will hopefully be something to bear in mind in a follow-up production. My 2-star one was a film we made in the clubrooms one evening, so while the comments are ...

Re: BIAFF 2015 entries

While I do like the sound of your "A Plot Off the Internet" Tim, I fear it sounds like you have missed a trick there. In addition to extending the story before the punchline in order to feature everyone in the club, didn't you consider also extending it after the punchline, perhaps with an...

Re: BIAFF 2015 AND BEYOND

Living in Edinburgh, I have to smile when I hear people talking about Yorkshire and Lancashire as 'way up North'! My wife does it too! I guess it will always make sense to hold these events where the majority of the population is. A word of warning about the Norbreck Castle, Blackpool though - it's ...

Re: Club Showreel Exchange

Thanks for the comments, good to know that other clubs are also producing showreels. Of course, I should have mentioned, as I've suggested it, I volunteer to receive/distribute showreels if there are no objections. I'd probably make it an ECVS thing - using the Edinburgh Cine and Video Society as th...

Club Showreel Exchange

Hello, I've been a lurker on these boards for a while now, but this is my first post - so please be gentle! I know quite a lot of people aren't keen on lots of club nights spent just sitting around watching films, and prefer more hands-on events, and to be honest, I tend to agree with them, however ...
