Re: FVM MAGAZINE - FEBRUARY 2019

I know what you mean, Cathy, but officers are always reluctant to get into long discussions on the forum, which can sometimes turn nasty. Bear in mind that there is a small team of people working on the committee and they are having to run BIAFF themselves this year. With the judging weekend coming ...

I have not heard any more, Tom. He should be able to post here himself now.

Re: Happy 2019

Languages! Aaargh. In my role as President of UNICA I have to make sure that everything is in English, French and German. (That tells you where the UNICA organisation started.) But in practice I also get messages in other European languages, in Korean, in Russian, in Georgian, in Macedonian and more...

Re: Suggested One Minute films

Take a visit to www.unica-web.com and at the bottom right of the home page are links to films from various years. On most annual groups there you can find a selection of WMMC film - which took part in the World Minute Movie Cup. https://filmschoolrejects.com/10-fantastic-short-films-that-are-only-a-...

Thanks, Richard, for making this available to us all ... and thanks David Andrew for making it.

We lost a lot, when we lost Val.

Re: FVM Editor

I usually do read it all, Peter. Our copy arrived two days ago and it was only there, that I learned of your stroke. Jan and I send you our best wishes for a full recovery - and the patience to keep your energy under control until you have recovered! There is a time-delay involved in any magazine pr...

Mini-DV into Edius Pro 7

I took some mini DV tape in 1998 and have been asked if I could resurrect
it and put it into Edius 7 Pro but all my efforts have failed. Please help

The tape was taken on a Panasonic NV-DS-150

Re: FVM Editor

I don't have any official info, but I understand that after Garth finishes in April there will be an interim arrangement with more than one person involved - presumably sharing some of the work he does.

Re: THE BIRMINGHAM FILM FESTIVAL

Very late response to a comment from Michael Slowe in this thread.
Withoutabox will be operational through the next festival season, but be disabled on September 16, 2019.

The surviving service on similar lines is FilmFreeway.

Re: "Will 'Ye Go to Flanders" screened to commemorate the end of WWI

It is right and fitting, that your film should be shown - especially this year. I am sure, that all of those 200 people were moved. The screening tomorrow will doubtless also go well.

And thanks for the great news that this year's BIAFF will have a Willy entry!

Re: Paul Kittel Documentary Sunday 28th October 2018

I can only say "here! here!" to the comments on Paul. I was not at the AGM event but have had the pleasure of meeting him on other occasions. The second film of his I ever saw was a tribute to his father called "AN AMATEUR AUTEUR". The first was an animation, whose title I cannot recall, which featu...

Re: Public liability insurance

Phew!

Thanks for the update and the tip, Peter. Let us hope that none of us has to call on such insurance.
