I agree that friendship or connections should play no part in judging and in my experience never have. No matter how we slice it different judges will often review the same film with totally different evaluations. Ned[/quote] I agree that friendship should play no part in judging.

[quote="Dave Watterson"]There's a lot of good sense in those remarks, Ian. A) judges are only human, not godlike B) I like the idea they are "more experienced public" C) film makers should accept / reject comments as they think fit D) judges are only one more opinion ... Yes, of course, judges are n...

Re: Shocking !

[quote="stingman"][quote="Willy"] a blind man would like to buy a flat..... If someone made a film about a balding young man (like me!) then I would not be offended. If you have a disability, then you can either mope around all your life or you can make the most of life and be happy... I would enjoy...

The AMPS definition is clear, the film must not be made for financial reward or expect to be rewarded at some later date. If a winning film goes on to commercial distribution then the award is forfeit and an announcement would be made in the AMPS newsletter. _________________________________________...

Hello Dave, Yes of course, also "Extension Event" and "Plan B" are on that DVD, the two British entries. Wonderful films. I had already seen them a few times before. In Chesterfield I think and also on a British DVD. The Belgians enjoyed the British humour in these films very much. I'm also happy to...

UNICA Films in our club

Last night I saw some UNICA films in my club. In Flanders you can hire a DVD with some UNICA films on it. Perhaps also in Britain. I am sure that Dave Watterson has seen the film. He was a judge in South Korea and also some other forum friends attended the world festival down under. The Dutch had ma...

[quote="ned c"]How do you train and test potential judges? Who judges the judges? What do I expect from a judge? They should be thoroughly versed in all aspects of film and be regular viewers of contemporary films. They don't have to be film makers but it helps if they are. _________________________...

Yes, Tom. You're right. Paragraphing makes it easier to read. I will think about it when writing messages.

One of the films I enjoyed most when making it was "Schola Europaea Symphony". I am sure that Dave and other friends remember that film. There was some discussion in Guernsey about it, but I had very good results at BIAFF and the "Lily Festival". The theme was : "The European Schools are communities...

Shocking !

I sometimes find inspiration for my one minute movies in cartoons made for an international cartoon festival in Belgium. "Sweetie" was one of them. The cartoonist was a Rumanian artist. Cartoonists from all over the world take part in that festival. Now I've made a new one minute movie based on a ca...

About Filmmaking

I absolutely agree with Tom and Peter, let's just have one group of correspondents, it's all to do with film making and we do need to talk more about the craft itself rather than bitch about how the IAC is run. Can someone act on this? About filmmaking. You're right, Michael. Here we are : At this ...
