Re: ENHANCED DBS CHECKS

You are absolutely right, Jill. You cannot apply as an individual. I've filmed where schools have done it on my behalf (yes, it costs them) and it is only valid for the organisation that has applied. Martine and I have considered setting ourselves up as a company simply so we can apply for DBS check...

Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

2)The comments in this thread - I hope a Council member or a Forum member can summarise this discussion for the next issue of FVM so that it will be read by many more members. If no-one has time, I'll volunteer. I, for one, am very disappointed that there was no mention of this very interesting thr...

Re: SW Utah Horrofest

Working my way through them. Thanks for sharing Ned. When I saw "horror" I immediately turned off as the genre does nothing for me and I was expecting a bit of a gorefest, but from what I've seen so far, it appears to be much more psychological horror than blood & guts. There are certainly some very...

Re: Da Vinci Resolve 15 & possibly 16

At the risk of going off topic, thanks Michael. The split screen in this instance is supposed to conjour up the idea of seaside postcards but also allowed me to crop in or use lower resolution footage of choirs which came from various sources. One such source for a couple of choir shots (no problems...

Re: Da Vinci Resolve 15 & possibly 16

I've used it and like the workflow. I struggled with it (and gave up) for a 2hr theatrical production, but I put this down to lack of perseverance and the fact I've used Vegas for 14 years. I did not find it as good as Vegas for audio (then again, I don't think anything is as good as Vegas for audio...

Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

I'm not sure becoming a 'members-only' club would help, because the same issues apply. My only reason for suggesting that was that I was under the impression (from comments from the Council at AGMs I have attended) that the few suggetions from the floor were quashed due to the fact they would been ...

Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

You make good points, John, and I'm sure I'm not alone in remembering you making them before. Admittedly I've only attended a few AGMs but as I understand it, whilst we may be struggling year on year with funding, we actually have a lot of money in the bank. The question must be how best to invest t...

Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

Contributors to this forum thread may genuinely believe the 'competition culture' is inclusive for all, but I say it is not -- as I have previously explained why. Jameela, you are inferring something from what you have read without justification. What I, and others, have said here is not that the "...

If we took notice of the non-competitive Glastonbury Festival, we might actually be able to go big and make some money, thereby have several paid staff!
It's almost as if you haven't read John Roberts' response (point 6) in this thread.

Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

Well worth discussing all of those, Ned. I presume you mean pay for the Director of Festivals from the cost of producing the magazine, rather than the editor. If we move the magazine online - which would have a much higher visibility than BIAFF - in my view it is essential we have expertise in a pai...

Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

I think Jameela and I are never going to agree about "hobby". I think she has a very different perception of the word than I and everyone I've discussed it with. As for "serious" ... thousands of hobbyist astronomers around the world continue to contribute enormous amounts to our understanding of wh...

Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

I do think the word "hobby" is a problem! You need to see it how younger people will see it... Old folks doing their hobby! I think the problem with that phrase is "old folks" rather than hobby. They feel, with some justification, that if we "old folks" had been any good at our hobby we'd have made...

Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

Ground rules; in an age of increasing rudeness a requirement for for mutual respect is not out of place. On one of our local film making Facebook pages the opening statement is "Be kind...." I don't object to that, Ned. That's fairly common on most websites/forums etc. I just think putting it upfro...

Re: Jameela Boardman's Article FVM October 2019

In recent years my club has dropped four of its five competitions and replaced them with ‘Challenges’. Whilst I can see the appeal of this to some people and I wholeheratedly applaud you for trying this approach, I think we have to be very careful that in encouraging one group of people we do not d...
