Isn't it a bit ageist to talk about 'old folk' Stingman say sorry :) Erm........................... NO! My reason is that if we don`t get more folk into our clubs. Then they'll die. The clubs and the people! It could be a slow death or a sudden one for our clubs. My club is healthy in money but not...

I like and love the Sony FX1. I received my copy of DV User and it has a good article on HD, and a good camera they recommend for the money is the Canon HF11 or the Panasonic SD100. They only downfall is that to Manual focus is a bind, but they have cracking Images and are only about £699! They use ...

I must email them again! It IS great fun doing. You walk around in `proper offical tops` and have a cameraman follow you while you pick your victim, er, person to interview. And then edit the lot in no more then the two minute limit. It`s great to do this all as it stops you from getting rusty! As a...

Long story cut short........... I film as a newsteam for HOPE 08, a Christian Organisation. The 2 minute films that each of us make go onto their website, and are also shown on a few Christian Channels on Sky. The two that I have done suffered from a bit of distorted sound. My two cameramen both had...

I'd go along with all the things Willy put forward, though at my club only about 30% actually make any films at all. Most just come along to see people, and watch whatever is on the screen. To be a member of any sort of club, one has to become involved, or one is just a hanger-on-er! To go to a fil...

I see no problem! The Copyright monster rears it`s ugly head again! I would feel great if someone wanted to copy and show one of my films. BTW. I do owe a few people a copy of some of my films. I havn`t forgotton, editing commitments and club comps, and doing film stuff for people eats up my compute...

I had to REMOVE my YMCA because the copyright holders in America didn`t want it on there. **%$@@$! But i`ve seen compleate footage of tv shows, bits of films and all sorts on there. They do state (I think) that all stuff is put up at your own risk, and be free of Copyright..

Excellent film!! Put me down for a copy! I would contact Channel 4 or The film arm FilmFour! It`s the sort of film that they show on tv. English Low-Budget films of which I love because it`s the sort of film that I could make. I would do this first as if you put it into a festival then that may stop...

A good review Willy ... I am even more certain I will never reach the standard of the top awards - one minute movies and the shorts that I tend to make are different - they're just the 'roll and butter' that goes with a superb feast. I would agree. I love Willy ramberlings! We get so much insight i...

Good words Film Thurso.

When asked what I do, I sometimes don`t even mention my 9 to 5 job title! I say i`m a Film Maker. Much more fun then fixing Pushbikes! I think you will ALL agree 8)

How old is 'Young'? I'm 46 so I guess that makes me young here - but most music composing competitions have an age limit of 35 which makes feel very old!!! Anyway - regards the name - I agree with most of the posts I've read already - drop the name 'Amateur' - How about replacing it with 'Academy'?...
