PREMIERE EVENING: The Machine Stops
At this meeting, our member Michael Alley will be presenting the premiere of his new film The Machine Stops, based on E.M. Forster's book of the same title.
In the book, Forster was concerned about human dependence on technology. Although the book was published in 1909, it is just as relevant today as it was back in 1909. Perhaps even moreso. Consider the Internet.
Members are encouraged to attend this evening to support the screening of Michael’s new film. Read more.
GENERATING FILM IDEAS AND APPLYING THOSE IDEAS
In the second half of the meeting, members will have the opportunity to employ some of those techniques as we start to develop ideas for the making of a short film about the Club itself, the production of which will take place during 2014/15.
What do you think we should include in this film? Members are encouraged to take inspiration from other clubs from around the country who have produced their own promotional films. For example, Reading Film and Video Makers.
