Affiliated to the IAC, CEMRIAC and the MIDLAND MOVIE MAKERS
We are a small but friendly camcorder club welcoming you whether you are a beginner
or advanced video producer. We meet every other Thursday evening at 7.30 in the
Braunstone Civic Centre on Kingsway between September and May. Our members make
their own films for entry into club level and regional competitions. Our yearly
programme has workshops, lectures and speakers on various subjects relating to the
hobby. The club also provides shows for other outside groups such as (W.I., flower
societies, garden clubs, retirement groups etc) and have a series of show reels for
exchanging with other clubs.You can join the club even if you have no equipment of
your own. You could be an actor, lighting or sound assistant, scriptwriter or assist
in any other way you can. So if you have all that holiday footage you do not know
what to do with, come and give us a try, with a free two week taster.
