One Minute Film Making Competition Open to All


The Summer may be slipping away from us but you still have six weeks left to enter the North Devon Moving Image Short Shorts one minute film competition.
Community Film Making Organisation North Devon Moving Image (NDMI) are looking for your sixty second videos about interesting characters in North Devon. There are some great prizes to be won including an HD video camera, a night out at The George Hotel in South Molton and a family ticket to Bideford Cinema.
Amanda McCormack, Creative Director of NDMI, says “We want the people of North Devon to capture the characters and stories of North Devon in moving image. They could be a friendly neighbour, a great sports person, a chatty shopkeeper or Grandad with his stories of old North Devon. The best films will be shown at a screening and prize presentation later in the year and will be shared and preserved in our online archive.”
Joe Bulmer from Appledore entered his short film A Day with an Auctioneer made at South Molton Livestock Market;
“I chose South Molton’s livestock market because it’s one of the town’s major features yet very few people understand what goes on there. I learnt a lot in the brief time I worked there and was struck by the spirit and banter of the place. I’d been yearning to do make a film for some time and couldn’t decide on a subject. I guess the experience has taught me to film more and think less, if that makes sense.”
No previous experience or hi tech equipment is needed and the competition is open to all ages. Closing date is 1 October 2014 and entry can be made;
  • online via We Transfer or
  • by post to NDMI, 2 Cullamartin, Instow, Bideford, EX39 4LU.
To get some inspiration you can watch Joe’s film and see more Short Shorts of North Devon people on the NDMI website:
