Club Nights

There are always individual projects going on within Sutton Film Makers. Members have creative freedom to work in their own way.

In addition to collaborative work, members lend their services to club projects e.g. making documentaries for local good causes.

At club nights members seek assistance with technical set ups for both types of ongoing projects. Recent club nights have included:

  • Lighting Mock-ups for feature films
  • Script Reading Evening for short films
  • Green screen advice for promotional videos
  • Practice interview techniques
