Paul Vernon is a member of Solent Movie Makers club which is based in Southampton and Surrey Border Movie Makers welcomed him as host of the monthly meeting in May.
Last year Paul visited the club to show members a trailer of his new Western Period Drama ‘Vermijo’ which was filmed in Arizona and won the Diamond BIAFF (British International Amateur Film Festival) Award. Surrey Border Movie members enjoyed watching the full-length film as part of a special evening. Paul answered many questions from the audience about how he made the film including the location, the actors and actresses some of whom appear regularly in local Wild West Shows, costumes, props and stunts all of which he needed to source to make the film as authentic looking as possible. Paul had also made a ‘behind the scenes’ film which showed the light-hearted side of making ‘Vermijo’. The evening was a great success especially as some of the Surrey Border Movie members decided to join Paul in dressing up in cowboy attire for the event.
