Edit Challenge 2021

2021 Edit Exercise '10 to 3'

Tim Stannard, Competition Officer, asked members to provide a selection of random clips taken from their films. He assembled 10 minutes of random footage and set the challenge for members to produce a 3 minute narrative film, so it became the ’10 to 3′ Edit Exercise.

There were an impressive 12 competition entries and Tim who has extensive judging experience which includes the BIAFF (British International Amateur Film Festival) was very impressed by the standard and the imaginations of the Surrey Border members who entered films.

The selection was very varied and included the following films:

‘Another Brick part 3’ by Jim Reed based on Pink Floyd’s hit song,

‘Music Quiz’ by Tim Stannard with songs played in reverse to film clips giving clues to the answers,
