Gordon Sutton

My hobby in making films developed from my father who was an active member of Bournemouth and New Forest Film Makers.

I made my first Standard 8mm film in my twenties and many others since, using clockwork ciné cameras, in the intervening years. I made do with an auxiliary portable tape recorder for sound and avoided the progression to Super 8.

I converted to video in the early 80’s with Video 8, then Hi8 tape formats, I joined SBMM, then known as SBFVM, in 1999 to improve my knowledge of NLE systems and when miniDV was becoming the preferred amateur video recording method.

I served on the club committee for many years in various capacities and as Club Chairman from 2007-2010. Apart from making my own films I have been involved in many club productions in numerous roles but mainly behind camera.

All great fun.
