Challenges Home Page

The Challenges vary but the objective is always to encourage members to experiment with different styles, creativity or editing techniques when making their videos. Sometimes, the raw footage will be provided and the entrants challenged to produce something to a set criteria.

For example, in 2021, members were provided with 10 minutes of footage and asked to produce a coherent 3 minute film. (The 10-3 challenge).

The following year, footage was not provided, but members had to produce a montage. Other occasions, such as the Christmas challenge, members are asked  to produce a short piece of work reflecting a particular theme.
