Chairman Bob Bennett and Programme Secretary Peter Heaven visited the Gloucester Cine and Video Club to show 'Images in Time' and 'Vernons Permutation', both of which were much appreciated. It seems that their members are prolific with individual productions, whereas BFVS members support the larger club productions. This probably accounts for Gloucester having about 12 competitions a year with no lack of entries, and Bristol having just four competitions a year.....
We would like to thank them for their hospitality, and commend them for their excellent venue and projection facilities. We would also like to thank the library (next door); having arrived in good time before their club room was open, the librarians were very welcoming and were able to provide a friendly cup of coffee!
We showed them the film; wined and dined them; amazed them with a 'full supporting programme' of out-takes (Vernon only lasts 13 minutes) and specially recorded stuff, and generally gave them a good time. We had a good time too.
We presented John Stevens (who played the title role in our film) with a framed poster used in the production.

Six members filmed, from various view points, the final flight of a Concorde into Filton Airfield in Bristol.
VERNON WINS BEST ACTING AWARD
JOHN STEVENS (right) receives his award for 'BEST ACTING' in our production of 'Vernons Permutation' from PETER ROWELL of HTV at the Cotswold International Film Festival 2003.
We gave a showing of a video 'The Other Side Of The Play'. The main audience was The St Paul's Players, who meet in Southville, Bristol. They are a drama group who help us to a high degree when we require actors. The video, produced by Graham Egarr, shows the making of their play 'The Other Side Of The Sky' written and directed by Paul Williams.
In addition, excerpts of the play (on video)were put together and shown to the audience. The video of the complete play (over two hours long) had been recorded by seven cameras. This resulted in the editor Martin Brown having 17 tapes to edit from.
