Film making

Our aim is to make two or three historical dramas every year which wil be projects initiated by ourselves.
In addition, we often get asked to make films with or for other organisations. Sometimes an organisation has a funded project which would benefit from a film as part of it - drama or documentary. At other times we have been asked to film events such as the visit of the Sealed Knot to Ashby or the special Remembrance Day commemorations in 2018.

Recently we were happy to be able to help our local parish church by making a film to be shown on Remembrance Sunday 2020. COVID restrictions meant that the normal commemorations in church and at the war memorial could not take place. Two weeks before, we were out at 7.30am on a Sunday morning, filming the Rector performing the services at the war memorial and in the church. We even attended the choir practice one evening and enable them to make their contribution to the finished film.

We are also able to make simple animations such as this one in which a 16th-century memorial plaque in St Helen's Church is brought to life and enables the figures, Robert Nundi and his two wives, to tell their story. The script for this one was written by Helen Bralesford of Ashby Writers' Club.







Quick Flicks

This is our annual public screening of some of the drama films we have made during the year. Most of the films shown at these events are put on our YouTube channel and can be accessed through the project pages for each year - click projects on the navigation bar above.
The first Quick Flicks was in 2015 and from 2016 it has always been a free event, usually held at The Lyric Rooms in Ashby de la Zouch. In 2019, a second evening was held in the Packington Memorial Hall.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, our Quick Flicks evening for 2020, which was scheduled for October, has been cancelled. We hope there will be a Quick Flicks in 2021 but there are no plans at present. When this changes it wil be announced here and on social media.
