The Beach Club – THE MOVIE

BBC-The-MovieStorytellers Tuesday 17th June!

As part of our Centenary celebrations a film/documentary on the Club was produced with help from a variety of members.

Join us on Tuesday 17 June at 7.30pm to see the Film and listen to the story of the process of putting it together.

It will be a full evening starting with guest Andrew Gregory.

Those of you who attended the Centenary Book Launch and Club photo will remember well the drone camera hovering overhead. Andrew was the photographer responsible and will bring along a drone and then provide some background on drone photography and how this emerging technique is being used today.

Next member Bob Hill will explain the saga of The Movie.

Bob has been involved in film for some 40 years, predominately as a Production Designer and Art Director. He’ll explain his approach to making The Movie and the difficulties of combining all the various old formats thrown in from the Archives into something the Club is rightfully proud of.

As usual with the Storytellers format come a bit earlier and join us for a BYO BBQ.
