On Saturday October 24th 2015, I held my fifth film evening at Morden Brook, Lower Morden, which I’ve held since I finished university in 2012 every 6 months to a year to showcase my latest film projects. A new addition to this film evening was my questionnaire to find out the audiences favourite film of the night. The questionnaire asked them to put the films shown throughout the night in order from the best to their worst. Proceeding the event, I then counted up the results in a similar fashion to Eurovision (11pts for 1st, 1pt for 11th) and here are the results:
11. Red Baron by Chris Gwilt (Cameraperson/Editor)
This year I met up with my school friend I’ve known since I was in nursery to help him film a drumming auditions to go on tour with Shayne Ward.
