As many of you might know, I'm chairman of my local video club Staines Video Makers.
Every year it falls to the chairman to present an eveing. Being a lazy b*gg*r, I simply put together a list of films I've come across on the internet which I've found interesting, inspiring or just entertaining. Of course I had to reduce that list in order to fit into an evening and in the event i only found time to show 60-70% of those.
Most of these wre made by members of this forum, and I'm very grateful to Marc Peters, Midnight Blue, Andy Lockwood, ctbullet, Kartiv2 and enc for letting me show them.
