These newsreels have proved so popular that we have made more material available. As well as two further Newsreels we have added several more films made by members. To view the material please go to https://www.ovfm.org.uk/ovfm-classic-newsreels/
In about two weeks time we will add some films from the OVFM project about the History of Orpington.
We would also like your help. Covid 19 and the lockdown will clearly be major events to include in our 2020 Newsreel to include in next year’s OVFM Spring Show but because of lockdown our members are unable to be out to do much filming. We would therefore like you to take films on your mobile phone, SLR camera or camcorder and send them to us so we can include as many as possible in the newsreel. These can be of anything related to Covid 19 and the lockdown e.g. empty high streets, queues outside food shops or chemists, clap for the NHS, family video calls or special activities you’ve set up in your home or garden.
To fit with the film format will you please shoot in landscape format, i.e. holding your phones horizontally, if possible. The footage will probably be too much to send via email so please use any of the free file transfer systems such as WeTransfer to send films to email@example.com By sending your films you give permission to use all or part of them in producing OVFM films. We will be happy to acknowledge your contribution at the end of the film if you advise us that you would like this.
