Welcome to the SAM Members Competition
It has been a strange time for everyone with meetings, competitions, visits - everything put on hold!
And SAM is no different to other organisations and has had to cancel and postpone just about all our meetings.
After some deliberation last season, we knew that the guidelines would force us to consider what we do with our meetings. At first, it was an easy decision to keep everyone safe, so the meetings were cancelled.
But we still had the entries from our annual competition to be judged and viewed. Tim Stannard came to our rescue as he is a fantastic judge and as we know, he's also a terrific film-maker. So, the films were sent to Tim for adjudication and he has very kindly stayed with us through this nightmare to make a short video of his critiques and the results.
We hope you enjoy the films and Tim's comments. You don't have to view them in the running order followed by the comments but it would be a better viewing experience to do it that way as that's the way Tim reviewed them.
You can, of course, just skip to the results but what would be the point of that?
Hook up your computer, smart phone or whatever to your TV or projector to see them as they were meant to be seen. So, sit back, relax and enjoy the films!
The films will remain online for 14 days so plenty of time to watch them again if you wish. Please send us your feedback, good or bad, about the way in which we have shown the films and if you have any suggestions, we would love to hear them.
A huge vote of appreciation goes out to Tim Stannard who has spent alot of time viewing and writing crits for the films and we are sure all the members would like to pass on their thanks to him for doing us proud.
