Winner Takes All

This short film was conceived, written, filmed and edited by TVCT members during June 2010. John Somers wrote the stage script which was performed live by him and Sandra Loveday in the first workshop held in Payhembury Hall. This was storyboarded by Martin Redfern using a digital camera. The storyboard guided the filming which took place on location in workshop two. Camera operatives were Andrew Barbour, Freya Houghton, Geoff Nicholson, Clive Essame, Hannah Palmer and Martin Redfern and the location manager was Hannah Palmer. Workshop three allowed us to look at the footage and discuss how to edit it into the film you now see online. You'll see from the credits who was involved, including Charles West who made the original soundtrack. The workshop leader was Ben Vallack of Phototropic.

The film is a short, aimed at allowing us to learn the basic skills of film-making. It is obviously a pilot study for something more ambitious so if you are interested in making a new film, please contact John Somers, Tale Valley Community Theatre Artistic Director.
