Welcome to Brisbane Movie Makers
If you want to make movies or simply be better at using your camcorder, this is the club for you.We have members that range from the film enthusiast through to the semi-professional movie-maker.
We have two club meetings each month, where you will get the chance to learn, share your knowledge and show your movies. Throughout the year we show movies that have been made by members as well as having technical and theoretical talks about different aspects of video.
Come along and see what we offer. As our guest you will have the opportunity to talk with other film-making enthusiasts and learn about film-making in a warm friendly atmosphere. Check out the benefits for members.
Program for this year
In 2017 we are using a course structure where members will be taken through aprogram from pre-production through to post production, with a creation of movies throughout the year
Each month members will be invited to make a short movie from a list of program. These have been devised to encourage members to get active and make movies. These movies can be made by individuals or in groups. The important thing is to just get out there and produce those movies.
You can be involved in major productions if you wish or just do your own thing. If you have a project that you would like to get off the ground, you will be given every assistance but at all times you will remain in control. It will be your project.
I expect you recognise our famous trophy that is up for grabs on the first Thursday each month but where is he now ?
The Ugg trophy has changed hands to a well deserved winner. Well done John.

Christopher Eipper, a German missionary, recorded the name of the Lagoon back in 1840 when Aborigines of the Turrbal tribe were still living their traditional ways. As he recorded their traditional way of life he heard them use words like, Bun Yun Pin, Yin Pin Bun to describe the lagoon as a place where they got tuberous roots for bush tucker. The roots came from a fern we know as the Bungwall Fern that grew around the margins of the lagoon. Once the aboriginal women had gathered these roots they would pound them flat with a stone into a biscuit shape and then roast in the fire.
