We had 18 members turn out for the evening. We had one guest who departed before we could really get to meet him during the main break.
Check out our events
If you haven't noticed, our web site https://www.bmm.org.au/ features an events section which Glenn demonstrated that can be used to promote premieres, get togethers and outdoor events, such as drone shoots.
Going, Gimbal, Gone Nigel’s sold his lightly used Zhiyun 2 Crane Gimbal + arms (not his real arms, but handles) to the club as the club gimbal has had a long history of battery issues. It will be available for loan in the new year. What's in store for 2024
In a bid to retain membership, it is important that we offer a range of strategies that inspire, encourage and educate us as filmmakers. Riding on the back of one of BMM’s most exciting and optimistic years, Glenn reiterated that it is important that we as a club continue to grow and develop in a creative, planned and optimistic way. We want to continue to attract interest with our website, projects and social media, but is important that we become even better at both attracting and retaining new members. The committee is going to use the Xmas break to come up with a new and exciting plan and engaging activities. Stay tuned.
Eleven Tomorrows How exciting!

David advised it features a total of 14 films (13 fiction, 1 non-fiction). Check out the FaceBook profile.
