John Bridcut - Telling Stories on Film

Tonight we had a very special guest speaker. John Bridcut is a successful television documentary filmmaker.  His connection with Sutton Coldfield Movie Makers is that he used 3 seconds of Sutton Coldfield Movie Makers (then Sutton Cine Society) film in his much praised documentary “Elizabeth at 90 - A Family Tribute” which had 10 million viewers.

John gave us a wonderful evening’s entertainment and education on the subject of “Telling Stories on Film” structured around his “13 Golden Rules”.  He showed us clips from his productions to illustrate his rules, and regaled us with fascinating stories about some of the people he’s met in the course of his work including Her Majesty the Queen and President Clinton.
