LATEST TALK: Special Effects and Visual Effects

On Thursday 26 July, Southport MovieMakers Club member Nigel Moran, will be speaking about the history and making of special effects and visual effects in films.

Nigel, who has been involved in film-making since he was eight years old, has directed, starred and helped in over sixty short films as well as directing his debut feature film called “Mayhem Behind Movies” which has just received an “Honourable Mention” at the Toronto International Film and Video Awards.

Starring Carl Wharton “Zombie Massacre”, Kayla Keatley and Phil Perez “Sleep”, “Mayhem Behind Movies” is a fly-on-the-wall mockumentary following Kevin Knight, a struggling low-budget filmmaker, on his mission to complete his first big-break movie “Valentine” before the opening premiere. Kevin soon finds himself in turmoil as he races against the clock in a make-or-break scenario packed with side-splitting and nail-biting moments. Will Kevin finish in enough time with all the odds stacked up against him?

Nigel is currently planning a zombie short for YouTube while writing his next feature project and is close to finishing a book on making movies.

Day: Thursday 26 July
Time: 8 pm – 10.00 pm
Location: St James' Church Hall,
Lulworth Road, Southport, PR8 2BQ.
