A TALK with illustrations on animated films was given by Mr. Bernard
Bareham at the Reading Cine and Tape Recording Society on Monday.
Mr. Bareham's flair for drawing cartoon characters was shown in his
own film called "Chockered" which was awarded a Gold Star
in the Ten Best international film competition this year.
TO make a film on the theme of 'motion' was the aim of all the films
shown at the Reading Cine and Tape Recording Society on Monday. This
was interpreted by members from steam engines to trick photography.
From the 12 films shown one will be selected to be entered for the
triangular competition between Reading, Swindon and Newbury Cine Clubs
Cine and tape cup awarded
THE Abbey Cup for the best slide-and-tape show of the year at the
Reading Cine and Tape Recording Society went to Andrew Popkin for
his "Iceland" a re-creation of a fascinating and unusual
holiday in which magnificent scenery was matched by photography of
skill and artistry.
Runners-up were Maureen Fargher's "Gates" and Derek Holt's
Mr Bernard Bareham and his brother acted as judges, and Mrs. D Noyes,
wife of the President, presented the awards.
Members learned with gratification that Mr. Bareham's 8mm cartoon
film "Chockered", winner of the club's top award for 1971,
had gone on to gain a prize (cash value £20) in the West of
England Film Festival.
The final meeting of the year will be a dinner at the Acropolis restaurant
on December 20th.
TAPE OF THE YEAR
IT is an added bonus if a competition judge is willing to give reasons
for his decisions after the event, but Nr Colin Goodall went one stage
further on Monday and played a demonstartion tape he had compiled
to show the good and bad aspects of tape recording.
The occasion was the annual tape competition of the Reading Cine and
Tape Recording Society.
By a count of points, Mr. Goodall awarded thr Grosvenor Cup for the
best entry to "Children Playing", a technically flawless
presentation of excerpts from a children's concert in the Town Hall
by the President, Mr. D Noyes.
Runner up was "Farewell Party", a fantasy playlet by Mrs.
An ambitious and professionally accomplished scince fiction episode
was entered by Paul Willey, but to the surprise of some it did not
gain a place among the first three. Of seven entries, all but two
were stereophonic and gave a fine sense of spread and direction.
