South Essex Film Makers
  passionate about film making 
Check out more films on our 
Lockdown Newsletters
There's not much filming going on during the Coronavirus epidemic but that has not stopped our creative members (with a little bit of extra time on their hands) from contributing articles to a series of publications which we have called The SEFM Lockdown Newsletters

With thanks to the editor Geoff Partridge, the resulting items from a number of members has resulted in a wide range of subjects from the highly technical to extremely personal recollections. There is something for everybody with an interest in making films.

Just click and download the issue you wish to read.
New articles are always welcome and should be sent to Geoff at for inclusion in the next newsletter.
