The Cinematic Syncopations Orchestra, a film by new member Dave Thompson, has won the prestigious Film of the Year title at the club’s Boudicca Film Awards.
Dave received the FOTY Boudicca from the Mayor of Colchester, Cllr Peter Chillingworth, watched by a large audience at Firstsite.
Dave’s film qualified to enter the FOTY by winning the Chairman’s Cup. The name - SP27 Concert – was apparently only its file name and was added to the entry form by mistake.
The background to the film was that the girlfriend of Dave’s son was the concert’s production manager. He was asked if he would film the orchestra setting up and rehearsing. Having done that he decided to ask each member of the management team a few open questions and capture their emotional responses on camera.
