Congratulations to film maker John “JJ” Jones for winning the Open competition with his nine minute travelogue, How Hill. JJ faced stiff competition from nine other entries, the highest number of submissions in any club competition in recent memory.
In second place was Quartermain 1920’s by Bryan Littlewood; and third So Many Things by Andy Merz
“JJ” writes: “ It was a fun day out around the northern Norfolk Broads taking in the secret garden of How Hill and a trip on Electric Eel to a couple of bird hides in the reed and sedge beds just off the River Ant.
“This was a first for me filming totally in 4K and an exercise in editing a full-days shoot down to a watchable nine minute film.
“The film was trimmed top and bottom to make a more pleasing aspect ratio and it was also graded to give a more ‘earthy’ look.”
