Eccentric, inspirational, fascinating or just plain bonkers - we all know plenty of colourful characters in north Devon.

Now you have a chance to capture these characters on video and preserve their lives and their stories for posterity.  North Devon Moving Image (NDMI) is calling for submissions of sixty second video profiles of local people; it could be your postman, a chatty market stall holder, a selfless volunteer, your football coach or even your cheeky Grandma!

First prize is a Sony Handycam HDR-CX220E kindly donated by NDMI supporters J&A Cameras and other prizes include a night out with entertainment and a meal at The George Hotel, South Molton and a family ticket to Bideford Cinema.  The competition is open to all ages, free to enter and you don't need expensive equipment or professional software to make your short film.  You could use your mobile phone, digital camera or tablet.  Just make sure you have permission to film and the right to use any music you want to include and off you go!

Amanda McCormack, Creative Director of NDMI says "Here at NDMI we believe in the power of film and know that wonderful stories can be told in just a minute.   We want to get to know the people who make up the communities of north Devon.  We want to hear their stories and be amused, inspired or have our heart strings tugged."

The competition closes on Wednesday 1 October 2014 but don't wait until then to send your film in as NDMI will be featuring the best films on their website as they are submitted.

You can submit your film via We Transfer to northdevonmovingimage@outlook.com, by post to North Devon Moving Image, 2 Cullamartin, Instow, Bideford EX39 4LU or by dropping it in to J&A Cameras in Barnstaple or Bideford.

Full terms and conditions are available on the NDMI website at www.northdevonmovingimage.org.uk or by calling Amanda McCormack, Creative Director of NDMI on 01271 860610.

A celebratory screening and prize giving will take place in November in Barnstaple and the best of the films will be preserved and shared in the NDMI collection online and on DVD.
