Frequently-Asked Questions (FAQ)
Location & contact
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions about this site, Borehamwood Moviemakers, or amateur videomaking in general, you are welcome to email the webmaster. See the "Location & contact" link on the left for details. Before you do, though, please take a few moments to look through the rest of this page to see if your question is already answered here...
A couple of general requests first:
Can I link to your pages?
Yes. There's no need ask permission, although if you let me know about your link, I'll probably link to you in return. (See the next question.) Please link to the front page (http://www.borehamwoodcamcorderclub.org.uk), unless there's a good reason to link somewhere else. (Yes, I know this isn't the URL that appears in your browser's address bar. I use a redirection service to allow me to host the club site on the same server as my personal site.)
Can I have a link on your site?
Yes, provided that the following are true:
Email me with the URL of your site and a brief description, and it should be done within a day or two. If your site is for a camcorder club, I'll automatically add it to both the alphabetical list and the list by region. We reserve the right to refuse to link to a site that meets the criteria listed here if we feel that the site's content is or might be illegal, offensive or otherwise inappropriate.
I have a really cool product or service that I'd like your members to know about.
If it's really cool, I might remember to tell them about it. If you have a website to promote, I'm more likely to take a look at it if you ask for a link exchange, instead of a free advert.
I have some equipment to sell. Would any of your members be interested in buying it? or Where would be best to sell it?
We're generally not interested in buying second-hand equipment. Consequently, we don't have much of a clue about how to sell it, either.
We're making a TV series about X. Do your members have any footage that we could use?
Probably not, but I suppose if you don't ask, you'll never know...
I have a film festival or competition that I'd like you to enter.
If it's within the United Kingdom, we might be interested in entering. Otherwise, we're unlikely to bother.
I have some cine film that I'd like transferred to video or DVD. Can you do this? or Do you know of anyone who can do it?
Cine to video transfers are not something we are equipped to do. We've all used video for some years, and anything on cine that we thought was worth preserving would've been transferred long ago.
We link to several companies who offer various forms of transfer service. We do not endorse any of them (or any company that we link to), as we have never used their services. In other words, if your priceless memories come back in shreds or don't come back at all, don't blame us.
