ABOUT

 

The Oxford University Filmmaking Foundation (formerly Oxford Broadcasting Association) is Oxford's filmmaking society. It exists to support and promote filmmaking at Oxford University. We produce and advise productions, offering financial support and equipment rentals. To apply for support email ouffpresident@gmail.com with a bid. We also provide a platform for showcasing student-made films at our termly screenings and host talks, workshops and other film-related events throughout the year.

The OUFF was established in 1981 as the Oxford University Film Foundation by Michael Hoffman, now a prolific film director best known for The Last Station and A Midsummer Night's Dream. OUFF's first production Privileged was scored by Oscar-winning composer Rachel Portman and starred Hugh Grant, Imogen Stubbs, and Mark Williams.

Today we continue the work of nurturing Oxford's film talent.

Join our Facebook group and mailing list for news, events and opportunities to get involved!

We also run the Oxford Film Hub which allows you to network with other student filmmakers.

RESOURCES

RUNDOWN OF A FILM CREW

Most student film crews have the following:

  • Director - guides the vision for the project
  • Cinematographer, or  Director of Photography (DP/DoP) - guides the film's cinematography, decides lighting aesthetics
  • Producer - oversees the logistics of the film, raises funding
  • 1st AD (Assistant Director) - in charge of scheduling, keeps charge of set
  • 2nd AD (Assistant Director) - assistant to the 1st AD
  • 1st AC (Camera Assistant) - operates the camera
  • 2nd AC (Camera Assistant) - helps the 1st AC operate camera
  • Gaffer - lighting assistant
  • Sound recordist - records the sound for the film
  • Production designer - designs costumes and sets
  • Runner - provides a helping pair of hands on set

Before bidding, it is a good idea to have a core crew in mind (e.g. a director, cinematographer, 1st AD, producer) but other positions such as runners can be filled later on in the process.
