Mylor film is finished and on sale
After two years of work, The film of Mylor has been completed and is going on sale in time for Christmas. The film is the work of Penryn Video Editing Club (PVEC) and the Mylor Local History Society and is the result of some detailed camera work and editing.
The film has been finished despite PVEC having to overcome a couple of tragedies. The club was shocked and saddened by the sudden death earlier this year of its chairman, Barbara Dean, wife of television personality Hugh Scully, whose inspiration had been behind the planning of the project.
A further blow came with the death of John Watkins, one of the camera crew.
"Despite these tragedies, PVEC continued to work and it is due to the perseverance of everyone, encouraged by Hazel Cracknell, one of the team from Mylor, that the finished film is now ready." said Val Jeans-Jakobsson, chairman of the Mylor Local History Society.
"It is with deep gratitude that we thank Hugh Scully, who kindly agreed to introduce the film in memory of his wife."
Directed by Sheila Ternan, people, places and events were filmed with the idea of creating a picture of life in Mylor in 2008. The film is divided into chapters that cover some of the wide variety of activities in the village.
"Mylor Local History Society has been making voice recordings for several years, in particular when doing research for the Book of Mylor, which was published in 2004." said Val.
"This latest and highly professional addition to the village archive, along with the individual interview DVDs, will make a most welcome addition to their growing collection of material."
A Coffee Morning is to be held at the Tremayne Hall in Mylor next Saturday when excerpts from the film will be shown.
The Film of Mylor costs £12 and anyone wanting a copy will also be able to order one at the coffee morning.
