My sincere thanks to everyone who has bought the Sidmouth & Exmouth Branch Lines film, this has been one of the most successful titles in recent years and given me some fire to crack on and make and some more.
The Longparish Branch Line remains the next one in the pipeline and I hope to make a start on this before the end of this year. More news as it becomes available.
After two years of relative inactivity, apart from a few collaborations with friends, a week of intensive filming in Devon has produced:
“The Sidmouth & Exmouth branch lines”.
This will be a blockbusting multiple dvd set showing the usual spectacular level of detail you’ve come to expect. Generous spirited landowners allowed your humble cameraman in to see vast swathes of land not readily accessed by the casual OS map toting rambler.
Current release date is set to be early June, watch this space or expect an email if you are on the mailing list.
Slowly starting to learn my way around this new website early in 2021, bear with me ! Here’s hoping 2021 will eventually turn out to be a better year for everybody. Plans are afoot for more Dumpman Films to be made, lockdowns allowing.
After hearing of my appeal for help with the website, Steve Pilfold & Nigel Mundy have stepped in to help and created this new website for me.
Steve and Nigel usually spend their time running the www.sussextrains.co.uk website, which displays real time train maps for the Sussex, Kent and South London areas and have offered Dumpman Films a corner of one of their servers!
My website hosting company is closing down on the 30th June 2020. This means that it is likely that the website may disappear for a while during reconstruction with a different provider and may never look the same again. Rest assured I will do everything in my power to keep it as close to the original as possible. Happily, the email address firstname.lastname@example.org is unaffected and I will continue to be contactable during this changeover period
Any regular visitors to the website will know that the selection of photos has remained largely unchanged for some years. Nothing wrong with that, as they’re all timeless classics, but you will soon notice new pages being added showing photos grouped by county. I will be steadily going through my vast archive of stills taken while making each film and adding them to these pages, but it might take a while ! Enjoy.
Delighted again to have more exposure ! This time on something dear to my heart, a rock radio show ! With grateful thanks to Loz and Paul for organising this, may they live forever. If pounding rock music isn’t your thing then skim forwards to around the 45 minute mark:
Delighted to have some press coverage for Dumpman Films in recent times:
Every little helps as they say.
Plans for filming around Sidmouth and Exmouth are on hold for now in the light of the Corona virus.
Dumpman Films can still be bought by emailing direct to email@example.com, but the shop on ebay will only list some of the titles (to save money). Any enquiries sent to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org will be answered and I’d be glad to hear from you, ALL titles listed in the film list are available when you deal direct. Stay safe and good luck through these terrible times.
After a lengthy break, plans are afoot for filming in Devon this coming Spring. Disused branches serving Exmouth and Sidmouth are in the planning stage and the Raleigh Chopper is getting ready to ride again, how very exciting !
