Production Role: Film and Edit

THE WRINKLIES is a short film about my fathers local table tennis club in south Devon. With ages ranging from 60 to 93 and a fantastic collection of characters, my dad felt it would be nice to capture this unique club for the participants and their families. So armed with just a camera and a small microphone I went along to a session, which resulted in this film.

Since making the short film, BBC Spotlight, The Daily Express, various radio and other media saw the video and have run news stories on TV, radio and newspapers. The story has gone on to inspire similar clubs being setup around UK and even abroad.

Amazing stories, remarkable players, incredible rallies, and some truly lovely people, all hidden in one small Table Tennis club in South Devon, until now…
