North Devon Moving Image (NDMI) is a project that has been created to capture and share new short films reflecting everyday life in North Devon today and preserve them for future generations.

Amanda McCormack, founder of NDMI says, "I was inspired to set up the North Devon Moving Image project after watching some fascinating archive films in the North Devon Movie bus a few years ago. It occurred to me that despite the fact that most people are regularly recording video on their mobile phones, tablets and digital cameras, no one is actually preserving this valuable resource."

With plenty of support and practical help from Jerry Bix at North Devon Plus and a grant from the North Devon Coast AONB Sustainable Development Fund they are now up and running.  This film was a great example of how a five minute video can capture a moment in time and also be informative, entertaining and inspirational.

Richard Butler, Sustainable Development Fund Chairman commented, "This project is an insightful record which reflects on an iconic part of Clovelly's rich Heritage. We were very happy to support this inaugural film project by North Devon Moving Image and hope it will be the first of many which will provide an informative record of life in North Devon."

NDMI aim to work with individuals, community groups and film makers in North Devon and hope to inspire a wide range of people to get involved.
