Ken began making films back in 1968 at the age of 16. At first these were the usual
family films then comedies, thrillers and animated films using plasticine. Disillusioned
with the end product, Ken stopped for a while, then re-started and tried again. This
happened three times until he met wife-to-be Carol in 1984 who encouraged him to
make films once again. This was the fourth attempt to make quality films, hence the
name, Phase 4.

Friday 29th November - Evening Speaker Ken & Carol Wilson - Phase 4 Films
Over the past 35 years they have made many more films, winning awards in regional
and national competitions, including thrillers, comedies, dramas and science fiction.
Starting their own business in 2004 making wedding videos as well as recording many
other events, but writing, filming and editing Phase 4 Films remains very much a
keen interest. Ken has written for the IAC’s Film and Video Maker magazine for over
15 years with regular articles coving all aspects of film making, including the trials
and tribulations encountered in the process.
This is a talk not to be missed and will be of interest to both AV workers and Film
