What is 'Call The Shots' ?

Call The Shots (CTS) is a network of film makers including Directors, writers, actors, producers, sound and camera specialists.

CTS has one goal which is to make films. In particular we specialise in low-to-no budget films, sometimes known as ‘guerrilla film making’.

Where are you based ?

Based in the West Midlands (UK) CTS meet every 3rd Tuesday of the month at the
Institute for Creative Enterprise (ICE) building
, Coventry Technical Park, CV1 2TT
from 7pm.

So please join us if you’re a budding filmmaker.

Where is all the important stuff?

Fundamental to CTS is great films, safety on set and the right paperwork.

If your a member of CTS we have insurance to cover you for public liability (not for equipment hire).

Call The Shots also has rules for its administration as well as clear policies on Equal Opportunities as well as Health and Safety.
