Since 2013, OMF has been making films to raise funds or awareness for charities.
It all started when Corps Officers (Ministers) at a Salvation Army church were moving to take up a new commission and a tribute was required for use within their last meeting (service).
So retired media specialist and TSA Adherent Member Ian W Bennett MBKS created a short film using a mix of archival stills, new footage and talking heads.
A well-kept secret, on-the-day the film was projected unannounced and with a great surprise element.

Although conceived only for a single screening, Seven Years in Southport was such a success that a sell-out limited edition DVD run was commissioned, all proceeds being donated to youth work at the Southport Corps of the Salvation Army. Other films followed - all self funded and all raising charity donations. Since that inauspicious start, OMF has produced films with runtimes from a four minute music video to a full feature length movie of over two hours, setting up its own film school to make that possible and raising thousands of pounds for charity.
