Payne hopes that through the publication of “REEL REBELS: THE LONDON FILM-MAKERS' CO-OPERATIVE 1966 TO 1996,” readers will become interested in film-making while they appreciate the artistry of the London Co-op film-makers.

Author Joyce I. Payne discovered the innovative films created by artists and others who are interested in the possibilities of the moving image at the London Film-Makers Co-operative during a 30-year period from 1966 to 1996. Such discovery prompted her in writing “REEL REBELS: THE LONDON FILM-MAKERS' CO-OPERATIVE 1966 TO 1996” (published by AuthorHouse UK).

This book discusses the methods and materials employed by Co-op film-makers to create their many short experimental or avant-garde films, despite their lack of resources. Their films became known as 'artists' films' as many film-makers had trained at art schools and colleges. They sought to maintain autonomy over the production, distribution and exhibition of their work.

“This book will appeal to those who are interested in history and the different aspects of the moving image and who may be inspired to attempt film-making themselves,” Payne points out. “It is solely concerned with the London Film-Makers’ Co-operative.

Payne hopes that through the publication of “REEL REBELS: THE LONDON FILM-MAKERS' CO-OPERATIVE 1966 TO 1996,” readers will become interested in film-making while they appreciate the artistry of the London Co-op film-makers.
