Five young people from Sefton enjoyed their very first premiere – and it was the film they had directed!
One Vision Housing has been working with Georgia King, Robbie King, Kate Carey, James Hanson and Phoebe Gillespie from Ford Lane Community Centre, Litherland to come up with a short film that addresses current issues in society. They chose to highlight the dangers of using social networking sites.
In September, the group visited the Lowry Theatre in Manchester to see their short film shown on the big screen at an event attended by stars of the small and silver screen.
The would-be film directors showcased their skills recently at One Vision’s Bootle Festival (BooFest) which was attended by over 6000 local residents and they used footage from the event in their final cut of the film which can be viewed on YouTube.
One Vision Housing Youth Engagement Officer Marie Morgan said: “The ‘Script 2 Screen project was set up with youngsters from across our neighbourhoods. The group had the opportunity to learn new skills in film making, camera operating, acting and creating storyboards. They’ve gone from absolute beginners to seeing their work on the big screen and the results have been fantastic.”
The film will be repeated at the Unity Theatre on Tuesday 25th September and will be submitted at regional, national and international festival competitions.
