The Shout Action team are campaigning hard to start a new film project.
This team of around 15 young people from the rural town of New Mills, Derbyshire are all in year 8 at the local high school and have recently worked with us to complete their first film project, which they wrote, shot and acted in together.
“We’ve loved the experience and jumped at the chance to write a new film idea to go forward to the First Light Online funding programme. Sadly we’ve just found out that the bid was unsuccessful, but they gave us such positive feedback that we can’t help feeling the project idea should live on.”
We have successfully raised £1,270 to fund Phase 1 of the project – where we will develop the storyline, write the script and plan the shooting schedule – i.e. the pre-production phase. Most of this budget will go towards working with a professional film maker, so that we reach the highest standards and keep learning the tricks of the trade.
Now we are fund raising for Phase 2 – the production phase. We need £1,125 to pay for professional film maker, Matt Kowalczuk to work with the group during the shoot.
