Short Cuts films

Monday, March 21st, 2011


We’re delighted to announce that the three films made for our Short Cuts project have been signed off by First Light which means we can now share them with everyone.

The three films are ‘Tick Tock’ made by Fast Forward with Young Bristol, ‘Frank and Chris’ made by The Foyer with Connexions West, and ‘Counterpunch’ made by Digital Fish at Knowle West Media Centre.

Watch these films below and let us know what you think by submitting a comment.

Some of the films have already been shown at a BAFTA youth mentoring showcase on 17th March and we hope the films will now be submitted for festivals both by First Light and by the young filmmakers’ mentors.¬† News about these developments will be posted here.

Young People’s Citizen Journalism – with a sporting focus

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011


Today was the first session of our new RELAYS project with Fairfield High School’s BTEC media students to support them in honing their technology and social networking skills to the point where they will be ready to report back, live, from a football match in Bristol in April. They’re setting up blogs and ‘phlogs’ where they can phone in their reports and post photos and video, and learning how technology is changing the way we receive news, and how they can create news themselves. We’ve set up our own blog for this project which you can find here
