we are delighted to reveal the four films that were made as part of our First Light Film Commission.
we would like to thank Jackie Passmore and Alex Harrison who were our film mentors on this project and our fantastic facilitators Trish Hallam and Adam Cain, who kept everyone in order! I’d also like to thank Liverpool Youth Service, especially Tracy Ramsey & Patrick Graham-Patrick got so into it that he features in two of the 4 films!
They all gave 110% to the project and I think you can really tell by the quality of the films. The biggest thanks must go to the brilliant young filmmakers that we have here tonight. Their commitment, ideas and positive attitude meant that the project was fun, valuable and we created some brilliant films.
Of course, I must also thank First Light who funded us to deliver this project-they are funded by the national lottery-so keep on buying those lotto tickets!
The project ran over 7 weekends covering the whole filmmaking process, from idea development all the way through to editing.
So let’s see the films!
FACT & Freehand present 4 First light films.
These films were made by young people aged between 13 and 19 under the guidance of professional filmmakers. Supported by the Lottery through the BFI’s First Light Initiative.
