Over the course of the project the young people came up with the ideas for the film, wrote the script, created a storyboard, organised themselves into a cast and crew, then shot and edited the film. They were supported by Claire Griffiths, David Parker, Abigail Horn and David Richards from Figment Arts.

Quotes from participants:

This is a fab new experience for me I’ve always wanted to do a little film and this is my chance to do it. I have a very strong team and they have come up with some very good ideas. I have made some great friends here who I will never forget! My favourite filming was in the park where everybody was very good and respectful! I can not believe it’s the last week its gone so fast! I really loved doing the music that was so much fun! I have learned to use the cameras more properly. My new friends are Anthony and Ashley. From Kieran xxxx

I have had fun making the film I have made new friends it has built my confidence i hope I can do something like this again I learned how to use the camera more and how to act.
