We have teamed up with the National Youth Film Festival Awards to showcase the best of teenage UK talent in a short-film contest.
Film details and synopsis:
‘This Place That I Love’ is a music video made by Jonathan Gibson for the band Arcs and Trauma, who are based in Hartlepool.
The idea behind the video stems from a lack of interest in live music events in Hartlepool, as a result of people ‘alienating’ themselves from cultural occasions by immersing themselves in 21st century banality. The lead actor depicts how it is hard for ‘alienated’ people to re-appreciate musical substance.
The ‘Round My Corner’ competition focuses on family, friends and local neighbourhoods and can be filmed on anything from a professional video camera to a smartphone. It can be a beautifully edited masterpiece or a simply produced good story, the choice is yours.
You need to be aged 14-19 and produce a film no longer than three minutes in length based on what ‘Round My Corner’ means to you. But you only have until Friday, October 11.
