This exciting and creative project involves young film makers in the region. We are creating a touring cinematic event for the public, which we hope will be screened nationally and internationally in other towns involved in the Mayflower commemoration.
We have teamed up with students on Plymouth College of Art’s Film Degree Course, headed by Film Leaders Lucy Leake and Chris Bailey, and with multi-award-winning Producer/Director, Peter Nicholson. Peter is leading and coordinating the project, and he is passionate about fostering talent among young filmmakers and actors in the South West. Students from local schools have the opportunity to work on the films as part of their work experience.
The first phase of this project has now been completed, and the students have created two very different films – a documentary and a drama. We have shown these two films as a pilot project at screening events for funding bodies and sponsors, to gather support for the full four film event.
Phase two of the project has unfortunately been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with Plymouth College of Art being temporarily closed. We are hopeful that work can continue in due course.
