Young Filmmakers Meet Award Winners

Published: 9th June 2017

Our resident filmmakers have been treated to a private screening of an award-winning movie by its makers.

John Hickman and Alastair Cummings screened their short film, Akita, for members of our weekly filmmaking group and gave members a fantastic insight on taking the project from idea to being screened around the world. Alastair and John explained to the young people that making Akita led to receiving financial backing from a leading film funder for their next project.

The young filmmakers are currently making 60-second films and will work with director Magali Pettier, screenwriter Gavin Williams and more industry professionals in the coming weeks.

Filmmaking workshops for 13-19 year olds take place every Thursday from 5-7pm at The Customs House. Email daniel@customshouse.co.uk or call 0191 427 8193 to find out more about Filmmaking at The Customs House.
