INTO FILM WINNER
WINNING Into Film’s Nature In Your Neighbourhood competition left me speechless!
Part of this was because I enjoyed making it so much. During lockdown I made a series of films for homework tasks each week and started to get some great feedback from people in my class. This gave me the boost I needed to enter the competition.
The competition gave my family and
I a real focus whenever we were in the garden or going on family walks during lockdown. We saw so much and by the time I came to edit the film, I had lots of footage to choose from. I hadn’t got a clear idea of what the film was going to be about, but the more I thought about what I’d filmed, it fell into place, because there were all these amazing things around me that I hadn’t seen as being similar to us before. It was then that I decided to share lessons from nature around us that could help us get through lockdown.
The £300 film-making first prize is amazing, especially when you go to the
Into Film website and see all of the wonderful films that other young people submitted.
The entries were really inspiring for me. I hope to take the equipment to school and my aim is to teach others how to make films, so that they can enjoy everything that film-making brings: fun, creativity and being able to tell a story about anything you choose!
