WIN­NING Into Film’s Na­ture In Your Neigh­bour­hood com­pe­ti­tion left me speech­less!

First News - - YOUR NEWS - By Ted JOUR­NAL­IST

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!
