In school, I made a four minute short called Goodbye To Youth (embedded below). While it was far from a masterpiece (although I did receive an A for my efforts), it did allow me to put the knowledge I’d acquired from studying A Level Film Studies to the test.
Since then, I haven’t done any filming or editing work, which is a real shame as I enjoyed every minute of that experience and was as proud as punch when it was shown alongside my classmates at my school’s mini Academy Award event (though, unfortunately, I didn’t win any of the prizes). Instead, I’ve turned my hand to writing, to varying degrees of success.
I am, however, keen on making another short film and, once again, putting my burgeoning knowledge to the test. I have a few narrative ideas floating around my head, and I plan on spending a few weeks carving out a synopsis and then sketching some storyboards.
If anyone, in or around Scotland, fancies helping me out, or can point me in the direction of somewhere I could borrow filming equipment from, I’d very much appreciate it.
