Coming Soon....

Just a little pre-warning post! We have a date for "The Big Shoot" which is the second of the Making Waves events funded by the Cornwall Community Foundation. Over the weekend of the 7th & 8th July, Penryn will become Cornwall's Hollywood with up to four seperate films being shot in and around the town under the guidance of the experts from Firstborn Creatives.

Four groups of between 5 & 6 young people will shoot a film each with the general theme of issues which affect either them or other young people in their community. These films will be submitted for the Cornwall Film Festival and "Fresh 7" YP Film Festival in Bristol.

With all of KYSPA's members taking part, there will still be room for other local budding film makers to take part in this event. The best brains in KYSPA (well, ok, me) are working on a system by which interested young people can apply to take part. Details will be published in the local press shortly. Keep an eye out for posters about the place too! In the meantime, if you are interested in taking part, drop us an email.
