Film buffs focus on flood damage
LIGHTS, camera, action.
Warwick youth will edit the final touches to their short films before tonight’s premiere at the In The Bin Film Festival at Warwick Town Hall.
Since Wednesday, budding Warwick filmmakers have worked with professional short filmmakers in conjunction with National Youth Week for this year’s film festival.
Youth worker Bonita Tyler said the festival had not only opened doors for young people but was a great way for them to express themselves.
“On Wednesday we learnt about the different genres like action, drama and comedy,” she said.
“We also got the creative juices flowing and stared to brainstorm the ideas for Thursday filming.”
Yesterday the group hit the streets to shoot footage for their short films.
“This year’s theme is the recent devastating floods that hit Queensland and our region.” Miss Tyler said.
“The youth have a lot of ideas and want to showcase the lasting impact.”
“They helped each other, by both acting and filming each other in the films.”
Tonight is the premiere for the short films.
Entry to the 6pm screening is by gold coin donation, with proceeds to help fund youth activities in the district.
Professional films will also be shown.
