Young film makers busy as deadline approaches

Issued: 26 Apr 2010

With the deadline for entries to the Highland Council's film script competition approaching young aspiring film makers are busy putting the finishing touches to their storyboards.

Organised by The Highland Council's Waste Recycling team, entries for the competition are invited from 11-16 year olds who are being asked to use their creativity, imagination and flair to come up with an original storyline that will get people all over Highland thinking, talking and taking action on waste and recycling.

The winning group will have the opportunity to work with a professional production company to produce their film which will then be shown throughout Highland at a variety of venues including schools, shopping centres, colleges, local community events, and also possibly local cinemas.

The film can be in any style- music video, documentary, interviews, comedy, animation, song/rap or poetry. The only requirement is that it is on the theme of waste and recycling.

Posters and details regarding the competition were distributed to all secondary schools and youth groups in the Highland Council area just before Easter. The closing date for entries is 7th May.

Anyone interested in entering or would like further information should contact the Waste Aware Team on 01349 868439; email recycle@highland.gov.uk or http://www.highland.gov.uk/recycle
