Young film makers

Talent comes in all shapes and sizes, and acknowledging and developing talent in all its diverse forms is a big part of what The Bridge youth centre in Whitburn Street is all about. Recently some of The Bridge’s young people came together to create the artwork for a short film which they titled ‘Sad Talents’ – and which they wrote, developed, acted in, and edited. They decided to focus on the themes of bullying and reconciliation, with the piece telling the story of a talent show where things go wrong between the contestants, with characters reconciling and apologising at the end. Youth worker John Prockter said, “This project opened up discussion about what it feels like to be bullied and how friendships are affected by horrible words and actions. Many of the young people that attend The Bridge have experienced bullying in one form or another and feel passionately about stopping it.”
