Young Lincoln film-makers premiere first production

Budding directors: A team of 18 young film-makers from Lincolnshire have premiered their first film.

A team of film-makers from across Lincolnshire who took part in a movie-making programme have launched their first film, The Delivery.

The group of 18 had insights into the UK film industry as they completed the BFI Film Academy programme at the University of Lincoln.

The course aims to train budding film-makers in the UK aged 16-19, providing opportunities for them to develop new skills and start a career in film-making.

They learned about professional techniques, equipment and technologies, and developed an understanding of the history, theory and criticism of British and World Cinema.

They also created their own short film, and received the help, support and training required to achieve an Arts Award as part of their participation in the academy.

The University’s School of Media was one of 24 partners to deliver the BFI Film Academy in partnership with CfBT Education Services, creators of the Lincolnshire Awards for Film Teamwork and Achievement (LAFTAs).

Lincoln production company Electric Egg was also on hand to help produce a “Behind the Scenes” documentary for their short film.
