Lincoln graduates and staff make short film set to air on BBC4

On BBC4 on Wednesday

By Local Democracy Reporter

Staff and alumni at the University of Lincoln have written, produced and directed a short film that will be broadcast on BBC4.

The film is called INSIDE and is a choreographed dance performance movie written by Martyn Bignell, a university alumnus at Lincoln.

His idea was picked from applicants all over the UK by the BBC for their New Creatives scheme.

The cast also features an array of local talent, including choreography from Haley Evans and Julie Lowe from StreetBeat Dance and Fitness in Lincoln.

It was directed by Phil Stevens, a lecturer in the Lincoln School of Film and Media.

He said: “It’s brilliant to be able to showcase some of the creative talent we have at Lincoln to such a broad audience.

INSIDE is based on the themes of togetherness, communication and social media which are incredibly relevant to everyone at present.

“The film features talent from all around the country, including staff and students at the University, who all helped to realise Martyn’s vision.”

INSIDE will air on Wednesday, May 27 at 11:30pm on BBC4, as part of the Dance On Film: BBC Introducing Arts season.
