The Take 4 Film Challenge took place at Theatr Llwyn. Entrants had to make a film in 10 days using a genre, prop and line of dialogue. A fantastic and appreciative audience, proved just what a hit all the films were! Afterwards, Ian Jones, Llanfyllin Town Mayor, handed out the prizes and praised the entrants for their hard work, ingenuity and commented on how creative and talented all the film makers were.
As part of the programme we hosted a ‘Film Nation: Shorts’ workshop in November to help young Llanfyllin film-makers win a chance to get their work showcased at the London 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The workshop gave young people the chance to work with industry professionals, KinoKulture, through First Light. They learnt about story, camera, sound, directing, editing and producing a short film using the latest state-of-the-art Panasonic equipment.
Film Nation: Shorts is delivered in partnership with Panasonic, Screen West Midlands, First Light and 104 films with funding from the National Lottery through the Olympic Lottery Distributor. For more information: www.filmnation.org.uk.
Ffilmic 2009 was funded by the Film Agency for Wales and supported by the Valleys Film Society. The Take 4 awards were supported by Llanfyllin SPAR and kindly sponsored by Lake Vyrnwy Hotel, to whom we are very grateful.
