The Selby Big Local filming process is now underway and in full effect as young people from the Selby area interviewed each other using questions they had devised.
The interviews explore what life is like for young people living in Selby and what they think the area needs to improve the lives of local people.
Professionals working closely with the young people in Selby have also been interviewed to highlight the issues and challenges facing young people and to give their views on what improvements are needed in the area from a professional perspective.
Community officer, Jonny Beaucannon talked about the challenges around anti social behaviour and the need for positive role models for young people in the area. The interviews will be cut together with interviews from the young people along side poetry they have written and recorded. As part of the filmmaking process we took images of the young people to visualise their poems and create cutaways for the film.
The film is almost completely shot and the post production process has begun. Once the film is complete we will be organising a launch event to share it with key stakeholders and members of the community! Keep watching the blog for more details.
