Young film makers of Mansfield shine

TEAM EFFORT: Film makers and supporters got down (and hopefully not dirty) for a group photo. Among the notables are Greg Box (front, fourth from left), senior project officer with the Department of Health and Human Services.

LAST Thursday evening, the young film makers of Mansfield were feted by a large audience who came to view the product of their labours.

The Mansfield Regional Produce Store Youth Film Festival is the culmination of a project undertaken by the FReeZA “Pumped Up” team, backed by the Mansfield Shire Council, the Produce Store and The Armchair Cinema, along with other supporters.

Among those who attended were representatives from Killer Pig Productions, who assisted the students in the development and filming of their work.

“These kids have achieved an amazing outcome given that they did the filming and editing over only one weekend,” said representatives from Killer Pig Productions, brothers Jake and Sandy Bowtell.

Also crucial to the production were staff from the Regional Produce Store, who were on hand on the weekend of the filming to “make sure that the kids were as well fed and watered as they could be”, according to Dean Belle from the ‘Proddy’.

The evening began with a bang when Sandy McKinnon and Sammy Hardiman performed a skit on ‘heroes and villains’, the theme of the films.
