Where are you from?

The Swansea Bay Film Festival is currently in Swansea and whilst I was there the common questions were brought up, "Where are you from" or "Are you local?" With the film medium stretching to all areas of the world it means people have found out about Swansea’s involvement. Film makers had travelled from various places, e.g. Chicago, Austria, Denmark and local areas of Wales. They all have one thing in common – the hunger to make a movie.

At the festival there are small films called "Shorts". A short would only last for a few minutes. "Where are you from?" is going to be a short film about you. What you say could be anything? You might start out with, "I’m from Wales but I love talking about the buildings of Wales." How would YOU answer it? If you would like to spend five minutes talking about yourself then we’ll be meeting up at Monkey Bar in Swansea Wed 19th May , Thur 20th May or Fri 21st May 2010 from 11 A.M. to 1 P.M..

Monkey bar can be found at :-

13 Castle Street, Swansea, SA1 1JF, Wales, UK | 01792 480822

Hi All,

Thanks to the members that turned up today. It was great to see you all and hope you enjoyed the meeting. It was stated that a flip-camera is available to be borrowed by members to shoot their video. Each member would shoot their video as they wanted and then it can be edited and uploaded to Youtube by Neil if required. Some video footage has already been taken. It's up to the film maker how they video the message "Where are you from?"

TOMORROW AND FRIDAY HAVE BEEN CANCELLED AS MOST MEMBERS COULD MEET UP NEXT ON TUE 1ST JUNE 2010 AT MONKEY BAR AT 11 A.M. AS A GROUP.

Thanks

Neil
