Hi8us Midlands hosted Cultural Olympiad workshops to help young film-makers create short films to be shown at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games

 

London 2012 is urging aspiring young film-makers to apply for their place on the workshops which will take them through the skills involved in making a film.

London 2012 Cultural Olympiad programme Film Nation: Shorts - a short film competition for 14-25 years olds - commissioned Hi8us Midlands as part of a unique national programme of free workshops. The workshops will gave young film-makers the chance to meet professional film-makers and acquire new skills in film-making techniques using the latest state-of-the-art equipment.

Under the guidance of the professionals, the young people made eight short films under themes associated with the Olympic Games.

The winners' work will be screened at the iconic venues of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in London 2012 to an audience of millions. The best films will also be showcased on giant London 2012 Live Site screens around the country, on the London 2012 website, and on a dedicated Film Nation website, with monthly awards leading up to an annual award winners ceremony. Submissions for the competition opened on 23 June 2010, and the competition will be run each year until 2012, showcasing the creative talents of the next generation of young film-makers and giving them a chance to be right at the heart of the Games.
