Film and media students have explored topics including conflict, terrorism and mental health as part of a work experience placement.
The students, who were placed at Make A Difference Entertainment (MADE) in Hayes, wrote, shot and edited their own films using locations in and around the area. The films are now being featured on YouTube.
The films include:
- Break the Cycle, directed by Kageth Kathirgamalingam - a moment of conflict between two young men escalates with tragic consequences.
- Bombed at the Bus Stop, directed by Andrew Cannon - a man is forced to confront his racial prejudices when he mistakes an Asian man for a terrorist.
- Free Your Mind, directed and starring Farris Simmons - a short piece about a man unable to escape his mental illness.
MADE is a social enterprise dedicated to creating brighter futures for London’s diverse communities through the co-production of innovative and engaging digital content.
David Lashbrook said: “The MADE project is not only a great opportunity for media students to learn about moving image production in a professional environment, but helps raise awareness about ethical issues and negative media stereotypes.”
The following Uxbridge College students, who are studying towards UAL Level 3 Diploma in Creative Media Production & Technology, are also currently working for the MADE project:
