What Do Young Londoners Care About? Part 1: In Pictures

See what went down during the final screening for Creativity Works: Rushes in this two-part recap

16 August 2019

In February 2019, a group of our trainees completed their Creativity Works: Rushes course, a rollercoaster ride that gave them all the ins and outs of the exciting world of post-production. After all the workshops, networking, planning, shooting and editing, they were ready to show their short films at Untold Studios to a panel of industry experts and invited guests, high above Old Street in London.

Here's a recap if the evening.

Nerves and excitement as the team for the lights to go down and the films to begin. Lots of chat comparing notes - until the screening began.

Safiyyah created "Look Up", one of the films that was shown (when you're done here, head to the next post to see hers and all the others).

Meet the panel. Darren O’Kelly (co-founder of Untold Studios), Lisette Nice (founder and managing director at Factory Studios), Melody Sylvester (executive producer and head of VFX at RSA Films) and Charlie Gatsky (specialist consultant for Creativity Works: Rushes). They gave a lot of valuable feedback to all the trainees, which was all well received.

The team had also taken workshops from Tim & Barry during their course, so it was great to have Barry Edmunds in attendance, with words of encouragement.

After the screening, it was time for networking and mingling...

...along with some well-earned pizza...

...and even some magic tricks from Eric, one of the trainees.

A successful evening was had by all, with some incredible work from the team. Looking to see all the films? Check out our rundown in the next post.
