The deadline to get your applications in for Round 2 of the Random Acts project is fast approaching, so if you’ve got great ideas and a creative streak, we want to hear from you now!
The Random Acts Project is an Arts Council England-funded initiative that invites 16-24 year olds, who live or study in the South West, to submit their short film ideas for the chance to turn them into a broadcast-quality short film.
Applying is easy – just visit the application page here and download an application pack, then fill it in and return to us on firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for this round is September 28th and a batch of chosen films will go into production soon after.
Selected filmmakers for Round 2 are invited to a fully funded training camp in Bristol on October 9th-11th and will then be given the budget, guidance and support to turn their idea into a short film. These films, once completed, have the chance to be featured on the Random Acts website – or even in a Channel 4 broadcast.
This is an opportunity that could be the start of an exciting career in film for you: no previous filmmaking experience is required – you just need the creativity and passion to bring your idea to life.
If you can’t submit an application this round, don’t worry. Round 3 will open for applications as soon as Round 2 closes, with the next batch of films being selected in March 2016.
