The films received their premieres at a special showcase earlier this week.

Freehand would like to thank Jackie Passmore and Alex Harrison who were our film mentors on this project and our fantastic facilitators Trish Hallam and Adam Cain, who kept everyone in order! I'd also like to thank Liverpool Youth Service, especially Tracy Ramsey and Patrick Graham-Patrick got so into it that he features in two of the 4 films!

They all gave 110% to the project and I think you can really tell by the quality of the films. The biggest thanks must go to the brilliant young filmmakers that we have here tonight. Their commitment, ideas and positive attitude meant that the project was fun, valuable and we created some brilliant films.

Of course, I must also thank First Light who supported us to deliver this project through National Lottery funds.

The project ran over seven weekends covering the whole filmmaking process, from idea development all the way through to editing. You can read more about it here.
