I shall advise you not to watch America’s Sweethearts as John Cusack puts in a better performance in the below 20 second clip than he does in an hour and thirty minutes of America’s Sweethearts boredom.
You can use anything from a modern camera phone to a Super 8 camera. The only thing that is needed is to take that footage and put it on Youtube via the WeAreNorthernLights website.
Here is an example of the sort of footage that is needed. An unedited video with no music capturing a bit of Scotland from my perspective.
If that isn’t enough to get you contributing there are some amazing awards for a variety of submissions.
On our way to the next filming location we came across this.
What a wonderful example of vintage charm! Couldnt help myself so I had to pop in and see what it was like.
La Charrette is such a gorgeous wee cinema. Previously one mans pride and joy shared with 70members now it is at the Gower heritage centre. It can be booked for screenings. Amazing atmosphere as you walk in!

2012 has so far been a rather big year for me. Its about to get a lot bigger in the month of May. Two of my short films VINYL TOUCH and DUEL will be screened as part of the 15 Second Film Festival at the Queens Film Theatre, Belfast. These two shorts were both written and directed by me. VINYL TOUCH is about a man with a special skill and DUEL is a window sill battle to the death between two cameras.
This will be my first ever screening so its rather exciting. I of course however am in Wales filming so will not be attending. You however can!
If you head on down to the QFT on Saturday 5th May, the screening starts at 6.45 with doors open at 6. It is free entry with no tickets needed. Heres a link to the FB page with more info about other screenings.
