New filmmaking competition: Nature in Your Neighbourhood
As the coronavirus/COVID-19 situation continues, and schools are closed and everyone is adjusting to life under lockdown, perhaps this time at home has allowed you and your children to become more aware of your immediate surroundings - the nature and the outside world in your local area. Perhaps you're noticing the change of season in your local environment in a way you didn't before? With fewer cars on the road, fewer planes in the sky, and a little more silence, are you noticing a difference? Has the lack of human activity made a difference where you live, and is that difference a positive thing, or a negative?
Intofilm want children and young people to create a short film and use nature and their surroundings in an engaging and creative way, to capture the calmness and document something they've noticed or appreciated while spending more time in their local area. Whether it's in the garden, the local park, or even from inside the home, the natural world is all around us. Encourage children to get creative and use their natural surroundings to make a short film, 3 mins or under in length (including titles and credits) using what equipment you have in the home. Films can be made on a mobile phone, tablet or camera, and Intofilm have a range of filmmaking resources to help support you.
Submit your film and be in with a chance of winning some amazing prizes. The makers of the winning film will receive a home filmmaking bundle worth £300, and two runners up will get their hands on a year's subscription to Netflix. The closing date for entries is Friday 19 June 2020.
