The second film in the 'Uncommon Shorts' trilogy made by young people with First Light funding. The young people were involved in the creation of the films from storyboarding to post production with workshops lead by Littlestar Media Production, Cornerhouse and Manchester Youth Volunteering Project.
The films were shown at a special screening at Cornerhouse in and also screened at 7th Salford Film Festival in 2010.

Spring Trinity - Young People's Filmmaking Workshops 2008 - 2009
Littlestar delivered a rolling programme of film training workshops for Manchester Youth Volunteering Project (MYVP), with the aim of producing three short films for competition. The workshops took the young people through the process of film production from script to final festival submission.
The first film Running Fast [Japanese with English subtitles], was shot in East Manchester.
These workshops followed on from the success of the 'Who Do You Think We Are' film that was screened at the Labour Party Conference in 2008.

Littlestar Media Production in partnership with Manchester Youth Volunteering Project and Cornerhouse were successful in gaining funding from First Light for three projects involving young people.
The funding enabled us to deliver a rolling programme of film training workshops with young people from July 2009 through to June 2010. The workshops took the young people through the whole process of film production from script to final edit.
These workshops produced the films that form Uncommon Shorts. Journey is the final film in this series.
