This is our first try at making a short film. We were inspired to have a go by a film making friend, Nigel Ward, who instigated screenings of locally made short films in Whitby. He also attempted to establish an International Short Film Festival this autumn, which was effectively prevented from happening by Scarborough Borough Council through(dare I say it?)deliberate implementation of out-dated red-tape. Read more at whitby-in-shorts.org.uk. Hopefully the Festival will happen next year. So, this is for you Nigel, with thanks.
