'Weapons? Discuss...' is a consultation film made in collaboration with young people across Leeds. This film spearheads AMI's commitment to spreading the weapons awareness message amongst young people all over the UK. The project was born out of our desire to provide targeted participants with a programme of activity that could help them improve upon their existing ICT skills, whilst collaborating to produce a resource for weapons awareness practitioners within the community, as well as supporting emerging musical artists from around the city.
The film features on a forthcoming DVD project aimed directly at schools and youth groups. This film stands in stark contrast to the majority of films exploring the issue of gun and knife crime amongst Britain's young people as it was created through direct consultation with young people. The film provides tthe young people with the oppurtunity to articulate their opinions on the causation, culture, and future of gun and knife crime, and thus the film offers an insightful view into the reality of the issue. The film was graded in a monochrome black and white and it was shot with high specification prime lenses.
