Random Acts: Opportunity for creative young people & film-makers

We’re excited to be hosting a second free workshop as part of Random Acts North, an amazing opportunity for young people aged 16-24yrs to create stunning short films.

The workshop takes place on Saturday 30th January at Signal Film and Media. This is a fantastic opportunity to be in with the chance to create work for Channel 4’s Random Acts short film strand!

The Random Acts Centre for the North is looking for Short Film Ideas by 16-24 Year-Olds. From dancers and poets, to filmmakers and artists, we’re looking for young people with the boldest and freshest ideas for short films. If you are aged between 16 and 24 and live or study in the North of England (Cumbria, North East, North West or Yorkshire) you can apply to make a film with a budget of £4000.

 What is Random Acts?

They are bold expressions of creativity delivered in short film form. They come in many flavours: live action, animation, serious, cheeky; made by dancers, visual artists, poets, musicians, writers, filmmakers; they are between 90 seconds and 3 minutes long.

The people behind Random Acts

Random Acts is a partnership between Arts Council England and Channel Four. The Arts Council has appointed five Random Acts Network Centres across England that offer education, training and production support for 16-24 year olds working in a diverse range of art forms to create short films designed for inclusion as part of the Random Acts strand on television and online. Tyneside Cinema is the lead organisation for Random Acts Centre North, working in partnership with a wide range of organisations to enable young people to access this opportunity.
