Young Filmmakers Glasgow is about to enter its 10th week in existence and before we call 'Cut' for the Christmas break, I've decided to brush you up on our going-ons and also lay out our plan of 'Action!' for the future. First, introductions. We're a small, young, hip, not-so-Glaswegian community made up of 16-25 year olds with the common goal of making it in the film industry - or just making films for fun! We meet every Wednesday night at 5:30pm in the West End of Glasgow, and we are a surprisingly varied menagerie of culture with Scots, Frenchmen, Spaniards, Germans and more. Our first ever meeting was a small company of three and it was great, but our last was probably the biggest and most ambitious so far. We finished shooting our first project a couple of weeks ago - The Interview, a 3 minute short film which is currently in post (lots of photos can be checked out both on our Facebook page, and our Meetup page, and a blog post to come!). It was an enjoyable, and stressful first shoot, and I hope our hard work shines through the screen when it premiere's on February 5th at Cafe Flicker! What awaits this month is another short, Let The Dry Land Appear. I'm personally really excited about this because it's something I've not conceived - it's someone else's vision which gets to come to life because of this group. That is the crux of the group, and it's currently underway. I mentioned at the start that we are small. Small in quantity, but huge in vision. We want to grow, we want - essentially - a powerful voice in Scotland's film industry. There's nothing more important than potential, harnessing it and developing it - young people are the potential filmmakers of the future. This group is a way of getting experience, networking, and an excuse to go to a coffee shop for a couple of hours (in the West End no less), so get off your director's chairs and get going! We want more enthusiastic, committed members with vision. We want power in numbers. We want to give opportunities to every creative young person across Glasgow. And we want to make good film - so we need your help, whether you're a writer, director, producer, cinematographer, storyboard artist, sound person, assistant director, gaffer, costume designer, composer or just want to be on set (who doesn't). And before you worry, you don't need experience - this group's about getting experience. We have many exciting new projects planned for 2015: The Art of Being, a dystopian epic set in Glasgow, Recognition, which will be a bridge to a feature hopefully, a documentary about a Frenchman in Glasgow, and several other shorts that want making! Bring your ideas and scripts along and help others' fruits come to fruition. There's hope yet! Join and RSVP for weekly Meetups here: http://www.meetup.com/YoungFilmmakersGlasgow/.
