YOUNG people in Clevedon will soon be able to have the chance to produce their own film projects - thanks to an initiative between cinema chiefs, youth workers and North Somerset Council.The project will provide opportunities to young people between the ages of 13 and 19 and be run between the council, The Curzon Cinema and The Barn Youth Centre in the town.It will encourage young people to take part in workshops on scripting, writing, storyboarding, direction and production of film and video material with the final product being shown to the public at The Curzon.Spokesman for The Barn, John Neal said: "We are delighted to be working with The Curzon and North Somerset Council on this exciting new project."It is a real chance for young people in Clevedon to learn new skills and use the media of film to explore current social issues."Curzon general manager Jon Webber said: "This is going to be a great project. Who knows, some of our local young people might be inspired to develop the skills they learn and turn this into a Hollywood career. We could be showing their first full length features at The Curzon in a few years time."The recruitment of a new senior youth worker to organise and run the project is currently underway.Anyone interested in applying should contact John Neal on 01275 343990.
