Common Ground, Rare Talent


Huge thanks to all who attended the premiere of Common Ground at Howden Park last Friday. The evening was hosted by Firefly’s talented young film-makers and, in addition to Common Ground, we screened the 8 short films that fed into it.

Funded by Creative Scotland, Common Ground was created with young people in every key position of the crew and is the result of a 2-year film project with communities across West Lothian. Led by Jen Randall, young film-makers created several short films about growing up in West Lothian, using a range of genres that included experimental drama, animation and documentary.

No worries if you missed the premiere – you can view Common Ground, the Show Reel  (an excellent intro into how the film was made) and all the link films here:

Meanwhile thanks to all who’ve contributed to this fantastic project and our excellent young film-makers. Especial thanks to Jen Randall, Geraldine Heaney, Kirsty Byers, Dom Bush, David McKeitch and Euan Ryan

A DVD of all the films can be ordered from Firefly for £5.
