731 Bathgate Nights
2 years of film-making and 9 fantastic films later, this project worked with young people across the area to create a range of interlinked short films, leading to a longer film, Common Ground, for wider screening and distribution.
Huge thanks to all who attended the premiere of Common Ground at Howden Park. The evening was hosted by Firefly’s talented young film-makers and, in addition to Common Ground, we screened the 8 short films that linked into it. Common Ground was created with young people in every key position of the crew. Funded by Creative Scotland and 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 in November– you can view Common Ground, the Show Reel (an excellent intro into how the film was made) and all the link films here: https://vimeo.com/album/2589207
With special thanks to Jen Randall, Geraldine Heaney, Kirsty Byers, Dom Bush, David McKeitch and Euan Ryan
A DVD of all Bathgate 731 films can be ordered from Firefly for £5.
