My 15 year old daughter Lucy thought it would be fun to make a silent movie, to enter for the International Youth Silent Film Festival.
Never mind that she is 5 years younger than the age limit. Never mind that – unlike the other entrants – she had no training, support or facilities made available to her by any school or college. She decided to do at all alone, to see if she could win through to the finals in Oregon, USA next June. So she made her movie, Mirror.
She has only bloody done it! The only independent production from the state has just won through!
It is here.
I am very proud of her.
