Barking and Dagenham youngsters make in on to TV
Eight creative youngsters from Barking and Dagenham have seen their short film shown on a national TV station.
Gas to the Max, a film about friendship and first impressions by teenagers from youth charity, Catch 22, was screened on the The Community Channel on Tuesday.
The group, based on Barking’s Gascoigne Estate, took part in the Community Channel’s Talent Studio, a project created and run by young people to give them a chance to tell their stories and get their voices heard.
They were trained in filmmaking by a proffessional media trainer and a volunteer media industry mentor.
Chloe Farenden, 14, said of her Talent Studio experience: “It’s been really interesting, I wanted it to carry on longer and it’s the kind of thing I want to do when I’m older,”
