Anglia Ruskin Film & Television Production students to attend London premiere.
Two projects produced by Anglia Ruskin University students as part of their coursework will feature in a BBC Three programme called Life Through Your Lens to be aired later this year.
One of the films, Jack: Differently Abled, was produced by Film & Television Production students Jo Gill and Hayley Dean, and was released online last year as part of the BBC Fresh series. It follows the day-to-day life of Jack, a student at Impington Village College who also has cerebral palsy.
Jack: Differently Abled has already gained attention after various charities helped to promote it, and the version on YouTube has had over 6,000 views.
Hayley and Jo, now in their final year of the Film & Television Production course at Anglia Ruskin in Cambridge, are currently working on another short documentary, this time focusing on people who care for the disabled. They are looking at the reasons why people volunteer their time to assist those who have disabilities and explore the relationships between carers and the disabled.
X by David Powell, a recent Film & Television Production graduate from Anglia Ruskin, will also be featured on the show. X is a short film about the treatment of disabled people in Portugal compared to the UK.
The filmmakers have been invited to a preview screening of the Life Through Your Lens programme at the BBC’s New Broadcasting House in London tomorrow evening [Thursday, 15 January].
