‘60 Seconds in the life of…’ Competition

To be completed by:

Time: - | Venue:

Taking inspiration from the play 'An Inspector Calls', we want young people to create an exciting 60-second film about what it’s like to live in Bradford today… and win a chance for it to be shown on the Big Screen in Bradford’s City Park. See attached poster, terms & conditions and entry form.

Brought to you by creative educator Rachel Wood, author and creative facilitator Irene Lofthouse and in association with Bradford Producing Hub, we are running a competition inspired by 'An Inspector Calls'.

The play 'An Inspector Calls' is set in 1912... but we want young people to think about the characters of Eric and Sheila and imagine they are living in Bradford today.  What would their lives be like now? How would it be different? What would they want to say?

Young people can take any creative approach they wish to produce their '60 seconds in the life of...' recreations for Sheila or Eric (for example; storyboards, films, photographs, graffiti, music, scripts, rap, dance...) but they must be no more than 60 seconds long, filmed and emailed to: sixtysecondsinthelifeof@outlook.com by 5pm on Friday 17th January 2020.

Young people could do this as part of their studies towards GCSE English Literature, BTEC in Performing Arts or just to be CREATIVE!

There will be a public screening event of winning entries (subject to copyright) later in 2020, on the BBC Big Screen in Bradford. 

Winners will also be invited to take part in a creative workshop in February 2020, which will involve developing young people's creative skills and ideas, exploring the creative industries and finding out what they want to see more of, in Bradford.

It's an exciting opportunity to be part of future planning for Arts and Culture and we want as many young people (aged 14-16 years) as possible, to participate.

Attached are a poster, terms & conditions and entry form.
