The Connect Project is a co-production with Bright Productions in Lochaber and Full Table Productions in Plymouth.
The aim: To bring together a writer, an actor and a director over zoom and turn a writer's short story, poem or monologue about Lockdown into a short film. Despite a challenging year, we hope to build new creative relationships across the UK.
This voluntary project taken on in our own time, explores artistic connecting and creativity through 2020. We wanted to provide a digital platform for writers to write, actors to act and directors to direct.
Don't forget to keep checking back as we add more videos over November.
THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE INVOLVED!
