Ignition Random Acts


In 2015, as part of a joint intuitive from the Arts Council and Channel 4, a number of 16-24 year-olds were given the opportunity to make their own 90 seconds to 3 minute experimental short.

Screen South worked in partnership with the Ignition Network, Fly Film and post production house Molinare to guide the young people from concept, through all aspects of the production process, to completion of broadcast quality films, where they were given the opportunity to be picked up for online or terrestrial broadcast. Throughout the three years, over 66 short films were either broadcast or shown online as part of Channel 4’s Random Acts series

“Thank you for giving me the opportunity to create Crashing Waves! It’s what got me spotted. I owe you a massive thank you!”
