Gerald Shimidzu attended The Screen Community’s first workshop.  He became the first to have his script chosen and he took this through to production. This instilled in him the drive to take A’Levels and he is now in his final year of university studying film. He has continued to be an active member of our organisation helping out on subsequent workshops.  He is keen to be a director of the organisation and will be assisting us with youth engagement and workshop plans.

Khalid O’Beirne was introduced to us by an organisation working with those at risk from gang involvement.  He was a keen member of the group and his script was chosen for production.  Khalid is very outspoken on the needs of young people and how they are conveyed as being ‘animalistic’ (the title of his film) and he would like to play a role in changing that perception.  He is keen to be a director of the organisation to assist us in youth engagement and paths to employment and further education.
