2BME - It Gets Better ... Today

In February, the national organisation Stonewall launched the 'It gets better ... today' film competition. The aim of which was to produce a 3min film made by young people aged between 16-21, to raise awareness of the 'it gets better ... today' campaign.

The 2BME group rose to the challenge and got award winning filmmaker, Stephen Clarke, in to help develop their ideas and produce an entry.

Over the course of a few weeks and an intense weekend of filming the group completed their entry and submitted it for the competition.

We have just learned that the film came 4th, and although not making the top 3 shortlisted films, the judges praised the film very much, complementing its originality.

As 2BME's lead worker, I am over the moon with the finished product, and so proud of those who took part in this project, they have all achieved so much from doing this and hope they look back fondly in the future.
