Home Grown Talent 2012 is coming to a close and we have been busy working hard with young people from primary and secondary schools around Canterbury. The theme for the project was music and each film was assigned an artist who worked with the young people to create sound. The artists were musicians of different musical genres, including classical, soul, folk and also beatboxing and DJing.
These films will be premièred to the public on Friday 5th October at Canterbury Anifest as part of the Community Programme, all the young people involved will receive a DVD of the films. This was the 6th year that Home Grown Talent has taken place and in that time we have made 30 films including 6 making-of documentaries showing how the young people created each of their films. Each year the project takes place at Canterbury Christ Church University’s animation department, where the young people get to use professional equipment and animation techniques.
Home Grown Talent is run in partnership with KCC Extended Services, Canterbury Christ Church University, Canterbury City Council and Arts Council.
