SHEFFIELD aims to be well represented in Britain In A Day, the documentary film project in which the BBC is inviting people from all corners of the country to film a clip about their lives this Saturday.
As part of the Cultural Olympiad, a time capsule of Britain in the form of a feature-length documentary is being created to be screened next year on BBC Two inspired by Ridley Scott’s Life In A Day worldwide project.
On Saturday a unique channel on YouTube will be dedicated to Britain In A Day allowing anyone to upload their footage for consideration in the finished film.
The BBC set up an outreach programme and contacted organisations across Britain to help them target disadvantaged groups to take part in the project. Their Sheffield partner is Justine Gaubert, the founder of Sheffield Social Enterprise Silent Cities, who set up a film making workshop to help people who wouldn’t normally do that kind of thing.
Justine can be contacted for further information on 07967819183, email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to www.bbc.co.uk/britaininaday
