A new, innovative film company has recently made its debut in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, United Kingdom. A group of young people including recent graduates in Photography and Film Production created the company and held an opening event at their newly re-furbished premises in Scunthorpe's retail region in co-operation with other business organisations. Local Artist member Monique Le Blanc is part of that company ready to make its mark on the local community and the Film Industry.
Hugh Adamson and Jason Marris were brought together by Edward Taylor and by their shared love for film making. Monique Le Blanc, the producer, brought her extensive business knowledge in the film industry to the mix. Edward Taylor was assigned the role of executive producer.The determination, enthusiasm and creative prowess were the ingredients mixed together by the two young chefs of film. Hugh, with his creative talent and Jason, with his technical mastery are ready to cook their masterpiece. After much deliberation the name was chosen. "Let There Be Light Productions". It was chosen for its metaphorical meaning of the dispelling of ignorance. It was based on the company ethos of intelligent, thought provoking and meaningful film making.
As part of "Bradford City of Film", a 2010 event aimed at returning Bradford to its natural place as the Home of The National Film Museum, the Fourty-Eight Hour Film Challenge, One Title one Prop, was held in the Autumn. Each contending Film Group were set the task of producing a script, casting, shooting, editing and burning to CD a short film. Each Production was screened and accolades for Best Script with a Special Mention for Cinematography were given to "Flesh and Blood", one of the few top films, presented by Let There be Light Productions.
The future aims of the company are to make films for the local community and provide 16-25-year olds with new skills and experience in the Film Industry. Here at Local Artist we wish the newly-emerged company every success.
