Hive Films have wrapped on the Shine A Light funded short film ‘My Jedi Powers’. Shot over four days in Derbyshire (Dovedale), and Leicestershire (Beacon Hill) with Audrey Ardington (Dr Who), Willow Davies (A Dozen Summers) and Steven Dolton (Zombie Undead). The film was shot in conjunction with the 99th Garrison – a independent Star Wars costuming group.
Shine A Light is a participatory film making project funded by the Esmée Fairburn Foundation and delivered by QUAD, Derby. The project comes out of the success of QUAD Shorts, which was designed to give film-makers the chance to produce new work and was supported by Creative England. Shine A Light links film-makers with over 60’s groups to provide older members of the community an opportunity to show that retirement and old age is a time to enjoy our passions, as well as learn new skills.
12 short films have been commissioned over the two years of the project. All films will be shown at a private screening and submitted to national film festivals.
