“Inspired by the Welborne Area”


Another first for the Welborne Arts Festival

For 2013, Welborne Arts Festival commissioned 7 short films from the School of Film, Television and Media Studies at the University of East Anglia.  The remit was to produce films that would engage with Welborne, or the rural Norfolk community.  Students spent the spring period in and around the environs of Welborne and Mattishall to produce films shown at the festival.  Themes were diverse, including some fictional and non-fictional films, plus documentaries giving an insight into the lives and possessions of local residents.

One film, “The Mattishall Alien” was made by children from Mattishall primary school, another “NR20 by NR20” by local residents during a weekend workshop, both were edited by the students. The making of both of these films was documented by the UEA students running the workshops – we defy you not to smile at our antics, and to recognise the problems of frozen fingers during the coldest weather imaginable. The remaining five films were made entirely by the students.

Thanks go to the students who produced the films as part of their final year projects for the Professional Video Production module, their tutor, Roger Hewins, and the residents of NR20 for their enthusiasm and giving their time so generously.
