A Derry independent film company which has launched a 'Short Film Series' is looking for local young people to feature as 'extras' in future productions.

Black North Productions have grown in both recognition and stature within the last four years and almost 3,500 people have viewed their two most recent films on YouTube – 'Wish You Were Here' and 'Right Reasons for Wrong.'

The third film in their Troubles’ Trilogy, 'Half Ticket- No Return.' will be partly funded by the Waterside Credit Union through their Community Programme.

The film deals with important topics such as suicide, drug addiction and homelessness and is due for release in June this year.

Meantime, Black North intend to highlight social issues through their 'Social Shorts Series' which will deal with issues affecting everyday people such as poverty, unemployment, loneliness and isolation, additional learning needs, cyber bullying, sectarianism and debt.

Black North are seeking up to 100-plus young people as extras for a music video that they will be shooting soon and for a school based film in September.

They can be contacted through their Facebook page or by emailing jmacbnorth@google

The school-based film revolves around 'Saint Saviours Secondary School' and important issues such as bullying, autism and Down Syndrome are dealt with in this intriguing and innovate short film.

Plain burgundy school jumpers of all sizes are needed for the film and anyonewho may have a spare burgundy school jumper, can drop it off at Mickey Clifford’s shop at Shantallow or contact Black North’s Facebook page and they will arrange collection.

Rehearsals for all forthcoming productions take place on a rolling basis at the Derby Bar in Great James Street and the company would like to thank the management of the Derby Bar for their ongoing support and Waterside Credit Union for their generous financial donation.

Anyone who would like to join Black North Productions to help in any way can email or simply contact them via their Facebook page.
