Neasden man’s film set in Stonebridge Boxing Club to be screen at Kensal Rise cinema
Movie inspired by the Olympics will be shown at the Lexi Cinema
An aspiring film writer is celebrating after winning a competition which will see his production hit the big screen at a Brent cinema.
Daniel Bailey will see his masterpiece The Boxer projected onto the big screen at the Lexi Cinema in Chamberlayne Road, Kensal Rise.
The 22-year-old, who lives in Neasden, has been crowned the winner of Brent’s Project 7 scheme, which encouraged young talent in the borough to help produce a short film inspired by the Olympics.
The initiative was organised by film production company Scruffbag Productions and set out to engage 14 to 24 year olds who were required to write and help produce a short film based on the core Olympic and Paralympic values of respect, excellence, friendship, courage, determination, inspiration and equality.
