A production company is on the lookout for young talent to help produce their latest venture.

Scruffbag Productions are giving young people the chance to receive one-to-one mentoring from film industry professionals and create a short film.

The project; ‘Film 5: The Drum’, will be based on the theme of regeneration and ties in with the imminent unveiling of Brent Council’s new civic centre.

The film will be premiered at the official opening party of the new council offices in Wembley as well as receiving official recognition on the IMDB, the film industry’s largest global database.

To be in with a chance of working on the film, residents are encouraged to attend a series of free workshops across the borough.

The workshops, which are available to 15-25-year-olds, will cover acting, directing, producing, writing and cinematography and five lucky people will be selected following their conclusion.
