I’m currently brainstorming ideas so I can apply for Random Acts at some point when I’ve got something solid to work with.
What is Random Acts? Random Acts is a scheme that works with Channel 4 which gives opportunities to young people/artists to produce their ideas giving them funding and support. All films get uploaded to the Channel 4 website however some will be chosen to be broadcast on TV.
I discussed some of my basic ideas with Emily and as we were discussing something themed on mental health/autism which was one of my ideas she showed me an example of one of her pieces which she did on dyslexia which was a personal film of hers to show me one way of expressing ideas. I think this helped and it hit home a little as I have autism and my mother has dyslexia and we’ve both had mixed experiences of the education system whilst growing up with those things and some of the below felt connectable to our experiences as well.
