Well done to St Peter’s Guides in Bandon whose film on homelessness was well received at the recent Gold Awards in Dublin’s Gresham Hotel. You can watch the film on You Tube!
Here four of the Guides explain their role in making the film…
Eva Holland: “My role was to get a venue for filming and to get costumes for the actors. I had to see what costume best suited each actor and what venue was best suited for filming.”
Luigsech O’Neill: “I was the director. My job was making sure the camera and sound equipment was all in the right place. I also had to make sure the actors were in the right place at the right time.”
Jessica Gill: “We decided to make our film about homelessness after the Cork Simon Community visited our Guides. We collected socks, scarves and gloves for the homeless people that Simon works with. Then the opportunity came to work with the YMCA on social justice issues: this fitted in with our work for our Gold Award so we decided to make a short film. The film compares the life of a privileged person with that of a homeless person.”
Eve Cullinane: “I was the main actress. While making this short film I realised how much we have, how lucky we are and how homeless people don’t even have a quarter of what we have.”
Well done to St Peter’s Guides on producing such a thought-provoking film J
