Midlands Movies Spotlight – Lucy Young in Derbyshire
Filmmaker and Photographer Lucy Young is a new up and coming talent from Derbyshire. Midlands Movies Mike checks out her latest film...
Lucy is just 18 years old and yet she has been filming since I she was a sprightly 14 and in that time has honed her skills and is just about to release a new short film online.
Made back in 2014 Lucy is also already planning another major short film to begin production in the summer.
Describing herself as a “kinda 'prolific” filmmaker, Lucy has filmed up to 20 films in a single year and is part of the Derby filmmaking group Five Lamp Films. She is a regular at their meetings and has put on a film at every 5 Lamps for nearly two yearrs and nnext up on her plate, Lucy hopes to release ‘Life in a Box’ which is a crowd-funded film with a small budget of £950. The film tells the story of a guy called Freddie who believes he is trapped inside a television.
“It’s a quasi-romance psychological thriller with bits of surrealism”, explains Lucy with the unveiling of the film a much anticpated event for all those involved.
Lucy goes on to add, “The film was made in and around Derby and Nottinghamshire using only local cast and crew. I was only 17 when I made it and it was shot in around 2 days”.
The film will be shown at Five Lamps on 5th July 2015 so interested parties should head down to their next meeting in order to see ‘Life in a Box” whilst Lucy hopes that the viewing will also get people interested in donating to her next project due later in Summer.
