 Saturday 5th May 2012

By Becky Bruzas and Matthew Hellett

It was really good! All of the staff and the lovely audience at the Wilshire Music Centre were really warm and welcoming. It was a lovely venue!

It was Becky’s first On The Road event. She says: “It was quite nerve-wracking and a bit overwhelming as I stepped into the venue. I didn’t expect it to be like that! After the first screening I felt a lot better and I really enjoyed it. It was fab and I’m looking forward to working on the next one.”

We hope that the Oska Bright films have inspired all of the people who saw the films. They’ve told us how much they want to make their own – they already use Flip Cams so they’re half way there.

We showed “Films By Young People – Screenings 1 and 2” from Oska Bright 2011. The audience really liked “The Pirate and The Mermaid”, “Staying Safe”, “Teeth the Musical” and “History in Motion”.

Goodbye Bradford-on-Avon – we look forward to seeing some of you at Oska Bright 2013!
