Penzance / 1 November 2007

By June Hall and Stephen Firshman

June and I went to in Cornwall with Mark and Simon to start Oska Bright ‘On the Road’.

It took a long time to get there but after a nice meal and a sleep in a comfy bed we were ready for work the next day.

Not very many people came to the film screenings on Tuesday which was a shame, but on Wednesday lots of people came to the master class. People said that the master class was very interesting and made them want to make films for Oska Bright 2009. We made a film together about a Hippo. BBC Spotlight came to the workshop and interviewed us for the TV.

This was the first time we had shown films in Cornwall and we hope to show more there in the future.
