We hired a taxi for us to drive to Halesworth in East Anglia, this is the only OSKA BRIGHT 'On The Road' screening in the East of England.

We had a nice meal and a pint in a pub and then went back to our beautiful hotel.

The next day we went to 'The Cut' which is a theatre. We showed our films and Stephen and I did jobs like giving out leaflets, selling T-shirts and keyrings, introducing screenings and talking to people.

There was dancing in between the film screenings because Oska Bright was part of a bigger festival called 'Travelling Light'. We thought that was really good. Over 300 people came to see the films and they said they want us to come back in 2010.

At the end of he day we went to a very nice Italian restaurant with a local artist called Sophie.

The next day we went back to 'The Cut'and ran the Oska Bright master class. We made a film about a dog who wanted to go to the moon; everyone had a good time and learnt alot about film making. Three people who came to the workshop said that they were going to make films for Oska Bright 2009.
