Now in it’s 11th year, It’s My Shout Productions Ltd specialises in producing short films for television and screen. Every year we produce up to 30 short films for BBC Wales, S4C, UK Film Council and the Arts Council of Wales, to name a few.
For each production; we work closely with other companies, community associations, drama groups, primary schools as well as further education & higher education establishments, to find the best new talent in Wales.
Our award winning films have been shown all over the world on; BBC Wales, ITV Wales, S4C, Channel 4, The Euro Channel (Broadcast all over the world), on BBC ‘Big Screens’ (across all the major U.K. Cities), at Glastonbury Festival (as part of a specialist short film screening), and at Film Festivals around Europe including; The Celtic Film Festival and The Berlin Film Festival. We have also won several BAFTA Cymru Awards.
We provide hands on training for young people, alongside industry professionals. The main ethos of It’s My Shout is to engage young people in a creative activity that can inspire and grow confidence. But not just that, we also aim to provide them with both hard skills (e.g. camera, sound, locations, runners, production assistants, animation, composing, acting, chaperoning, editing, hair & makeup, costume, set design, 2nd AD, 3rd AD) and soft skills which can be transferable in every aspect of their lives.
Each summer we produce 8 short films as part of a national summer television training scheme and in 2011, nearly one thousand young people from across Wales took part. The last three years have been supported by BBC Wales who also broadcast the films each Autumn, alongside a 30 minute ‘behind-the-scenes’ documentary, under the “Made in Wales” series banner. This year we are excited to have been supported by S4C, who will be broadcasting two of our Welsh language films this Autumn.
