Young Ilford film-makers to have video screened at national Co-operative Film Festival

A music video made by two young film-makers from Ilford is to be screened at a national festival.

Anthony Smith, 20 and Jordan Willerton, 21, will have their video for Sound Asleep, by Sea of Keys, screened at the 2013 Co-operative Film Festival.

The festival will take place between Wednesday and Friday, July 19.

Anthony, who lives in Clayhall, said: “This is a great opportunity for us to get our work [out to the public and] develop more skills within the industry.

“I personally want to move into producing so it’s a great chance for me to see other producers as well as deal with an aspect of the film industry – festivals – that I have not been involved with before.
