Teenagers' inspiring anti-piracy seen by thousands at NYFF
Reading time: 41 seconds
An anti-piracy film created by a group of teenagers from Dorset was seen by over a quarter of a million people at The National Youth Film Festival earlier this month.
Ten 14-year-olds from Wey Valley School and Sports College produced the short to highlight the impact film theft has on professionals employed in the audiovisual industries. The film, entitled Vin Diesel's Socks, takes an irreverent look at how a single payment can make a difference to even the biggest blockbusters.
Working with professional filmmaking organisation My Pockets, the teenagers were involved in making the puppets, recording audio, shooting the film and helping with the final edit. You can enjoy Vin Diesel's Socks below.
