18 year old Lucy from Brighton is passionate about making films but was facing significant financial obstacles which were preventing her from pursing this dream. She had also been accepted onto a Film & Editing course at the BFI in London but was unable to pay for the train fare from Brighton. The Starr Trust provided Lucy with some equipment including a tripod, a laptop, software and a printer, and paid for her travel costs to London.
Update Autumn 2014
Lucy has made a film called Family Matters, inspired by someone dear to her about mental illness. You can watch it here.
