Writer/director Alan De Pellette ran the writing course over 10 weeks resulting in the completion of 9 scripts. Alan scheduled and filmed with the writers over 3 weeks in March 2008. Individually and collectively the films are of such high standard that they were submitted to film festivals and won an award at the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival in 2009. This is a great achievement, considering the small budget involved and also the fact that this started out as screenwriting workshops for first time writers. The Films were premiered at the Glasgow Film Theatre to a turnout of over 200 people.
The project was undoubtedly a success and massively exceeded its initial ambitions. The scale of achievement goes beyond nine well written, acted and produced short films – the social, personal and collaborative progress that, in the end, involved almost 100 people, are equally significant. This project raised the bar for community film production and inspired many local people to participate in film-making projects at the Portal.
