    To celebrate this year’s Scottish Mental Health Arts & Film Festival we’ve had an extravaganza of card making!


    With a vast variety of materials we’ve decorated, embossed, embellished and arranged our way through cards to celebrate Birthdays, Christmas, Thank You notes and more.
    We’d like to give a big and warm thank you to Julie-Anne and Elizabeth for teaching us such wonderful techniques and tricks.

    With just a week to go until Life Is A Cabaret, the Seniors Film Club were busy at work with Bryan Tolland yesterday to add the final pizzazz to their set for the night. The group have been learning how to write and perform their own songs and, as ever, having a rare ol’ time to themselves in the process!

    So last night was an exciting time for 2 of our Cre8 Crew members. They were invited onto the Riverside Show to talk about their movie ‘Much Ado about Govan’. Chanelle and Robert were fantastic and showed no sign of nerves when being asked to talk about the project. Everyone at Plantation Productions is very proud of our young people and are so excited that after all their hard work, finally get recognition. We can now focus on the viewing of the whole film at this Friday’s Southside Film festival at Kinning Park Complex from 7.30pm. Good job guys, next stop…….. Hollywood!!!!!
