Have your say

A pair of talented young Grantham film-makers are appealing for help from Journal readers to make their dream come true.

Anthony Aitman and Adam Sandy have entered a short film they made for a competition offering valuable film equipment as a prize.

They want Journal readers to take a look at their movie, and vote for it if they are impressed.

The amusing film, called Wonders of the Wild, is subtitled “a wildlife documentary showing one of our most loved pets” and, suffice to say, is not all as it first appears.

It is up against other short films from around the world in the My RØDE Reel 2014 contest, supported by Rode microphones.

Anthony and Adam have also made a behind-the-scenes guide to the making of their film, which can also be viewed.

Anthony, 27, from Caythorpe, studied graphic design at Grantham College and animation at university. He now runs a clothing business.

He said: “The competition is worldwide and is to win a load of great filming gear worth around $70,000, which could progress our dreams of being film-makers.”

Adam Sandy, 21, lives in Alma Park and also went to Grantham College, to study computing, and then visual effects at university.

He owns a website design and video production business, and employs his fellow film-maker as a freelancer.
