A screening of my Fixers film 'BS I Love You' was held at the Station on 28th October 2013. About 50 young people saw the film and had some great things to say. Another audience member to my film was Peter Main, Deputy Lord Mayor of Bristol. He said of my project:
'One of the reasons I like living in Bristol is its sense of community. This film is brilliant as it focuses on why people are lucky to live in such a city.'
Below is some of the positive feedback I have received from young people.
John, 19, from BS1: 'I liked the film as it is trying to bring the Bristol community together.'
Tom, 19, from BS8: 'I thought the film was good and it makes you think. In the film there are a lot of different people saying good things about Bristol, they all found a reason to love the city. The postcode issue is real. For example I wouldn't normally go near an area like St Paul's or Easton, but this film has made me think about why I wouldn't go there. After seeing this film, I would go to these neighbourhoods.'
Jay, 31, from BS37: 'I think the film is really informative and I agree with the aim of the film. In Bristol, there is a great deal of generalising and stereotyping of different areas and the people that live there. You normally tend to only hear about the bad stuff.'
I journeyed around Bristol gaining people's views on what they love about the city. It was very interesting hearing all the different things people love about Bristol. These interviews will be used in my Fixers film.
