A Fixer from Cardiff, with a flair for freestyle football, has helped create a film to inspire other young people to unlock their hidden talents.

Ash Randall (24) hopes that after seeing the video, young viewers will be encouraged to try something new.

You can watch the film above.

As well as showcasing his talent in the piece, it also features some of his SBX Entertainment colleagues, whose skills include beat boxing and performing tricks with a basketball.

‘The idea for a film came about after I explained to Fixers how I started my football freestyle work. I had seen a TV commercial featuring a man doing football tricks and it inspired me, it really did change my life,’ says Ash.

‘I thought it would be great to try and create a video showing other young people that they can make that change too, if they find something they love and enjoy doing, and then work hard at it.’

Ash wanted his Fixers film to combine animation with live action.

It begins with the SBX group, as cartoons, explaining how they nurtured their skills to achieve success, and then shifts into real-life footage of the team as they appear on stage to perform to an audience.

‘I’m extremely happy and proud of the film now it’s finished,’ adds Ash. ‘It’s exactly as I wanted it. It’s fantastic and gets across the right message.’

The Fixer would like the video to be shown to as many young people as possible.

‘I’m hoping to take this film in to schools. I’d also want to put on a live football skills demonstration and give a presentation,’ explains Ash.

‘I want to try and get young people to think differently about a talent they might not realise they have.’

His story was shown on ITV News Cymru Wales earlier this month. Click here to watch the broadcast.
