Young residents are being given the chance to get in on the “action” both in front of and behind the cameras.
Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s dedicated Cultural Services department is pleased to be helping It’s My Shout Productions as it supports young, new creative talent.
Now in its 10th Year, It’s My Shout assists those who want to break into the media industry in Wales, helping to launch the careers of actors, directors, writers and production crew.
Every summer, it works with BBC Cymru Wales to produce six short films, which are made by local young talent and later broadcast as part of the popular Made In Wales series.
This year, in connection with Arts Connect, via Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Cultural Services and Bridgend County Borough Council’s Arts and Community Development Team, residents aged eight to 25 are being offered the chance to work alongside experienced industry mentors.
Working both in front of and behind the cameras, young participants can help to make the ‘Walk or Fly’ (working title) which will be broadcasted on BBC Cymru Wales in the Autumn.
Rhondda Cynon Taf Arts Development is particularly keen to offer this opportunity to 8-25 year-olds and so to find out more, come to the launch at 5pm on Wednesday, June 13 at the Muni Arts Centre in Pontypridd.
This is a chance for you to register as an actor or part of the production crew, working alongside an industry head of department. Roles include assistant director, sound recording, lighting, hair and make-up, costume, set and prop design, marketing, events and more.

Walk or Fly (working title) will be premiered at the Wales Millennium Centre on Friday October 26th 2012 alongside the other 5 films. All films will then be broadcast on BBC Cymru Wales & BBC iplayer as part of the ‘Made in Wales’ series, followed by a 30 minute documentary which will look over the past 10 years of It’s My Shout and our talented alumni
