Constant Pictures, our production team of young filmmakers aged between 15 and 25 successfully recruited six new members this Autumn. They have already been busy making a short film to promote a new online publication, Creativity Money Love as well as working on their own 1 minute films about the Olympic Host Boroughs. Each film focusses on a young person who either lives or works in the borough. Watch the first one here that puts the spotlight on Jareth, an upcoming musical talent who records in Hackney.
