Unsung Voices is Reel Asian's Summer Production Workshop where young people are given training to produce their first short film. Congratulations to this year's selected bunch!
The production workshop kicked off a couple weeks ago. From the day the participants Betty, Christina, Nicole, Shehzeb, Simu and Tiffany have been whipped into filmmaking form by the lead workshop facilitator Tony Lau as well as by Aram Collier, and mentors Nathalie Younglai and Arthur Yeung. Production on their films start this weekend and the youth are sweating a little more than usual while they nervously prepare for their shoots. After last year's successful launch of the program, we're eager to see what this year's group turns out. Good luck!
The finished films will receive a worldwide premiere at the 17th Annual Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival in November 2013.
