Young Adult Carers – Be Part of a Film Making Project

Fancy dipping your toes into the world of film?

Have a story you’d like to tell?

Ever wondered what it’s like to be on a film set, or how to develop a story for film?

If you’re a young adult carer, aged 18-24 this is the project for you!

Come and join Marnie Baxter, director of award winning short film, Hello, Muscles, to create a short film of your own.

Over a week, work together to develop two short film scripts, which you’ll realise working alongside professional producers, cinematographers, sound recordists and editors. And at the end of the week, you can invite your family and friends to watch them on the big screen at the DCA cinema!

Running from 14th – 21st May 2023
DCA, Dundee

“Hello, Muscles is a short film, starring Kate Dickie (Game of Thrones) and Richard Rankin (Outlander), which explores how it might feel to come to terms with being a young carer. It’s a film highlighting what it means to be strong when caring for someone you love.

My aim in making the film was to encourage conversation around the work that young carers do, and the support available. I want to use the power of film to allow an audience to experience what it might feel like to be a young carer, to encourage more empathy and understanding.

With this project, I’d like to use the film as a springboard not only to spark conversation, but to facilitate the creation of other stories for screen by young adult carers. I want to open the world of screen storytelling to a demographic whose voices we rarely get the chance to hear, whose perspectives might be fresh and interesting, not exclusively about their experience as carers, but about themselves and their lives as they see them.”  Marnie Baxter
