Music Television
Leeds Shopping Plaza. April 28th 2011

Music Television is a creative media opportunity funded by Lumen, It seeks to bring together young and emerging filmmakers and musicians from Leeds and the West Yorkshire region to collaborate on short-film projects and music video.

Over 2011 we aim to produce three Music Television films. The first in the series is currently being edited and will be launched on April 28th 2011 > event details below.

Episode 1 is called ‘1981’, Directed by Matt Green and Produced by Matt Green and James Islip. The video features work by students from Leeds Film School, young people from Cloth Cat / Old Chapel Studios in Holbeck and Armley-based punk rock band The Magnificent.

The film identifies the tough situation faced by young people growing-up in under-developed areas of our city, such as Holbeck. The story looks at teenage life around the time of Charles and Diana’s Royal Wedding, juxtaposed with modern images of teenagers on the waste-grounds created by the demolition of Leeds Council Housing.

Through music and filmmaking, we hope to create a positive and sustainable outlet for young people involved in the project.
