what going on?


Drawn Out is a very important film to us all, it’s more than just a film, it’s hope, a way out and a message to those caught up or stuck in negative situations they don’t want to be in. It’s a look at the reality rather than the sensationalisation of street life, ga ng life, violence and how easy it is to get drawn out. This means the film is harsh at times but we all felt it needed to be to reach those who are in harsh situations and to deal with the rawness of these issues.

A partnership between Fully Focused, Arsenal in the Community and Ambitious Academy, we held over 25 workshops on a north London estate for 8 months, working with people on the estate affected by the issues the film deals with who had no experience of film-making, acting or script writing, to come up with the concept, work on the script, act in the film and work behind the scenes on set. 50% of the cast including one of the leads had never acted before, never been on screen and never been involved in anything like this before. There has been so much achievement from so many people involved already, the project has been a great success. With over 15 young participants from Elthorne and another 15 of the young team from Fully Focused plus some of the best cast and crew in the industry, we are so proud of what we have all achieved together and we are more than gassed about what this film can now go on to achieve.
