On June 3rd, 21 children from the Powys writing squads worked with Tom Barrance and poet Francesca Kay to create poem films at the Hay Festival. They only had four hours: an hour and a half in the morning to learn about filming, shoot their images and write the first draft of their poems; and two and a half hours in the afternoon to refine their poems, perform and record them, edit their images to the poems and screen them. Funded by Academi.
