U. K. Filmmaker Support The Write Stuff Literacy Campaign

U.K. Filmmaker Supports The Write Stuff Literacy Campaign

The Creator of The Write Stuff Reality Show came across his short film while watching videos on Youtube, but it was only a matter of time before the talent of 19-year old Tom Sands surfaced. Living in the United Kingdom, he has produced several films and is making a name for himself, allowing inspiration to be his guide. Tom Sands has now joined Shadow Play Entertainment in promoting reading and The Write Stuff literacy campaign. Name: Tom Sands

Age: 19

Hometown: Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent, UK

How long have you been involved in filmmaking? I have been making short films since I was 15. I have made over 25 now and I'm happy with about three of them! I have also written screenplays, and have recently signed with a London agency as a writer. I have done my bit as a runner and an assistant and hated it, as I'm sure everyone does.

How did the idea for the short film The Write Stuff come about? The central idea of the film is that writing is hard. It is not as easy as many people think. I know this now! Most of the time it requires severe emotional strain, significant catharsis, and a great deal of frustration. I wanted to show this side of creativity but show that if one relaxes, if one feels those feelings, the result can often be inspiration. (See the video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5mx_YsjJfg.)
