On the 15th March, to celebrate the hard work that has gone into creating and producing our first film ‘Lies We Own, we will hold a launch party where we will premiere our new film. The event has a Hollywood theme with entertainment from a Frank Sinatra-style singer and guests are to be greeted by Hollywood look-likes on arrival.
The night will include a talk from the head of our associated charity, Trevor Palmer, who set up ResponsABLE Assistance; a charity that sends vital disability equipment to disaster zones around the world. Guests will be invited to donate to our raffle at the end of the night with all proceeds going to RA.
It has taken all those involved in the making of ‘Lies We Own’ a long while to reach this final stage. The process, which has been self-financing, has involved discussing and finalising the film ideas and its message, then writing the script, filming, adding sound and music and eventually editing, which overall has taken over 18 months. We will be proud to show our guests what we have created and we hope it will be successful.
Many people have helped organise the event such as the Ready family as well as Trevor Palmer and Beth Cruse. Those invited will enjoy a glamorous evening full of entertainment, food, drink, as well as a look into the work of Just Druid.
This event will be a celebration for Just Druid. It won’t only be an appreciation to those that have helped Just Druid grow over these past months, but an opportunity to reflect on how difficult life is for disabled people living in disaster affected areas of the globe.
What is next for Just Druid?
Firstly, we are ready to submit Lies We Own into national film festivals and secondly, start producing our second film – 100 years since Passchendaele. A collaborative project with the film students at University of South Wales. Our good cause will be the Not Forgotten Association. A charity set up after the end of WW1.
