Bristol In A Day – A Short Film


Jess made a short film with 11 young people in Bristol to show what a typical day looks like for them.

On 27th February, 2015, we asked 11 young Bristolians to document their day. Through smartphones, go-pros, webcams, whatever they could get their hands on, these guys, aged 13-23, spanning Redland, Clifton, Horfield, Frenchay, Kingswood, Easton, Bishopsworth, Totterdown and beyond, showed us what an average day looks like for the young people of Bristol.

Let us know what you think of the film: #bristolinaday

Thanks to Holly Ogborne, Jacob Dyer, Emily Gillingham, Daniel Waller, Ruby Byrne, Evan Davis, Lucy Wallis, Emma Morsi, Liz Evans, Sham Ahmed for taking part.
