Students’ film targets youth drinking
BEING in a movie may seem glamorous but it was also an eye-opener for some local youths yesterday.
As part of a joint project between the Grafton Liquor Accord and the Eyes Wide Project, 17 youngsters have been making films on how to look after their friends when confronted by alcohol.
They are making four short TV commercial-style films as well as two documentaries talking to local people, including emergency hospital staff, paramedics and police, about binge drinking.
Three days of filming ended yesterday. There will be a launch event at the Saraton Theatre in Grafton on Friday July 26.
