Jump Cut is a project for a small group of young people aged 18 - 30 from Dumfries & Galloway to work alongside established filmmaker, photographer and visual artist Colin Tennant, to create short documentary and artistic films inspired by the diverse cultural programme of Upland and DMC (Dumfries Music Collective).

Jump Cut ran for the first time last year and enabled four young people to work with Colin between April - August 2021.

The 2022 project will take place as an intensive short course, spanning 12 days. During this time Colin will act as a film making 'mentor' sharing his skills and knowledge with the group and supporting them throughout the process. The group will work with Colin to create two short films - one focussed on an Upland member artist or maker and another focussed on a DMC artist. Both films will be shared and used by Upland and DMC to promote both the project and the work of the organisations.

We are now open for applications to take part! The deadline to apply for a place on this FREE course is: 5pm Wednesday 15th June.
