A PROJECT offering anybody the chance to make their own video about life in the capital is to run a free workshop.

London Recut uses archive footage including that of Thamesmead and of the Princess Theatre, Crayford, which was demolished in 1957, to allow online users to make edit and present their own film comparing historic London with that of today.

An introductory workshop will take place next Saturday at the Local Studies and Archive Centre, Townley Road, Bexleyheath, from 1-4pm.

Twenty participants from the borough will be given the chance to explore the material on offer and learn how to use the online system to create a simple documentary.

Those unable to take part in the workshop can edit the archive footage, add their own material from their webcam and microphone using the user friendly website.

As part of the project a jury of established filmmakers will select four homemade films to be launched at the Rushes Soho Shorts Film Festival in July.

Booking for the free workshop is essential. Please contact Andy Robson at londonrecut@mosaicfilms.com or 020 7923 2994.
