Appeal for creative young people to help with film project about Diss

The search is on for enthusiastic young artists, actors, film-makers, storytellers, creative writers, performers, animators, musicians and model makers to share their ideas and take part in a multimedia arts project.

There will be a meeting to discuss a film project looking at the history of the town at Diss Corn Hall on Wednesday, May 16, at 3.45pm.

The organisers want to collect stories from people who live in the area, stories about work, local pastimes, family memories, everyday life of the people of Diss past and present.

These will be made into a script and then filmed in live action and animation with the help of animator Matt Harrison. He will help to make a model of the town which will be part of the film.

For further information or to take part, go along to the meeting or contact the box office on 01379 652241 or email
