Home Office – Act Against Crime
Sheep Skin is a film made by young people with filmmaker Mustafa Boğa and Tuğba Tirpan within the Act Against Crime project.
Act Against Crime is a Balik Arts project funded by Home Office CAGGK Fund and aims to engage young people aged 12-15 in filmmaking. Throughout the project, held in the first quarter of 2012, young people worked with professionals from the film industry and were instructed on various stages of filmmaking, from script writing through casting to shooting and editing. They also had the opportunity to gain experience of a range of technologies and exposure to role models in this vibrant industry. Exploring the current reality of their lives, the participants, largely from Turkish and Kurdish backgrounds, were able to express themselves through the exciting medium of film, which resulted in the production of a short film.
