Determined to be selected for It’s My Shout 2018, I decided to submit multiple entries, a tactic that had proven successful for Cardiff Mini Film Festival 2017. The brief requested a ten-minute script that would have multiple roles for young actors and a Welsh connection, and I knew that It’s My Shout favoured scripts with a social conscience. Bearing all this in mind, I wrote and submitted six scripts (synopses for others viewable in Unproduced Scripts and scripts available upon request). The tactic again proved successful, and That’s What I ‘Eard was selected to be produced by It’s My Shout and broadcast on the BBC. That’s What I ‘Eard is a comedy-drama that tackles a serious subject matter; please read the script and see how I’ve incorporated It’s My Shout’s criteria; the finished film is available upon request.
Ivor is not the bravest kid, but when he kicks the gang’s ball over the wall of local villain Mr Jones, he has no choice but to form a team to venture into the villain’s lair and retrieve it. A hard enough task on its own, but things are made more difficult as tales of Mr Jones’s atrocities unfold and the team gradually falls apart, leaving Ivor to face Mr Jones alone and prove his bravery.
