In 2016 the Island Media Arts Cooperative (IMAC) ran the Young Island Voices project challenged youth to tell their own stories with film and three teens took up on the offer: Keelin Fremlin, Alexander Cairns, and Zaneta Ambassa.

Seventeen-year-old, Keelin Fremlin submitted two short films. The first, A Cup of Tea, follows a little girl (played by Evie Grace Mawson) living with an alcoholic mother. She dreams of a land and characters, much like Alice in Wonderland, to distract herself from her harsh reality. Keelin’s second piece, Melody, is a two-and-a-half minute montage of her friends and peers speaking, playing music, and making art, while an angelic voice recites a monologue about the importance of music and creation.

Alexander Cairns , also seventeen, explored themes of teen drug and alcohol abuse in his short-film, YOLO. The film follows a young man on a steady path to success. Unfortunately, he falls off the tracks and ends up fraternizing with the wrong crowd with very poor results. ”

Twelve-year-old, Zaneta Ambassa’s short film, Muted, follows a young musician who has been unintentionally muted by The Big Guy in the Sky as he relaxes in his “control room.” Zaneta wrote the script with her sister in three days, “We didn’t want to forget anything and we didn’t want to take any breaks just in case!”

IMAC’s Executive Director, Renee Laprise awarded each a $250 grant in support of their next project. Youth interested in filmmaking are encouraged to contact IMAC (892-3131, www.imac.coop).
