Josh Bywater Level 3 Film & Photography
During his time at College, Josh wrote, directed, edited and produced his own film, The Messenger.
“The Messenger is a script I wrote a few years ago now; I would say 2-3 years ago and put to the side for future use. With my course being very film based, I decided to bring a load of mates from both Calderdale College and Huddersfield New College to put this piece together!” says Josh.
This exciting drama film tells the story of a man, John Dowson, who is a messenger that delivers information from one place to another. After 10 years of working for this secretive company, on his last day he decides to open the letter he is delivering – this move might be his “biggest” mistake.
Josh gained the help of his course mates with the acting and production of his film. Josh’s film was premiered at a local independent cinema.
Josh’s friend and course mate Mark Davison commented on his experience: “Filming has been an absolute pleasure whilst working with Josh; we’ve had countless hours of fun whilst making the film. We’ve been filming since the beginning of February and I have to say, the effort Josh has put into this is spectacular!”
