"Watch What I Do" the new drama short film from the @ukFullyFocused team at MYM. Starring Isidora Fairhurst, Rita Bernard-Shaw (Shiro's Story), Mia McKenna Bruce (The Dumping Ground, Tracey Beaker Returns) and Dani Dyer (Love Island 2018 Winner). An all-female lead cast takes you on a journey through friendship, jealousy and frenemies. All with the backdrop of basketball and betrayal. 

Growing up it’s easy to get your confidence knocked when playing sport, sometimes it can stop us following our dreams. WATCH WHAT I DO follows Layla as she is faced with these very dilemmas. What will she do?


drawn out

Drawn Out is a very important film to us all, it’s more than just a film, it’s hope, a way out and a message to those caught up or stuck in negative situations they don’t want to be in. It’s a look at the reality rather than the sensationalisation of street life, ga ng life, violence and how easy it is to get drawn out. This means the film is harsh at times but we all felt it needed to be to reach those who are in harsh situations and to deal with the rawness of these issues.

A partnership between Fully Focused, Arsenal in the Community and Ambitious Academy, we held over 25 workshops on a north London estate for 8 months, working with people on the estate affected by the issues the film deals with who had no experience of film-making, acting or script writing, to come up with the concept, work on the script, act in the film and work behind the scenes on set. 50% of the cast including one of the leads had never acted before, never been on screen and never been involved in anything like this before. There has been so much achievement from so many people involved already, the project has been a great success. With over 15 young participants from Elthorne and another 15 of the young team from Fully Focused plus some of the best cast and crew in the industry, we are so proud of what we have all achieved together and we are more than gassed about what this film can now go on to achieve.

They say life starts at 18. Jerome and Eddie are all set to give Ali the 18th birthday to remember... but for all the wrong reasons... 18 is a powerful story of friendship, love and regret.

In partnership with Network Rail and 23Red we have created ‘18’ a dramatic film with a storyline developed through school workshops, scripted by Shazia Rashid, directed by Teddy Nygh and with a cast of acclaimed actors including: BAFTA-nominee Aimee Kelly (from BBC drama Wolfblood), Harry Kirton (from Peaky Blinders), Shaquille Ali-Yebuah (from Netflix’s iBOY) and Steve Oram (from films Sightseers, The World's End and TV series The End of the F***ing World)
