Richmond Filmmaker In A Bid To Win International Competition
Thursday - February 2, 2017
Former Richmond School and Sixth Form College student Jon Addison is currently in with a chance of winning an international video competition for undebate.us, with a grand prize of $2000
Running from Jan 31, 07:00pm to Feb 07, 07:00pm GMT; the contests results are entirely based on audience votes.
Jon's video, which can be seen and voted for by going to the link below, demonstrates the dangers and effects of sensationalist news and propaganda on the general public. This theme seems particularly pertinent with current affairs in the U.S, that appear to be sweeping over the Atlantic to the UK.
Jon, 22, said "I like what this competition stands for. It's what I stand for. Unity and understanding, that's what we really need right now." He added, "I'd love to win! That kind of money would change my life. It all comes down to the people at home though, to everyone watching."
If Jon wins, his work will be displayed on a large stage in New York, where he would work with the undebate.us team. Additionally, his film would be displayed on their website, social media and through other promotions.
