Sci-Fi Success

September 21, 2012  

Never one to duck from the limelight Executive Bully Darren Scales received on behalf of Backyard Productions the 2012 North Kesteven Community Champion Award for Contribution to the Arts, for the Sc-Fi production The Drift!

The production was undertaken with volunteers from across the local community as well as undergraduates from the University of Lincoln. Produced and filmed over a period of 6 months, the top floor of the Airmens’ mess at RAF Waddington was transformed from a dining room into a film studio with spaceship sets , camera and wardrobe department. The production was also featured on local ITV news in February 2012.

Accepting the award, Darren said, “Movies and awards seem to go hand in hand, but this one is extra special as it recognises the value that community filmmaking has in broader terms. Our productions include amateurs and pros alike where we can all take away new skills such as teamwork, leadership, confidence and ambition. Thanks to the local community, RAF Waddington and all the volunteers, we were able to make a fun movie, make new friends and hopefully produce a great story for us all to enjoy!”
