Watford MP Richard Harrington introduces competition with Warner Brothers and West Herts College for budding film makers and musicians

Watford Observer: MP introduces competition for budding film makers MP introduces competition for budding film makers

Watford’s MP is calling for local musicians and film makers to enter a Parliamentary competition called Rock the House and Film the House.

This year Richard Harrington is working alongside Warner Brothers, who will help judge the film entries, and West Herts College who are helping judge the rock entries.

Founded by Intellectual Property Advisor to the Prime Minister, Mike Weatherley MP, the competitions are sponsored by industry figures and supported by celebrity patrons including Brian May and Mark Hoppus from Blink 182.

Both competitions offer the opportunity for people in Watford to win prizes ranging from festival slots, studio time, equipment, and the opportunity to have their work premiered in London’s West End.

Richard Harrington MP said: "This is a great way to get your work noticed and it should be great fun too. Watford is at the very forefront of the music and film industries in the UK so I’m sure everyone will be watching to see what we come up with.

"This year I’m really looking forward to working with Warner Brothers and West Herts College to select the winners, who will hopefully make it through to the final."

Entries are open until the end of March. For more information, go to www.rockthehouseHOC.com/apply and www.filmthehouse.com/apply.

Yes, I suppose supporting young people to make films and get into the film industry instead of standing about on street corners is a bad thing !

Couple that to the potential international money to be made by young musicians and singers which in turn bring in lots of dosh to the UK, that also can only be a bad thing?

What planet are you on ?

Well done Richard Harrington for recognising a good thing for Watford and its budding actors, musicians and film makers.

I am from Watford, google it, you will find its a town full of people wanting to make something of their lives.

What has promoting business in Watford got to do with heating and eating ?, absolutely nothing, except of course someone may be able to make something of their life instead of whinging on about something totally removed from the topic.

If you think Richard Harrington should do something else write to him at "Richard Harrington MP, House of Commons, London SW1A 1AA
