Published To

10×14 Bricks – Stories from Youth in Lock-up was produced at Cavan Secure Care Facility (SA) and its Youth Education Centre [DECS] over a 5-week intensive workshop. Participants learnt essential 21st Century digital media skills to create relevant crime prevention messages for their peers. In candid meet-the-director documentaries and in their own films young offenders share their life choices about crime and the consequences.

10×14 Bricks won the SA Screen Awards 2009 for Best Innovation in Digital Media and was nominated for Best Editing and Best Cinematography.
