A-level Students Gain Acting Roles in Innovative Production

Two of Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor’s former students were chosen as lead actors for the recent innovative film production GALWAD.

Eve Harris from Pwllheli and Elan Davis from Dolgellau - who have just finished their A-level studies at the college – both played central roles within the project.

The production unfolded in real time from Monday 26 September to Sunday 2 October. It was streamed live on digital channels during the week, culminating in a four-hour broadcast on Sky Arts on Sunday 2 October live from Blaenau Ffestiniog. This was followed by a 60-minute TV drama set in 2052.

Inspired by the Well-being of Future Generations Act (2015) - Wales’s policy which puts the rights of future generations at the heart of the decision-making process - GALWAD is a story that brings possible futures to life. It pushes the boundaries on how stories have been told, with characters and stories connecting across TV drama, live performances, social media and news.

Natalie Coles-Williams, Drama lecturer at Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor said: “Seeing our former students get this kind of opportunity was really great, and it is a testament to the kind of education available here at the college. The GALWAD project was a great opportunity for us to be able to show the world all the incredible talent that is here in the north west.

“This project is part of the wider UNBOXED festival, which is a celebration of creativity and consists of free events taking place throughout 2022, aiming to unlock talent in our communities. We are very proud of Eve and Elan's successes."
