An Anti-knife film will go into production thanks to an online fundraising campaign.

McGibney Productions in Kimberley used website Kickstarter to raise the £5,00 they needed to make Stereotype - a film about a teenager facing a difficult choice.

Producer Luke McGibney said: “It’s incredible to see how much the local community has supported us. The hardest part was getting potential backers to look at the project, but as soon as they saw what we wanted to achieve, they offered their support in whatever way they could.”

The film will now go into production in April, to be used to available to schools, youth clubs and other educational facilities in September.
