Free Thinking Festival 2010: Free Ranters
Six “ranters” took to the stage at the Free Thinking Festival for their own special 2 minute spot highlighting their particular thought.
All were very good speakers, delivering well-honed scripts in a powerful, witty and convincing way. No small feat considering four of the speakers were in their early teens.
The one message which rang true for me – not least because her style of delivery provided a much needed shot in the arm for me after a long night and even less sleep the night before – was Abby.
She bemoaned the rise of ‘sequel’ – a money grabbing opportunity in her eyes and something which is destroying the film industry in turn. She prefers ‘the original’ or the ‘the classic’. And on that basis I like her too.
