How do you give abandoned buildings a little revival?

How do you give abandoned buildings a little revival?

Patrick Rooney, 22

My short documentary, 'A Little Revival', explores the spirit of a local community and how one small change within that community can bring it great success. It follows a group of local tradesmen as they fully renovate a disused church in the small town of Blairgowrie, as well as focus on the spirit and character of the driving force behind the whole project. The message is significant in the way that it shows how something abandoned or broken within a community can be given a new lease of life and be used to bring that community together again. I hope that this film can inspire others to create something that is new and fresh from something that is possibly seen as old or forgotten.
