THE Lloyds Bank Film Challenge being run by Channel 4 has hit a problem: it cannot find anyone who is raring to take up a special challenge. It wants a rising director, under 26, capable of directing a crew of 42 people on a shoot for one of the winning proposals, a light entertainment youth programme. Bill Hilary, commissioning editor for youth programmes at Channel 4, says it shows young people are no longer being trained in key disciplines because of the expense that is involved.
