Boy and Bicycle (1965) was Ridley Scott's very first film: A black-and-white short, shot on 16mm without sound. Scott shot the footage in 1961 while studying at the Royal College of Art. The shoot was funded with £65 (for film and processing) and a Bolex 16mm camera (free rental) by the RCA. In 2017, Scott remembered: "My brother, Tony Scott, was the actor and chief equipment carrier (smiles). I remember it cost £65, and I took six weeks to bugger about on Redcar and Hartlepool beach to make this movie." The short film (including soundtrack, music and titles) would only be fully completed and copyrighted in 1965 with a £250 grant from the British Film Institute.
