Until January 2017 I had been working with a number of primary schools in Bradford to produce films for the cinema. I am in my element producing film and l love the process of working on a script and forming it into a screenplay.
These films were made in primary schools working with up to 60 children as a production company. They learned how to write, design, organise, act and use the equipment. The final films are formatted for the cinema and shown as a red carpet event. These projects have been wonderful to work on.
Film premier of The Capsule
The Capsule was a special effects movie made in six weeks! The whole of Year Five at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School was involved – in fact most of the school was involved in some way.

The BBC features attendance campaign in 2011
In 2011 we were commissioned to work with a number of schools to create a film encouraging children to be better attenders.
The solution was to get the children to research the reasons for poor attendance and to engage with teachers, parents and other children. The film was shown at the local picture house and distributed on DVD.

Keighley News celebrates the Hidden Keighley Project
In 2010 we were involved in organisating and delivering “Hidden Keighley”. This project involved pupils from 6 schools working together to explore Keighley’s past. They used a range of multimedia resources, GPS and traditional classroom resources to create an exhibition and films about the history of the town. The film was shown in the local cinema.
