  • Need


    The problem that the project is trying to solve is that it is crucial when supporting young people is that their journey continues with their work in the arts. It is essential that we do not leave them after one project has finished , we must ensure we follow up and continue to keep them all inspired . We aim to continue the journey with the young people who are living in the disadvantaged area of Gospel Oak/Queens Crescent to continue our support and keep them safe from gangs and knive crime.


    Using the idea of creating a short film documentary, we will use all of the skills in the arts that we have been teaching our young people on our summer holiday projects. This will therefore encourage all of the young people to come back and keep working with us meaning keeping them all safe and OFF the streets. This short film documentary will show the young peoples concerns and how to make a positivie improvement in their living environment in the Estates of Queens Cresent/Gospel Oak.

  • Impact


    To encourage our students to keep focus, to gain respect for themselves, giving the commitment in the final edit will give them confidence and huge achievement. By continuing to work with the young people of our future generation, this project will ensure that the film doc is an honest interpretation from the young people who live in this disadvantaged areas. The young people are creating this with a high profile team working in television which will giving the young people incredible insight.


    The risks that could influence the success of this project is not having a space to work together in throughout the month of filming. We have dealt with this risk by having back up studios that have already accepted we can work in their space if we do not have our own space within month of the project taking place. No other risks are a factor.


    We will report to donors by email and updating our social media by uploading images each day of our work on set, behind the scenes and keep our pages updated on our website. We will upload images and snippets on social media every day to ensure our project is professionally executed.
