Over the past nine months students from Hampstead School have been working with the team at TWC to produce a film for the Cricklewood community and its now online and ready to share!
The students had to research the local area, film interviews with local businesses & community leaders and work both in front and behind the camera. Not only did the students need to get to grip with the equipment, they also had to conquer their own nerves; asking a person you don’t know questions can be a daunting task!
In all the students talked to around 30 local people across the duration of the project. The young people chose the best twelve interviews and edited them together in
to the final film. Raheem from the project said “I have really enjoyed myself. Its been fun working with the experts from Together We Create. Filming was scary but fun.”
Glen Steven, Inclusion Co-ordinator at the school added “As a school we are really keen to be an active part of the community. When a project like this comes along, we know our students will benefit from it, so we have to say Yes!”
Catherine Hays, Chair of Trustees for Together We Create said “We have really enjoyed working with Hampstead School on the Vision on Cricklewood program. The staff and students have committed lots of time and energy into this project and have been a great partner to work with.”
The premier screening took place at Hampstead School on 23rd April. This project was made possible thanks to a grant from Barnet Council. This project complements the work that has taken place locally funded by the London Mayors, Outer London Fund
