January 2015 – Mar 15 ‘Don’t Judge’ and ‘Wrong Take’
For our recent Cooke’s Crew project we worked with 30 children! We only had 15 places but we couldn’t say no to the additional 15 that applied. We changed our session plans to fit with the amount of youngsters who really wanted to be in the club. Working with Signal they mastered a variety of really technical skills including greenscreen, editing, animation, interview techniques and much much more, all whilst completing their Bronze Arts Award. In the middle of the project participants chose their favourite workshop and then continued with an intense few sessions in the area they wished to keep with. The final film created titled ‘ Wrong Take’ was shot in one extra Saturday session, the other short film ‘Don’t Judge’ was edited together as an accumulation of all the bits of work from the sessions based on the theme of perception.

This workshop was delivered by the Signal team along with Russell Peet a local animator whose work has featured on BBC Newsnight. The children worked on producing a live-action puppet drama.
