Brigg Film Makers
An example of one of our film making Outreach projects took place with staff and service users with learning difficulties and disabilities at a Resource Centre in North Lincolnshire. The group learnt how to use a camera, record sound, storyboard, direct and act in their first film ‘Lipstick, Cards and Water Pistols’ – a gangster film.
The project was a huge success, and culminated in a premiere screening at The Base, in Scunthorpe. The film also won 2nd prize at the Leeds Young Filmmakers Festival in 2009.
A training element was included within the project and funding secured to purchase the necessary equipment to sustain the group in the future and they have already gone on to make other films!

As this was our first film project I thought would be going at a slower pace and that the students would have trouble keeping up, but I was wrong and the group was as keen as mustard. The project was a great success and the final product was exceptional – it was entertaining and amusing, and far exceeded my expectations. Resource Centre Worker
