Final Edition Productions (Family Time)

Client
Families Forward

 

Overview

Families Forward worked with See Change Film to run a film training programme over 4 months. The trainees, now known as Final Edition Productions, filmed, directed and edited a 25-minute documentary called Family Time.

Aims

The aim of this project was to provide film training to some of the most at risk families living in the Borough of Kensington Chelsea - families who had been known to children's and young people's services over a number of years. 

Over 4 months the families, who call themselves Final Edition Productions, worked together to produce the 25-minute documentary, Family Time. The process helped to unlock their creative potential, break-down negative patterns of behaviour, build their confidence and provide them with the skills to shoot, direct and edit their first documentary.
