Plans and tests

I’m really excited to be planning the animated part of a third film with young people in Care in Cambridgeshire.  The first two My Name is Joe and Finding my Way have been received more enthusiasically than we could have imagined, with a cash prize and best doc at the BFI Future film festival for Finding my Way.  The young people who made the film often join the screenings to take questions that crop up from the material and there’s a real sense that their voices are welcomed in the dialogue around kids in care.  The third film will be about residential care, and my job at the moment is thinking of ways to engage the young people and help them present their opinions using moving image, whilst keeping their identity private, that’s why the family are drawing on paper bags like Saul Steinberg this week.
