Voices That Shake

In August 2013, we teamed up with our friends Hi8us to work on The Voices That Shake training programme. Shake is a project that brings together young people, artists and campaigners to develop creative responses to social injustice.  Participants engage in dynamic workshops (poetry writing and performance, filmmaking and music) and follow up mentoring to persue creative campaigning and events production.

 

Click on the video to watch the poetic documentary our students created, this was premiered at the Power>>Propaganda>>Perceptions event; An explosive showcase which featured the students freshly produced film, music and poetic work.

War on Want Campaign Videos

We worked with War On Want to create a campaign video to highlight the compensation that is still needed for the Rana Plaza building collapse victims, and another to encourage more brands to sign up to The Building and Fire Safety Agreement.

Rana Plaza Fundraisers

During 2013 we organised several fundraising events in aid of the victims of the Rana Plaza collapse, at Regent's College and The Rich Mix Cinema where the discussion was chaired by the wife of the Bangladeshi High Commissioner. At both events we screened our film 'The Machinists, held Q&A sessions,  and featured music from our long time friend John Pandit of The Asian Dub Foundation and State of Bengal. All funds raised went directly to the families in need.

Not Ok Anywhere screened at Glastonbury

Our campaign video for War on Want made it to Glastonbury 2013! It was screened on a loop prior to Muse playing and The Rolling Stones. The Rolling Stones set attracted over 170,000 people, so this video was seen by many, we are very pleased with this. The video was shot in East London and was featured in The Daily Telegraph. See the full website here, click on the video to watch.

Quest; A Tall Tale

We have completed shooting a short 'making of' documentary for director Thomas. G. Murphy. Tom is making a feature length animated film called 'Quest; A Tall Tale'. We filmed Tom and the voice artist Sylvester McCoy as they recorded the voices for various characters. Sylvester McCoy is well known for being in the Doctor Who series and can also be seen in Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit' and its upcoming sequels. Tom and Sylvester were great to work with and we filmed some great interviews with them about the process of making 'Quest; A Tall Tale'.

'The Machinists' was selected to close the London Labour Film Festival on 23rd June 2013. We also took part in a Q&A after the screening to discuss the JustGiving fundraiser.

DWTV Agenda Appearance

Bangla TV Interview

We were featured on Bangla TV for a 90 minute show with Leesa Gazi. Leeza has her own show which is aired at 7.30pm every Sunday. It was our first experience of being on a live show. We were interviewed about our documentaries in Bangladesh and in particular spoke our 'The Machinists'. There was also a phone-in and members of the public asked us questions about our work. We were very happy with the interview and were especially pleased to be able to plug the JustGiving fundraiser.
