CURRENT PROJECTS

 


OVERVIEW OF OUR RECENT PROJECTS

We just completed the latest film skills and employment training course - FILM2LEARN2£ARN - for young Lambeth residents (funded by The Walcot Foundation) begun in March in August 2018. Screening will be this autumn.

These students filmed the Lambeth Country Show on July 21st and 22nd which will be up on Lambeth’s website shortly and on our social media platforms

They also filmed for Vauxhall City Farm a New Shoots youth social action project making a primary school garden in Vauxhall.

They were chosen for interview filming with Black Thrive for Brixton Reel Festival on theme of mental health awareness in the black community.

They were invited to film Theatre Peckham’s employment and training event.

They were invited to work as runners for the high-end music video GHETTS whose production company myAccomplice was based in our workshop in August

 

Our second pottery project for local Lambeth residents, 'POTTER ABOUT' was a very popular and productive drop-in programme documented in film by our trainees. There were with many lovely pieces of clay work varying from tiles to lampstands. There will be a party and exhibition of work at Chandlers Hall, 15 Lambeth Walk this autumn. Look out for dates on our social media!

 

The free creative community project “ANY TIME YOU’RE LAMBETH WAY” was completed in July. It was very well attended and the stunning mosaics themed on local history are nearing completion for installation in the Lambeth Walk.

 

We are also running bespoke ceramic evening classes every Wednesday, where you can learn to throw on the wheel, hosted by Anna Kinga. These are fee paying sessions advertised on our social media platforms

 

CHILDREN’S FILM  PROJECTS

  2018 The Octavia Foundation invited us to facilitate a 3 day film work project at Easter - Think. Make. Create.

Lambeth ‘Getting Involved Grants’ funded us to deliver 4 days of children’s film workshops culminating in ’Operation X’ still in edit


2017 The Museum of Imagination, also located in The Workshop at the Old Lambeth Fire Station, invited Creative Sparkworks film team of trainee camera operators, make-up artist and tutors, to facilitate their Lab:Live event themed on ‘Reality’ and sponsored by Rolls Royce. A dramatic tableau was put in place as a background to 400 children and parents filming it on industry equipment to explore the reality of the actual situation and that of the press ‘angle’.

More experimental children’s film projects followed – Godzillaz on the Green Screen, Robot Rock, Attack of the Killabots, Danrobot Wars, attended by a wide range of children ages four to fourteen. Complete films were produced and screened in the 3-day Imagination Summer Camp!
A series of films were made by Lambeth Young Carers this spring and summer, two of which have been chosen for screenings in primary schools to raise awareness of what it means to be a young carer – People Like Me, and Emotions, made by young people aged 13 to 16. Younger children wrote and filmed in one day The Chicken Pizza Incident, and The Thrilling Affair of the Necklance, both of which were screened to a full house of families and friends at the BFI Southbank, with the support of the BFI Family Education Department.

Lambeth ‘Getting Involved Grants’ funded us to deliver 6 days of children’s film making workshops  producing ‘Message Man’.

The “Four Seasons” ceramic and mosaic panels for the Vauxhall Gardens estate have become talking points in what was previously an unused and neglected urban space. The mosaics took over a year to create with the help of local residents and are now installed in the transformed community garden space Hayverley Point Garden.
