Over the past decade, Blade Education has researched produced and directed over 500 films for a wide variety of clients. We have a track record of successfully
working with and inside communities in order to get vital information across, however difficult what needs to be said.
Technically we are innovators. As trainers, we know how to keep it simple. As colaborators we actually listen. We believe that great quality film making can and does change lives. We provide a service that uses expert researchers, producers, camera and sound people and directors but at an affordable cost in order to make the most of ever shrinking budgets.
Many of our projects have been produced in multiple languages in order to reach the widest possible audiences. Please get in touch if you want to know how we make effective and inclusive multi-lingual films. Our team is also highly experienced at working to tight deadlines so even if you are short of time, please do get in touch. Please call on 0207 097 3935 or email our Creative Director, Beth Hooper on firstname.lastname@example.org
The Where To Start Pilot is a Blade Education partnership project that is built around promoting better communication between parents and teachers to improve the outcomes of babies and young children. Where to Start is a multi format project that will deliver information and help to both mainstream and hard to reach communities.
The 2012 Shared Spaces Project bought the children of the Westborough School to the North Road Burial Ground to connect them with their past and with local history. This 9 month project promoted outdoor learning, help the children understand how their ancestors lived and died and taught them how to use digital cameras to record local heritage
The Build with Care project focussed on the £1.2million, year long renovation of a Victorian cemetery chapel at the North Road Burial Ground. Our brief was to follow the renovation and film the progress made over the course of the year and to produce monthly update films that would be used by all of the partner organisations.
The Phoenix Project was a year long partnership between Royal Opera House Creative Partnerships and the Westborough School in Westcliff-on-Sea - our job was to film and document the project and produce a comprehensive film of the activities and outcomes. By working with small, high quality cameras we were able to move around classrooms and other venues such as the North Road Burial Ground and the Royal Opera House and were able to capture much more natural footage.
