Blade Education 

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

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.
