‘This project helps me see the future I want for myself.’ Friday Club participant
‘An incredible film that showcases the ability of the full group and what they can achieve. The motivation this gives these individuals is priceless.’ Parent of Friday Club member
‘The Friday Club has helped me get more confidence and now I’m speaking out more often. I have put it on my CV and that helps me find voluntary work and look for other voluntary work. I was a volunteer at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and now I work for the Red Cross.’ Friday Club participant
The Friday Club made their first film Citizens Ghost, set in and around the atmospheric Citizens Theatre. We explored the idea of who this fantastic building belonged to, our audiences and the people who work here (in Wardrobe, the paint frame, rehearsal rooms etc) or the ghosts who haunt the building. This was another great opportunity to have a lot of fun, create new characters and learn new skills:
‘Filming takes time and repetition - you had to keep calm and carry on! I learnt about having patience, working as part of a team and keeping focussed.’
Watch with the lights on!
We are very grateful for the support from Boshier Hinton to make this film.
