Barrow based youth organisations commissioned Signal to help train participants how to create films for their own anti-bullying projects. Signal worked with Dropzone and Children’s Serviced to educate participants in learning filmmaking skills in order to create their own campaigns for the big-screen and online. The films were screened at the Forum 28th June to a large audience of schools and youth organisations. The films include animation and live action drama.
Dropzone worked on an anti-bullying campaign through funding from The Police Crime Commissioner which saw their project ‘Stop Being Mean on the Screen’ come to life in a short stop-frame animation, participants worked with Signal and Russell Peet, a local animator. This film is being shown around schools in Barrow-in-Furness to spread and target their campaign. To watch this click here
