Visuals and performance created by Get Digital participants aged 16-19 through Signal Film and Media in Barrow-in-Furness. Poem based on a poem by MWhatley (‘Sofa-Surfing’) in partnership of Nightstop Cumbria and DePaul UK. Film launched 23 May 2019.
In January, Get Digital students had the unique opportunity to create a short film for Cumbria Hate Crime Awareness Week (5-11th Feb 2019). Over three days they learned about script writing, animation, special effects, camera and lighting. The film was created with a theme of Autism Awareness & was shared widely online to raise awareness of Hate Crime.
This project took place from 16-19th January and was funded by Cumbria Police Crime Commissioner, Peter McCall for Cumbria Police.
