We’ve been working with Hertfordshire’s Lowewood Museum’s Youth Panel over the last few months producing a short film. From early ideas, a script was created and the project took shape. The film was shot at weekends and in the evenings when the panel was available. It was a busy time for the Youth Panel what with revision, school, work, civic commitments, Snapchat, Instagram, and Christmas even popped up unexpectedly.
Absolutely will be arriving online very soon.
Production still from a really busy day at the Lowewood Museum yesterday where we were filming with Liam Mercer from the 10th Essex Regiment Great War Living History Group, Ciara Jane Fleming from The Valle Academy of Performing Arts , and Caitlin one of the many members of Lowewood Museum’s Youth Panel who were filming. Of course Lowewood Museum’s tiger Ben kept a ready eye on proceedings.Only a few more days of shooting left on the Youth Panel’s short film “Absolutely”, which is kindly supported by Royal Opera House Bridge .
Up early creating a prop for our Youth Panel Film we’re making with Lowewood Museum. Or up early playing with STAEDTLER pencils, sharpeners, and bits of paper…
Shooting some test footage today at Hoddesdon’s, Lowewood Museum for our new short film: Absolutely. I got a little distracted by a fabulous stone carving workshop that was taking place in the grounds of the museum led by stone carver Simon Keeley MA – Stone Carver & Sculptor who isn’t featured in the photo.
One of the great things about working with proactive museums is they’re always trying something new and engaging with not only with their regular loyal audience but also reaching out to build an even more inclusive audience.

As part of the conference King Street Images’ film New Connections, which profiles an over 50s dance group based in Watford, will be screened.
