Silver Screen

Working with Carousel was a great experience for our young people. The project was tremendous fun and required the pupils to try out a range of new creative experiences that they might not ever have tried. For example, none of them had heard of Foley SFX before and really enjoyed learning about it.

The people from Carousel were really engaging and worked with us in an encouraging and enabling way, showing sensitivity towards the pupils’ wide range of needs. We would welcome them back in a flash.

In a new collaboration between Carousel and Screen Archive South East, the pioneering early films of Brighton and Hove were re-imagined by young people from local SEN schools – Downs Park School (Portslade), Downsview Lifeskills Link College (Patcham) and Headstart School (Ninfield).

Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the project gave 30 students with learning disabilities, autism and additional needs an insight into film-making and visual story-telling, using a green screen, making music and experiencing making sound effects, working alongside two of Carousel’s experienced film-makers – Tina Dickinson and Jason Eade.
