A group of film makers from Bon-y-maen created this video during a 4-day film workshop in September 2015.

The workshops enabled participants to design, develop and create their own film which involved creative writing, character design, animation, video and sound recording, and editing. Participants were encouraged to develop their own ideas from the outset and were guided through the process of scripting, designing, and shooting their films.

The project has been designed within the context of Arts, Culture and Heritage, and with this being a significant contributing tool to tackling poverty. LOCWS International is a member of the Swansea Creative Learning Partnership, which brings together Arts, Culture and Heritage organisations with Communities First and other organisations that contribute towards; alleviating the effects of poverty, and helping individuals benefit from exposure to the creative industries and cultural sector.
