Cinderella - In Our Words
This animated short film presents the challenges faced by care experienced young people entering adulthood and how The National House Project supports the transition.
Written, directed, animated and performed by the young people of The Local House Project East Dunbartonshire. Creative storytelling programme designed and delivered by Braw Talent.
The finished outputs represent what young people want to say because the process puts young people at the centre, it's authentic. They can see themselves in the animation whether it's a phrase they use, the trainers they wear or a facial expression.
All the way through the Braw Talent team were collaborative, open and enthusiastic to get stuck in and for our projects to be led by young people. Their passion and expertise in working with children and young people in person and online has resulted in videos we are all so proud of.
The folks at Braw Talent are extremely professional and kind. They are great to work with and provided a fantastic session for the young people.
Professional, collaborative, transparent and without doubt highly creative, the team took time to understand our project aims before producing an innovative proposal. In addition to their own individual strengths and talents, the Braw Talent team were also able to engage people from their wide network, including people from the creative industries, to help deliver the project. The opportunities, learning and experiences the project and Braw Talent provided for the children and young people were amazing and the outcome beyond our expectations.
After the initial group zoom call ideas really got rolling and we were amazed at just how quickly the project came together! A highlight was definitely seeing the campaign develop in the form of scriptwriting, storyboarding, and performing into the 3 final videos. The young people really grew in confidence as the sessions progressed.
Professional, educational and FUN! Cannot recommend Braw Talent highly enough. Kids were engaged and loved learning more about how to use their devices to create more professional content. By the end of the programme they were able to interview peers, staff and funders, film their own content and set up a film set!
We have had amazing feedback not just from young people but with workers and professionals who have reflected on the difference they have seen in young people after working with Braw Talent. Young people have said they enjoyed the experience of creating something that is "theirs" - helping with a sense of belonging and ownership of the project.
Our young people really enjoyed the digital art session, Braw Talent went above and beyond creating templates for our young people to see their creations in action. The session was well thought out and facilitated.
I think Braw Talent are fantastic on how they present their work and also how they interact with the young adults who attend. I also think that the young adults get a lot of fun out of the sessions.
On day one, participants were shy, quiet and awkward - you could have heard a needle drop in the room. By the end of the week, participants were confidently expressing their opinions, ideas, and creative vision.
