We won an Award at the DAFTAs for the Best Our School / Our Place Nominations. We came first place Key Stage 3 for the Award which we are really happy about.The short film war made on the taster day in the Easter holidays, it was fun to make - people had to film, direct, edit and act! The idea was a short promotional film about the Drop Inn. This was our first attempt - we have improved through the film project running at the moment on Tuesday nights. We are looking forward to next years, where we will enter some more films. Can we just say a big thank you to Film City for working with us on this film resulting in winning another Award, Thank you Film City!

The class room scene was all focused on the teacher this take. There was a few of the main characters missing unfortunately. The class room scene will be re-shot next week along side the club scene. This week was saved by some brilliant acting from Adie, who was playing both the teacher in the class room and the teacher dreaming of his younger self in a rock band.

Experimental sound track created by our new loop pedal, Jasper and Phil. Jasper started with a beat box which built into a crazy loop of noise. Then Phil came along and plugged the amp in and started jamming to the loops. From this everyone was taking it in turns to build sound tracks on the loop pedal then respond by jamming to the beats. The rest of the young people were chilling out side in the sun listening to the madness, which actually sounded quite good!
A couple of The Drop Inn young people and staff teamed up with the Glenholme young people and staff to re-decorate some of Glenholmes main rooms. Glenholme is a residential home for young people, which after the work looks a really smart hostel. The Lounge, hall way and education room were all refurbished with some original idea's coming from the Young People, Tom and Graffiti Pete! Thank You to Tim and Maddy for taking part on behalf of The Drop Inn, you worked really hard and gave a really positive impact. D-i x

The Girl crying in her bed room scene was shot this session. The film angles used were so inventive and made the film look different again. It was shot in the girls toilets which has bright pink walls, which made this scene stand out with a different style!
