Kennedy St CiO offers courses specialising in film making skills. We focus on filming, sound, lighting, editing and producing. Once complete, your work will be televised on Brighton’s community channel, Latest TV, as well as live streamed on their website.
In spring 2016, Kennedy St launched its film academy. Our first film, Recovery St, was made by 10 students with one thing in common, they were all in recovery from addiction.
The film course, funded by Big Lottery’s “Awards for all”, successfully brought together a group of people who shared a real passion for furthering themselves, igniting talents they hadn’t realised before, and creating firm friendships. At the heart of Recovery St is the inspiring message of transformation.
Due to its success, Recovery St will premiere on Brighton’s Latest TV on November 6th at 9pm, with repeats throughout their schedule every week during November and December.
So impressed with the work we are doing in the community, Latest TV has also offered Kennedy St CiO a weekly slot, providing us with the opportunity to create short, inspirational, powerful films.
“Transformations”, our series of five minute shorts will be made by professional film makers but at the same time we will be offering volunteering opportunities to those in the community with a real desire to engage in their own personal transformation.
If you have a story of transformation that you would like to feature, or you wish to participate in the making of one of our shorts, please contact Clare here at Kennedy St CiO.
“Recovery St” The Film
‘Recovery St’ is a short documentary, following the lives of six individuals in active recovery. They discuss the extremes of existing like prisoners in their addiction, to the freedom sobriety gives them today. Giving a brief glimpse into someone’s personal daily approach to engaging with recovery, Recovery St’s key objective is to be a source of inspiration to others facing addiction.
