Pioneer School

Since January 2011, I have been working with Pioneer School in Basildon as part of the Royal Opera House Creative Partnerships project.

Pioneer is a special needs school and my task as a Creative Practitioner has been to guide a group of student film makers and make a documentary about life at the school.

Filming is now complete and editing is well underway. The film is set to portray an interesting, touching and honest perspective of all the hard work that goes into ensuring that the children and young adults of Pioneer have the best start in life the school can offer them.

The full documentary will include a substantial amount of footage actually shot by the students who have taken part. It is set to be released later this year and will be available for public viewing.
