Thoughts from category: movies

the musical highlight of our summer

We might have mentioned a few weeks ago that our very own innocent band were going to perform at the Empire. No, not the titular music store from Empire Records, but London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire, which is just as impressive (if not more so, as it's not fictional). For those of you who were unable to make it down, we thought you might enjoy this little video of them kicking it out.

Drum roll... Fireworks.... Red carpets....


After 3 months of mini movie madness, hundreds of entries, hours of deliberating by our special judging panel, and some furious voting by the general public we finally have a winner.

Congratulations to Antoine Lyons, Liam Nugent , Michael Spencer and Robin Persaud for creating a mini masterpiece – and for winning £5000, their work aired on TV and 2 tickets to the BFI London film festival.

a little film about little films


On a very rainy Saturday four weeks ago, we held a little workshop here at Fruit Towers to launch our mini movies competition. Ben Wheatley- film director, very funny chap, and the maker of our superhero ad- spent the day with us, talking about his own experience, sharing top tips, and helping our film makers' make their own little mini movies on the day.

This is our little video about the day- thanks to Mark and Dan for all the time they put into making this for us:
