This mash-up of a project is just the kind of magic collaboration we seek out at TC. We were approached by Matt Addicott and Katy Wilson at Starcatchers who had been working with children in nurseries in the East end of Glasgow. They were looking to make a film about their findings (mainly concerning Hetty the Hoover).
Toad’s Caravan joined forces with these excellent folk and children, and got to work understanding their plans, and plotting, storyboarding and envisioning how their film might look in the end.
We built our own green screen studio at Platform in Easterhouse and shot our film over the course of a week with hundreds of children, and lots of excellent collaborators.
This project was funded by Creative Scotland, Starcatchers and the GFT. Absolute dream – thanks to all involved.
