Following on from our In Situ Cinema project on Chester and Carlisle Road in July 2016, we invited the residents of the two streets to join us and artist Maria Anastassiou as we returned to Queen’s Park, Bedford with two new and exciting filmmaking workshops.

With the help of artist Maria, residents of Chester and Carlisle Road explored the use of cut-out collage stop-frame 2D animation techniques using both found and drawn images combined simple sound effects to create colourful worlds inspired by the place that they live.

Over two weekends in November 2016, two films were made by nine enthusiastic children and young people. One film explores the wall separating Carlisle Road from the Allen Park, and the other on building a bug hotel on the unused green space on the corner of Chester and Carlisle Road.
