Animating Constantine for the Yorkshire Museum

Our film for the Yorkshire Museum will be seen by 90,000 people a year as part of the Roman York: Meet The People Of The Empire exhibition. Over 2 weeks during the summer we worked with a group of young people to create this piece which explains the story of Constantine's head, which has recently returned to York from Italy. It was a great couple of weeks, we had fantastic support from the Museum staff and a team of really talented young people.

Psychosis - Steps to Recovery

A short film made by people who have experienced psychosis. This film illustrates some of the different aspects to psychosis that they and their families went through. It also seeks to show that anyone could be affected by psychosis at some point in their lives, but that there is help available. Made with

"This has been a fantastic and rewarding experience for everyone that has taken part. We devised a plan of what we wanted to do, were supported developing those ideas and given the tools and guidance to make the animation. It's given us a wonderful film which will raise awareness about psychosis and the challenges that can be experienced. Everyone who took part in this work has been given a sense of ownership of their service, valuable work experience and also had a great time! The film was used at our launch event and will continue to be used within the service and online."
