Under The Bridge, a homeless charity based in Byker, Newcastle, runs a wood workshop. At the workshop, volunteers and participants refurbish old and unwanted furniture and sell them in two shops, one in Byker, the other in Heaton. Those at the workshop have had, at times, difficult lives, but this is not the focus of the short film. Instead it’s to look at what can happen when people are given a chance, somewhere to go and something to contribute.

St Oswalds Ball
St Oswald’s Hospice, based in Gosforth, asked me to come along to their annual ball to create a short film which shows off how special a night they host, as well as how important the charity is to people.
