We have worked with a number of clients, both large and small.
Here is what a few of them have to say about our work:
WE'RE SO EXCITED BECAUSE IT MAKES US LOOK BETTER THAN WE ACTUALLY ARE.
SOME OF US HAVE WATCHED IT MULTIPLE TIMES BECAUSE WE CAN'T STOP ADMIRING OURSELVES AND MARVELING AT YOUR WORK!

WHAT CLIENTS SAY ABOUT OUR VIDEO SERVICES...
The Hip Hop
The Interactive Dance Workout
#EveryBodyCanDance is a multi-award winning participatory video project produced in collaboration with the YMCA.
YMCA provides accommodation and support to vulnerable people, as well as offering activities for families and youth.
They got in touch and asked us to create a resource that enables their Disabled service users to be more active outside of their centres.
Here at Filmanthropy, we love to dance and we soon learned that YMCA's service users do too. So, we gathered together a team of experts in accessible music production and dance choreography, organised some auditions to find some talented dancers and headed to the nearest dance studio.
There #EveryBodyCanDance was born - a 30-minute long, user-led, fun, informative and easy to follow video that everyone can use to get moving. The Disabled dance crew, who varied vastly across demographic and impairment, worked together with our experts to produce the music track and choreography and also featured in the final video. They are now heavily involved in the promotion of the product to their peers.
By creating an online resource and incorporating different techniques such as voiceover, British Sign Language and Makaton, we have made it a priority to make sure that the video is truly accessible to everybody.
The Hip Hop Gardeners
Produced in collaboration with May Project Gardens and Help Refugees
May Project Gardens is a Community Interest Company that reconnects inner-city communities with nature for personal, social and economic transformation.
Recently they've been working with young refugees and unaccompanied minors on their #HipHopGarden project -combining nature with the youth movement of Hip Hop. They engaged us to teach the young people multimedia skills and aid them to create their own short film.
The end result is a film that not only documents the young peoples journeys with the organisation, but is a resource that May Project Gardens can use to promote the programme more generally.
The Teen Detectives
Produced in collaboration with National Trust
The National Trust is one of the UK's most well-known charities. However, despite many people having heard of the organisation or interacted with one of their spaces, they have found that there are a lot of misconceptions about who makes up the organistion and what work they do, especially amongst young people.
They asked us to help dispel some of these myths and inspire a more diverse range of (young) people to get involved with the organisation. To do this, we recruited two young volunteers, armed them with some cameras and took them on the road to interview their peers and staff members around the country.
The result is a short, peer-led film that investigates and highlights the variety of job and person that works for the National Trust.
The Inspirational Interns
Produced in collaboration with Inclusion London
Inclusion London supports over 70 Deaf and Disabled Organisations working across every London borough.
They got in touch with us to make a video to showcase their innovative Making it Work project - a programme to support young Disabled people into employment.
After a chat with the team, we decided to make 3 short films targetting each of the three main groups the programme serves: Students, Colleges and Employers.
'This film was made with the help of young Disabled people'
In order to really reflect the ethos of the project, we were keen to put the young Disabled people that the programme serves both in front of and behind the camera. So we formed a shadow crew, who played a key role in producing and shooting the films.
