Lest We Forget - Fenwick Parish Church

GlobalSound were commissioned by Fenwick Parish Church on a six month film project exploring World War One and its impact with the local community. Funded by Heritage Lottery, the aim was to create a short series of documentary films with local young people which would help inform and provide a commemoration opportunity for the wider community.

Weekly Film production workshops took place for 5 months and GlobalSound supported the young film-makers to engage in the full production process from initial idea to scripting, filming, interviewing, green-screen filming and acting. The films document the lives of two very special Fenwick citizens who served within the military during World War One.

The finished productions were screened to a packed local and international audience of around 100 at Fenwick Parish Church.
