Meet the Creatures

We believe in Equality and Diversity to Educate and Nurture – so much so that we’ve even made these words, which make up our name, into little characters.

EDEN Film Productions - boom - equality

Equality – Boom poles are used for audio recording and it is important that audio levels are balanced and at the correct level. That is why our boom pole gets to symbolise how we tackle discrimination in society; by striving for balance and equality at all times.

EDEN Film Productions -lens - diversity

Diversity – Camera lenses come in all shapes and sizes and they have a variety of purposes. Our camera lens promotes and believes in the strength of diversity everywhere and she ensures that it forever remains one of our core aims.

EDEN Film Productions - clapper - educate

Educate – Clapperboards are used on film sets to educate directors, actors and editors about scenes, locations and shots. Our clapperboard helps us on our journey to educate others, be they students taking our classes or an audience watching our films; education is key to our success.

EDEN Film Productions - reel - nurture

Nurture – Film editing takes a lot of time, concentration and patience. Our editing reel ensures that we nurture our students, volunteers, employees and films so that we can continue to share powerful stories, raising vital awareness about Equality and Diversity around the world.

Something About Us was a project funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and based in Worksop. Working with young people from the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender group W.O.W in Worksop, the project aimed to research and record what it was like historically to be LBGT in the past compared to the present-day, with a focus on the local area.

The project provided training in archive research skills, oral history techniques and filmmaking skills, providing an opportunity for these LGBT young people to have a voice and to share the history they have found with their wider community to aid a more beneficial understanding of the LGBT community locally. The young people produced a documentary film ‘Something About Us’ using their oral history interviews and findings from research from Nottinghamshire and Sheffield Archives. Throughout the project the young people have been recording their own on-going reflections of the process on and have produced a separate reflective film ‘W.O.Wing me, W.O.Wing you’. 

This project has given the LGBT W.O.W members a voice in their own town and community while helping them as individuals on their own personal journeys as they learn about the experiences of other LGBT people in the past.

The films screened at a variety of locations including, Savoy Cinema (Worksop), Nottinghamshire Archives, Nottinghamshire Rainbow Heritage’s awards evening, SAYiT, Sheffield Hallam University and University of Sheffield. We also took the films into The Newark Academy and delivered a series of workshops based on the forms of discrimination.

We worked with our partners Nottinghamshire Rainbow Heritage, an organisation that celebrates Nottinghamshire’s LGBT lives, hidden history and culture. NRH organise events: exhibitions; displays; workshops and training, gather artifacts memorabilia and audio and video recordings of LGBT people’s experiences and opinions.
