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 – Premiere Screening

Two films made by the Worksop Out on Wednesday (WOW) lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans support service at The Centre Place and E.D.E.N Film Productions as part of the Heritage Lottery Funded history project ‘Something About Us’ were screened at the Savoy Cinema, Worksop on the 3rd of February 2016. Over 60 people attended the screening to watch the end result of the research and recordings which compare how life was to be LGBT to the present-day, with a focus on the local area. David Edgley (Nottinghamshire Rainbow Heritage) provided a presentation focusing on general LGBT history as an introduction to the films.

‘Something About Us’ is a project run by E.D.E.N Film Productions, which began in June 2015, that has involved the young people attending the W.O.W service researching and recording what it was like historically to be LGBT. The project provided training in archive research, oral history and filmmaking techniques. 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’. 

Managing Director of E.D.E.N Film Productions, Claire Watkinson said, “The young people of W.O.W have worked extremely hard throughout the project and it has been fantastic to see their confidence develop alongside acquiring creative and historical skills. The two films were really well received at the screening with brilliant feedback and we are looking forward to sharing the films with more audiences.”

Helen Azar Manager of The Centre Place and W.O.W service added- “We are extremely proud of what the young people have achieved throughout the project. We received excellent feedback from those that attended the screening on both the content of the films and the positive work being done with the young LGBT community by The Centre Place. The screening has been a great start to LGBT history month for the area and for us as an organisation it marks the celebration of 7 successful years in delivering specialist LGBT support through the W.O.W service and 20 years of supporting vulnerable young people throughout Bassetlaw.”
