E.D.E.N Action! is a Humber Learning Consortium-funded project for unemployed members of the LGBT community in and around Sheffield, aimed at developing filmmaking skills and employability skills. The project empowered participants with the abilities of storytelling and filmmaking whilst educating members of the public about LGBT diversity through the films that the participants produced.
As part of this very successful project the group chose to create three short films; one of which documents a live debate discussing the need for a “gay scene”. The second participant-made film deals with the myths that surround bisexuality and the third is a volunteer-made film documenting the process of making these two films.
"Having been a volunteer for the EDEN Action! Project, I have seen first hand the level of dedication and commitment that goes on at E.D.E.N Film Productions. Managing Director Claire Watkinson consistently puts 100% into every project, every task and every person and it's been an absolute pleasure to work alongside her.
I can't recommend a company more committed to equality, understanding and change for the better."
“E.D.E.N Film Productions have given me great experiences working professionally with very talented film makers. The films they make are very informative and interesting and have taught me lots about the Sheffield Community.”
