Documentary NCOP in Liverpool
About the project

Short documentaries

19 Students from five South London schools spent three days in Liverpool as part of the London National Collaborative Outreach Programme. This is a record of that experience.

Positive review

Asking Sylwia, PIC TREE founder, to make some short films for us has been a truly valuable experience. Not only was the end product exactly what we wanted, but there was also a great deal of satisfaction in the fact that Sylwia managed to make me feel that I had been part of the creative process! Making a film which purports to represent seventeen-year-olds is likely to be full of pitfalls, but not only did they all love it, but the government agency we were making it for liked it so much they said that Sylwia could clearly teach them a thing or two. This double success was the result of deep empathy with her subjects combined with a creative flair brought to bear on a fairly mundane brief.
