Description

METRO-BOULOT-DODO worked with a group of Year 10 students from Sir Jonathan North to create a 30 minute film investigating the different issues associated with bullying. The film created was a mockumentary in the style of the iconic T.V. series The Office. A documentary team followed Dave as he made an arts in education film about bullying, as the week progresses, however, events take a sinister turn as an incident of real bullying occurs between two of the girls. The project was created in a week long residency and involved the students being in front and behind the camera. The students learnt filming techniques and performance skills whilst exploring the sensitive issue of bullying.

The project was a huge success and the film was screened at Phoenix Square during the Leicester Comedy Festival 2011.
