Locality – Community Organisers

The roots of community organising go back to the late 1880s in the USA. Recently Locality, an organisation dedicated to empowering communities, has worked at introducing the concept to the UK. This film was commissioned to show four successful examples of community organising for a Whitehall presentation. A three-day single camera video-journalist style shoot took us to Castleford, Nottingham and London. The London shoot was in three locations (Shoreditch, Tower Hamlets and Lambeth) and completed in a single day, including train travel to and from the capital! This footage was edited together with some simple info-graphic style animation and an inspiring film was made.
