The Challenge

The Inclusion and Diversity team at Basildon Council asked us to produce a short fiction film based on real life reported incidents that highlights the various hate crimes that could occur in the area.

The Solution

We worked closely with Basildon Council and the Hate Crime team at Essex Police to devise a script that covered all the areas categorised as 'hate crimes'. We then cast, 13 local actors and filmed on one location across the course of a summer's day. The film is intended to be discussed in a classroom and other outreach settings and pauses and captions were added to the film for clarity.

The Result
