MANOR GARDENS CENTRE / CASUAL FILMS CHRISTMAS ACADEMY

MANOR GARDENS CENTRE

Christmas is a particularly lonely time for lonely people. This film aims to remind people of all of those who don't have friends or families to be with this Christmas. We hope it inspires just one person to pick up the phone, knock on their neighbour's door or have a cup of tea with someone they know. Originally produced by the Casual Films Academy for the Manor Garden Centre in London. We thought it dealt with a cause that's wide enough for us to share further afield. We hope you liked watching it and that you just might take some action as a result. Happy Christmas / Season's greetings from all at Casual Films / Casual Films Academy / Manor Gardens Centre. Please take it, download it, play it wherever you want. This is our gift to an issue we should all be ashamed of. The Casual Films Academy trains young people from the Inner London area in the basics of filmmaking. It does this by producing a film for a small local charity, so they can learn about the process in a 'real life' situation. They get the experience and something for their showreel, and the charity gets a film they can use to promote themselves. http://casualfilms.com/sustainability/the-casual-academy/ The Manor Gardens Centre is a fantastic charity that helps a broad section of people from the local community. The look after everyone from from FGM victims to youth groups and older people to asylum seekers. Last year they celebrated their 100th anniversary. We thought they were a perfect charity to support with this special Christmas time Casual Films Academy. http://www.manorgardenscentre.org/ Cast: Elderly man: Edward Philips Young man: Korrie Powell Crew: Casual Academy: Sophie Douglas Korrie Powell Charlie Diver Harry Fisher Antonia Enemuwe Kelvin Chiu Anuli D.
