HAMPSHIRE CULTURAL TRUST

100 THANK YOU'S

THE BRIEF

Hampshire Cultural Trust's 100 Thank You’s project is an arts programme commemorating the active role of the Gurkhas in World War One. In order to highlight and demonstrate the important work that the project was carrying out, the organisers asked us to work with them to create a film. The film needed to show young people at work, Gurkhas engaging with the local community, but not to lose sight of the important message about World War One that project was trying to get across.

WHAT WE DID

We worked with the organisers to create a filming plan that allowed for a nine month project. We focussed on bringing a team that could be flexible, and that could capture the various art sessions in a way that was both unobtrusive and creative. With this footage and a series of interviews that we captured throughout the project, we were able to create a film that spoke in depth about the project, whilst maintaining a strong historical focus.

ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

Hampshire Cultural Trust's 100 Thank You’s project is a commemorative project marking the centenary of the end of the World War One, particularly with a focus on the active role that Gurkhas played in it. At three schools in the Rushmoor area, young people met with serving and ex-Gurkhas, visited museums and learned from artists in order to create creative responses from this. The project not only gives young people the opportunity to be creative, but leaves them with a greater understanding of the Gurkhas role in World War One and the people in their community.

 
"Broken Physics are a flexible, creative and hard-working company who produce high quality film. Hampshire Cultural Trust have asked them to shoot a variety of short documentary films to showcase our social impact projects and we have been delighted with the results. Emma and Craig create a comfortable but professional environment and are always keen to capture great footage to produce the best possible product. I would not hesitate to recommend them."
