We were among 50+ projects included in Web Fest so to win amongst such strong competition is amazing. We'd really like to thank all those that came to our screening and the judges for recognising all of the hard work and sleepless nights it took to make the project happen.
We're really happy that One For Ten, our interactive documentary series about innocent people that were on death row has been accepted for a it's first few festivals. We kicked off with the Portland Film Festival and followed by a few hometown soirees. We've been accepted to The Smalls film festival, a specialist shorts film festival and also we're really happy to announce our acceptance to the first ever Webfest at this years Raindance Film Festival. We're sure that there will be more to come, but we're happy that so far, festivals are taking notice of the films, the content and our new documentary format.

Our new interactive documentary series on the death penalty, One For Ten has been a huge success. We managed to make it across America and film all ten films in five weeks, realeasing the films live during our mammoth five and a half thousand mile road trip. We're super excited about pulling it off and the reception that we've received. Not only have our followers been highly involved as we'd hoped, but we got some great coverage in the Guardian and The Metro.
Check out our website to see how it all went, read up on the facts of the death penalty or just see some pics of us on the road. Here's a film to wet your appetite.
Tate approached us to help make a newsround style film featuring some pupils from Rotherhithe Primary School about the governments proposed Ebac education program and the lack of arts within it.
We made this film for Mind The Product, the first ever purely product manager conference in London. It brought together the minds behind google, kickstarter etc. to talk about the future of products.
We made this film for Childline at Latitude 2012 to act as a guide for first time festival goers. We spent three days in the mud asking people for their tips and this is what we came up with.
We went along with the Tate to Camp Bestival for the second year in a row. We made this film about Maryssa Dowlings photography workshop based on Family Matters and we also made a film live on site documenting the Tate's work and the festival in general. The 6 minute film showed on the main stage screens for the second two days of the festival.
Here's a video showing the film that we made live on site at Camp Bestival. We filmed Friday and Saturday for Camp Bestival and The Tate and the film was edited on site and up on the main stage screen within two hours of filming finishing. The film then showed throughout Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
We made this little film for Huddle to show off their new user interface. We worked with Gabrielle Herzog to make the illustrations after our collaboration on their IPad film and then made them in to a little stop frame animation to kick of the film. www.huddle.com http://www.gabrieleherzog.com/
We had a good laugh this morning filming with football pundit Chris Kamara. Stay tuned to see what we were up to.
We produced a video in conjunction with Thought Shuffle called the Llama Predictor. With our friends at Ashdown Llama Farm, we filmed our Llama predicting the Champions League Final result to see if we'd found the new Paul The Octopus. The video peaked at 150K views before the champions league final and was featured in the Metro, Daily Telegraph the BBC and other news sites. The video's continued to be viewed. Here's to 'Llama' and we're hoping to find out if he can continue the streak during Euro 2012.
So we're all moving well with death row project, One For Ten. We have now got many organisations on board and have a total outreach of 1.5 million people and growing. We got Danny Glover to record a Voice Over for our test film (photo below) that we shot in the states and now it's just more planning and fundraising. To keep up to date with what we're up to, follow the project on facebook or twitter.
We made this film for childline, asking people what their favourite music is and how music can help you cope.
Our music torture radio documentary went out over the weekend and was repeated three times and played across the globe. The documentary was received well and we got emails from all over the globe about it. It was picked by the London Metro as the radio program of the week to catch up on and is available on the iplayer as well as on itunes.
Our BBC World Service Radio documentary on the use of Music as a form of torture during the 'War on Terror' will be broadcast on the World Service on Saturday the 17th of March and repeated on Sunday and Monday. It will then be online and available as a free podcast for download.Check out more details here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00ph36x
