Talk About…

Talk About” is a cross-generational media project that uses Oral History to connect young and old people in the community and help young people develop their confidence and skills.  After listening to two elders from their community, Yvonne and Les Dennis, tell stories about their past, young people from Haringey Tuition Service wrote stories about the present day that mirrored them.  They then role-played these in front of a green screen and made drawings and collages to create backgrounds for the stories.  The young people took control of all aspects of the project: interviewing, filming, acting, directing, design, music and some of the editing and produced an impressive programme that achieves all of the project aims.
