I am very happy and excited to be part of this "Gamelab London" project (I set up and supervised the post production pipeline and did the on set supervising):
"A bully and his victim find themselves lost in a fantasy world.
Bemused and scared, the travellers are calmed by the spirit who will take them on a journey to help them understand anger, fear and loneliness.The musical featured in this programme was developed and performed by groups of pupils with special educational needs. At the end of the musical itself there are a few short workshops which can help
classes who would like to try to produce the musical themselves."
This is a musical I Know Me devised by Owen Smith and Rebecca Applin. All music is original and has been composed, arranged and directed by Rebecca Applin. The production has been produced and directed by Martin Wright and was devised over several months working with pupils from Abbey Hill School and Performing Arts Academy, Haringey Sixth Form Centre and College Park School. Other than the role of the Spirit taken by Kali Perkins, all other parts were performed entirely by pupils from the participating schools. The intended audience is similar schools with SEN provision and is designed to encourage such schools to produce the musical themselves. The programme will also appear on BBC Learning Zone Class clips in due course and will be supported with downloadable scores, lyrics and MP3 backing tracks.
