We have been very impressed indeed with the videos our 2015-16 IFP students submitted for their Tower Hamlets projects. It is clear that a great deal of thought and effort has gone into the making of these videos, with some representing excellent standards of work. Some groups have obviously worked very well together, and is is very pleasing to see such positive collaboration within the cohort so early on in the programme. More videos will be added to the collection below if and when their authors provide permission to share, but please do browse and enjoy the videos below:
Huge thanks to all the ELSS tutors who guided their groups through such successful projects (in a very limited period of time) and indeed to subject lecturers who contributed questions, reading materials, and suggestions. Subject lecturers who have seen the videos have been very impressed.
Jill Fenton, from Human Geography, wrote the following about her three favourite videos:
Especially I liked the first one, the filming and the jazz music background seemed to bring alive the location. I also enjoyed the one on graffiti and public art although as someone who researches about Street Art I would query some terminology used in the film! The film that began in front of the Cable Street mural and a definition of multiculturalism, in fact that really attempted to get behind the meaning of this word, was also good. My overall favourite of the videos has to be the one that combined filming with narrative and jazz.
Jack McGowan, our History lecturer, gave this verdict on the World War Two video:
This is excellent – very detailed, articulate, and very impressive. They should feel really pleased with themselves.
We all hope you enjoy watching the videos as much as we did.
