A digital:works project capturing the voices of former Thames Dock Workers
We took the rough edit to both schools so they could see an edited version for the first time. Feedback from all the children was very positive. About a third of the children thought it was too long but the most common criticism was that there weren't enough breaks in the talking and that splitting the film into subtle sections would help the narrative and provide opportunities to have short breaks from the talking.
There was a strong consensus that the balance between talking heads and cutaways was good.
