Director Statement

Hello, I am Harry Shires and thank you for considering this short film as part of your film festival.

I work as a school teacher and in my spare time I run an after school club making movies with children aged 7-11 years old.

I've discovered that there are only a handful of really active film making clubs for children in the UK that showcase their hard work online. I really take great satisfaction in showing the world our work and I hope you can see how much effort has gone into it.

All our films are made by the children in their entirety. As director and club runner, I merely facilitate.
