    Our House

    3:46 pm on August 25,

    Summer 2014

    Our House is the third in a trilogy of films made with young people in care. The first two are ‘My Name is Joe’ & ‘Finding my Way’.

    The project was devised by Valerie Dunn Research Associate, University of Cambridge/CLAHRC EoE & Trish Sheil, Cambridgeshire Film Consortium. Film Animated & Directed by Elizabeth Hobbs Music & Sound by James Rogers

    ‘Our House’ is the third in a trilogy of films made by and with young people in care, researchers, film and sound artists, social care professionals and volunteers in Cambridgeshire. Ten young people, aged 12-23, with experience of living in residential care homes worked on this film. The young people put forward the issue of residential care as an important area they wanted to address through film. So in August 2014 we gathered for our third animation summer school to bring their ideas and experiences to life through animation and sound.

    Our previous films are My Name is Joe, about being taken into care, and Finding My Way about leaving care, which won a BFI Future Film Documentary Award in February 2014:
