Action! Draper kids make own movie

A group of kids have shot to the top of the class after making two short films together.

The nineteen-week Saturday project at Draper House in Elephant and Castle taught eight children how to write and produce their own films.

Led by filmmaker, Andy Lee, the nine to twelve-year-olds decided to make one film about ‘Pancake Magic’ and a documentary entitled ‘Draper Voices’, where the children interviewed residents in their tower block home.

War veteran, John Bishop, makes an appearance as the 96-year-old resident tells the kids about his part in the D-Day landing in Normandy.

The Draper Film Project is now in its second year after it was first established in 2014 by Draper Estate chair (and filmmaker), Luisa Pretaloni, and deputy chair, Julian Adamoli.
