Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties

FROM SINNERS INTO WINNERS
by
BRAD WENDES

As some of you know, I have been involved in a teaching project for the past three months at the Furness school in Kent.

The project was originally meant to teach the boys the basics of Parkour, and for a dance choreographer to fit those moves and 'theme' into a dance - all to be performed on stage.

After a few weeks, we decided that the Parkour side of things would be lost if we put it into a dance.

We decided instead to make a film featuring Parkour AND Dance seperately.

This morning, after much sleep-deprivation, I finished editing the video. (I'm not a film-maker, and don't pretend to be. But I did my best)

I'll give you some background on the school;
The Furness School is a special school for children who have emotional and behavioural difficulties. In another words a school for 'bad' or 'disturbed' kids.

The boys at this school have been kicked out of all their local schools for violence / anger / drugs / attitude. Furness semi-residential, with very small classes and VERY patient teaching staff.

I'd like you to keep that in mind when you watch the video.

This film was made after 8 weeks with the boys, the first challenge was getting the kids interested enough to participate, then geting them to learn some basic skills.

On the day of filming, the boys were incredibly well behaved and did exactly as they were told.

This film was shot in 5 hours.

.....anyway, enough of me rambling on. Here's the vid.
