Focus 24: 24 Hours in Tamworth

Focus 24: 24 Hours in Tamworth

Tamworth in Motion is the outcome of a commission by Tamworth Arts and Events to crowd source footage from Tamworth residents with the brief of sharing ‘the beauty, the unusual and the norm of everyday in Tamworth. Working with a small group of local film makers, we first explored the genre of film we might make before working through the narrative curve, which for the final piece became about movement. Working collaboratively with different experiences and preferences was a challenge that the group faced admirably and quickly came together behind the more abstract and in their words ‘arty’ vision for Tamworth in Motion. The film utilises crowd sourced film submitted via Facebook alongside footage captured specifically by the group to meet their narrative. Footage selection was collaborative and delivered alongside a professional training session, with Chris of acquismedia completing the final edit on the group’s behalf.

We are lucky to be regularly approached by performers, directors and choreographers in receipt of funding to conceive and develop performance based projects. They sometimes involve us as early as at the point of writing a funding application and always from the point of funding. Below are a few of our projects that fall into this type.

The Brief : 

Expand on our role as Production Manager for the previous four Sandwell Arts Festivals to include a weekend performance by No Fit State Circus. 

We have been supporting Sandwell Borough Council in Production Management of Sandwell Arts Festival since 2010. We have seen the festival through different producers, locations and timescales and enjoy the challenge of each new year.

In 2015 Creative Black Country, set up to realise the Creative People and Places initiative, integrated their Black Country tour of 'Open House' into the festival and gave us the challenge of staging their large scale circus performance at New Square shopping centre, West Bromwich. 

We expertly navigated the complexities of staging an outdoor event in a location with many stakeholders and land owners and ensured the company were able to fully realise their ambitions for Sandwell.
