Ahead of the grand opening at Westfield Stratford City our young filmmakers, Constant Pictures filmed the concierge staff being fitted with their specially commissioned uniforms by fashion designer Julian J Smith. Director Eugene Osei said 'I'd be happy to walk out in one of those suits, they look good'. Constant Pictures have been following the East London designer's journey through the commission process. Find out more about it here.

This week Constant Pictures shot an interview with product designer Lee Broom [above] as his specially commissioned lights were installed at the new Westfield shopping centre in Stratford, East London. Inspired by jewelry and re-appropriating fairground light bulbs, the lights add a unique touch to the retail centre which opens next month.

Yes, this week we made FIVE films in ONE day! Whilst on a Creativity Quest [something like a treasure hunt with lots of creative challenges], over 200 young people were exploring the Olympic Host Boroughs of Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest and Greenwich. Groups sent back video footage and e.mailed photos to us so we could include them in a series of 1 minute films about each borough. The young contributors re-grouped at the end if the day to watch the edited films. Everyone was very happy with the results and our fast turn around which we now have finely honed! Watch the Hackney film below.

Commissioned by the Barbican Centre, this week we are documenting an arts festival at the City of London Academy - Islington. ArtsFest is an annual week-long festival involving a whole school in arts activities delivered by professional practitioners.
Our Associate Filmmaker Winstan Whitter is introducing sixth form students at the Academy to documentary filmmaking whilst working with them to capture the best of the Barbican in their school. One of our young filmmakers from Constant Pictures Muzzammil Hashmi is assisting on the project where he is able to pass on his video production skills to his peers. We'll be uploading the finished film in a couple of weeks.......
