We went out after school on Friday to shoot this short film. It was a little too easy to not get any other children in the video.
The idea by behind this short video is that too many children are stuck indoors. Instead of being ‘free-range’ they are more, as Tim Gill has said, more ‘battery reared’. We could have made this by showing a child caged indoors, but I felt that showing a child in an ‘out of place’ way in places that they should be ‘in place’ more exposes the point with greater contrast: children should have the opportunity to play outdoors more.
