Dudey Movie

Forming a group of local teenagers to research and produce a unique video inspired by the film making ideas pioneered in Holmfirth over 100 years ago. Together we made an original short film introducing and updating the original material.

A new short film inspired by the ground-breaking 'Bamforth shorts' made in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire at the dawn of the movie era.

Over a period of several months we worked with a group of local teenagers to research and produce a video film developing the film making ideas pioneered over 100 years ago. Together we made an original short film premiered at a grand launch event and screening.

The movie has many features in common with the early silent movies that were our inspiration: humour, clear-cut plot lines, physical comedy, simple camera tricks, cross-dressing - and local talent.

Where can I see it?

An interactive touring display Cabinet housed in a remodelled former arcade machine shows the movie on the press of a button. It tours to an evolving range of youth clubs, schools, libraries and others venues, and is currently at the Watershed in Slaithwaite, West Yorkshire.

A DVD package featuring the movie and other informative video from the project - Bamforths and the early film making, more project details and some of our test films - is now available, please contact us for more details.

DVD video available.
