Fast Forward Films uses a therapeutic participatory video approach to film production
Production teams, made up of participants, are trained onsite and are supported throughout to share insight and understanding of the issues they face.
We have been developing engaging and life changing films for a range of different people, including youth justice groups, domestic violence programmes, homeless groups and 3rd sector charities.
“Fast Forward Films have recently worked with our organisation to produce 4 films. Those participating in the project were deeply moved and challenged to consider their individual experience. The films portray their message in an artful and captivating manner that has positively impacted the intended audience — I highly recommend Martin for his extremely creative film work and the use of this medium to explore the human experience as an individual and society. He is a truly gifted, caring and professional individual.” M.M Emmaus. Linkedin recommendation
The work combines professional film training and production with an empowering and enabling evidence based approach. Finished projects are sensitive, powerful and professional.
“As a result of our appraisal here at I believe the work is worthwhile and valuable worthy of further development. Many of the young participants believed that the project was relevant, appropriate and informative. Facilitation of the project was undertaken in a professional and safe manner. “

“My life has been a pretty bad. Making this film has allowed me see that I do have something of real value to give back to society and I’m not just worthless. I hope that my message makes a difference even to one person”
