We have used Another Direction ltd to produce a number of dvds showcasing our work as an organisation. Through the five year period we have commissioned Another Direction we have found them to be professional, creative, innovative, supportive, cost effective and responsive to the needs of our organisation. Our professional relationship has grown as has Another Direction’s reputation locally for delivering high quality media work. We have commissioned DVD’s, media poster campaigns, still photography and most recently a marketing strategy for a new project.

As always, Another Direction Ltd was very professional, however clearer written information could have smoothed the project in places. A jargon free, clear plan, with deadlines and contingencies would have been good, this could include all contact numbers for the crew as well, just in case they are needed.
Teenage pregnancy project
A 25 minutes preventative information video about teenage pregnancy. The structure of this truly participatory piece was built around a chat show format where real young mothers took part in several workshops including; Drama, Music, Web Design, Animation, Radio and Video Production. All these were used to formulate the chat show, presented and hosted by teenage mothers themselves. The guest on the show were also teenage parents who were invited to talk about their sexual experiences and the difficulties of becoming a parent at such a young age. Drama sketches, radio debates and vox pops from Barking and Dagenham town centre were used to support the show, touching on subjects ranging from sex and alcohol to contraception and absent fathers.
