Using green screen technology, Archives+ and Manchester Libraries worked together with young people, parents and LGBTQI organisations attending the family day to share their thoughts about what “family” means to them.

We had lots of fun and learnt new skills along the way. Throughout the day young people interviewed each other and their families, asking the question “What does family mean to you?” They added all the clips together using iMovie to create an 8 minute film which was produced and directed by Ruby and Sadie.

When the final workshop came to a close we invited everyone to come and take a look at our screening. The room was packed out, standing room only, all waiting in anticipation to see the final cut. Below is the result of a fun and creative day, sharing thoughts hopes and messages of love…not a dry eye in the house!
