Synopsis: Wakefield City Council (06/02/2018)

Wakefield is a city in West Yorkshire, England, on the River Calder and the eastern edge of the Pennines, which had a population of 99,251 at the 2011 census.

Wakefield was dubbed the "Merrie City" in the Middle Ages and in 1538 John Leland described it as, "a very quick market town and meately large; well served of fish and flesh both from sea and by rivers ... so that all vitaile is very good and chepe there. A right honest man shall fare well for 2d. a meal. ... There be plenti of se coal in the quarters about Wakefield".

We were lucky enough to work with Wakefield Council in 2011 where we wrote, directed and shot a short film in collaboration with the council. Using Walton woods as our back drop, the comical short was brought to life using nothing more than the nature around us. The short film was entered into the Leeds Film Festival and was nominated for the final award, unfortunately due to multiple entries by us in the same year, we pulled the Wakefield short film and opted for the Leeds based one instead.
