Ask! - The Project

Ask! is our ongoing video interview series. The idea for Ask! was born following a visit to Collingwood from David Bradley, star of the classic British film ‘Kes’.

David agreed to be the subject of an interview in our recording studio. All of the research, questions, filming and sound recording for the David Bradley interview was the work of students and the video was a great success. We quickly realised that turning that initial video into a series would create a fantastic learning platform for the school.

Not only would we be involving our young people in the technical aspects of video production and subject research, we would also have a way to build self esteem and self confidence.
