Film Making by Wendy Freer

I hold accreditation from the University of Hull and have undergone various other short training courses in film and animation. As an Education Consultant in ICT my specialist fields were film-making, animation and interactive whiteboards.

I have made various documentary films and was the founder of Ashby Museum Film Unit which has now disbanded. However, I am still making films with my own Heritage Group, Pudding Bag Productions, formed in 2013. Our first historical drama film was about everyday life in Ashby de la Zouch during the English Civil Wars and was called A Town Divided. It featured 19 young actors from the Rising Stars Film & TV School in Ashby.

Below are details of some of my earlier films. Since then I have made 17 films about life in Ashby in 2010 for the Museum, a film about Ashby The Spa Town, a film about the Standard Soap Company, Ashby, a film about the Diamond Jubilee celebrations in Ashby and a film about the archaeological excavation at St Helen's Church, Ashby in 2012.


Earlier films include:

A Century of Praise

A film about Canal Boatmen's missions with particular reference to the St Andrews Mission Church, Burscough which celebrated its centenary in 2005.
