Axholme Academy and Cut Ltd. from Scunthorpe have won the 2016 Into Film Award for Best Documentary (12 and under) with their politically charged film Hear Me Roar. William is equally enthralled and horrified by the idea of inspiring a generation of nihilistic teenagers. As a teenage member of youth parliament, it would be easy to jump to conclusions about his political leanings, but would you be correct? Click on this link to watch the film

Cut were awarded a special 'Genre Commission' to make 6 documentaries. We were approached because we provide the assurances of professionally finished short films alongside quality outcomes for young people. We have a demonstrable track record in delivering high quality participatory filmmaking projects for young people aged 5 to 19.

Hull is one of only 12 areas in England to received funding from the Big Lottery Fund to develop a local ‘HeadStart’ project.

Cut are thrilled to be working with SMASH to create a new documentary for the See It Make It - Outreach project.
