This five minute piece was born from a desire to experiment and to have fun.
I wanted to play with the horror genre, but was unsure of how to go about it.
The idea for School came following a conversation with a friend who works as a teacher.
Her class (aged 8 & 9) had come up with a story during a writing exercise which turned out to be incredibly sinister.
With her permission, I adapted the story.
I was lucky enough to involve the children who had originally come up with the story, which you can hear throughout the feature.
The audio-design is sourced from collected sounds and sound effects.
The actress playing the role of the ‘teacher’ is Robyn Bennett.
A very special thank you to Ruby Eadon and her class at Winston Way Primary School, Ilford.
