Hazard Alley Film Premiere

    Hazard Alley is proudly premiering a promotional film on Friday 6th October. It captures the magic of learning about safety in the life-size village for primary aged children. The film has been made by media production students at the University of Northampton for the charity.

    Hazard Alley creates opportunities for learning in many different ways and was delighted to partner with the Changemaker Café at the University of Northampton to give media production students a real life brief to make a promotional film for the centre. It features local school children enjoying scenarios such as a street, railway crossing, kitchen and miniature lake with interaction about stranger danger, what to do in the event of a fire in the home, how to cross the road safely and how to make a 999 call from a phone box. With sound bites from Fire and police service officers explaining why a visit is essential to learning, and endorsement from local teachers the short film highlights how valuable a visit to Hazard Alley can be.

    Jo Green, Centre Director said “Hazard Alley is quite a difficult place to describe and to imagine without seeing it, so the film shows really well the benefits of the immersive learning experience that we offer. We are delighted to have given the students the experience of working to a live brief and very much hope that it will help them in their careers when they graduate. ”

    Abi Wickes, Social Enterprise Engagement lead at the University of Northampton said “The University of Northampton is internationally recognised as a Changemaker University and this film encapsulates why. It’s very rewarding to see a group of students put what they’ve learnt with us to good use by freely offering their services to a very worthwhile local charity.

    “Our Digital Media students met the Safety Centre through our Changemaker Hub and were immediately very enthusiastic to produce the film free of charge. They felt it was a fantastic opportunity to work with a ‘real life’ project whilst supporting an organisation that saves children’s lives.

    “Everyone involved has been very impressed with their professional approach and the final video is fantastic. We are very proud of them and are delighted that this film will form part of their portfolio. “
