Faze 3 Films is making a documentary about the experience of children of miners who were on strike during 1984-85. They have begun filming but would appreciate a wider range of participants and from differing areas than those already filmed. References on Facebook on a childhood shaped by the strike, is seen as an important area to document, as many children’s lives were affected. They are based in the North East and would welcome participants from this area; Northumberland and Durham. If anyone is interested, contact Tom Johnson through faze3films.uk or firstname.lastname@example.org or Facebook page faze3films
