Right to Play

In recent years children’s playtime has been reduced by as much as 45 minutes despite the fact that research shows play is crucial for children’s development and wellbeing.

For this film we worked with The British Psychological Society and filmed a group of primary school children to get to the heart of the matter and captured their take on the impact of reduced playtimes in a fun and informal way. We filmed them in a simple location and watched them entertain themselves while discussing why playtime was so important for their learning, creativity, expression and general happiness.

How Play Changed the World

Here is another short video we produced for the British Psychological Society, How Play Changed the World, where author and former children’s laureate Michael Rosen puts it plainly: play is a fundamental right to be enjoyed by adults and children alike.

The videos attracted a lot of press coverage from news outlets including ITV News and The Independent.
