My First Year: Being Elliot
My First Year: Being Elliot | Channel 4 | Dragonfly Film & TV
Series of 12 x 30’ films
A year in the life of eleven year old kids as they experience their first year at a Bradford secondary school. Their world, seen through their eyes, the series deals with rites-of-passage themes like first love, bullying, finding a best friend and rivalry on the football pitch, and is an inventive and ambitious hybrid of observational documentary, musical drama and animation.
“Imaginative, funny, sweet and moving – with not a hoodie in sight.” Bradford Telegraph & Argus
“The straightforward honesty of the children marks this out from other documentaries” Yorkshire Post
