Minion Moves was a project created by a group of young people from Lismore Comprehensive School in conjunction with The Oasis Youth Club STEP-UP Programme. This short film was designed to portray the isolation and vulnerability that can be experienced by a teenager who arrives in a new area for the very first time. As those involved in the project all used English as a second language it was agreed to use the concept of a silent movie that had a distinct slapstick comedy value.
Facilitator- Diane Jessie Miller
Project Manager- Rebekah Hampton
The young people involved in the project were responsible for the scripting, directing, filming and acting of the short film, learning new skills, making new friends and having fun, whilst communicating a serious message of inclusion and integration.
