Media Co-Op Limited is a video
and photographic creative writing and training group based in
London. Our mentors and producers are freelance and work project-by-project.
In 2002 we generated 'Pictures from
Our World,' a photographic project with Lottery Awards for All
funding about the way Her Majesty the Queen's Jubilee was celebrated
across England., supervised by Carol Gould. The project culminated
in an exhibition in London that received accolades from the photographic
press. Participants were Ciaran O'Reilly; Beatrice Ruffini; Susan
Brooks; Bradley Richards and Michael and Dominic Lester.
Media Co-Op collaborated with Culture
Mix on 'An African in London,' a video with Lottery Awards for
All funding about South Africans living in London, some of whom
emigrated during the dark days of apartheid. Produced and Directed
by Carol Gould, those interviewed included Deputy High Commissioner
George Johannes; ANC activist Thembi Nobadula; architect Isaac
Benjamin; music impresario Geraldine Auerbach MBE and economist
Leo Katzen. Production participants included Amy Guttman; Nick
Watson and Dan Ablett.
In 2003 Media Co-Op has been developing
a new website, soon-to-be-launched Current Viewpoint. Projects
in development include 'A Room at Camp Pickett' with Minority
Media Co-Op was the brainchild of a
group of older industry professionals who were originally associated
with Ruby Pictures, whose projects were taken on by us in mid-2003.
Development of a film version of Carol Gould's book, 'Spitfire
Girls' and of 'Regina' is on the cards for 2003-2004.
Media Co-Op's staff and freelancers
are available for consultancy on video project development. We
are planning to open an office in the United States in late 2003.
In 2005-06 we co-produced with Culture Mix, Minority Media and Heritage Films 'Black GIs in Britain;' 'Blitz Entertainers;' 'The Bevin Boys;' 'The Evacuees;' 'The Jewish Evacuees; and 'Michael Mason Goes Back.' In 2007-08, provided the health of Carol Gould improves, we plan a film about British children of American GIs, in collaboration with Creative Images.
