'Captain Catch' Silent Films

'Captain Catch' Silent Films

Captain Catch’s Silent Film Festival’ is a project funded by the Seafish Strategic Investment Fund and delivered by Beard Askew. Involving five classes of primary school pupils from England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales the project helped illustrate a number of important seafood industry topics. Is this something we could do to celebrate fishing on the Manhood Peninsula?

The series of five silent films highlights a range of issues including safety at sea, seafood sustainability and the health benefits of eating fish. From the conception of ideas, to storyboarding and acting, the children have created a range of must-see short silent films which will entertain and inform all.

To watch the films just go to the exclusive Seafish YouTube playlist and for more information on the project please email Courtnay Baird.
