Social History Bradford West Yorkshire 2010
This is a unique project, it's main aim was to create a document that could serve as a kind of time capsule - a social history focused film package exploring some of the signifiers of social condition in the lives of modern young people. Fashions, technologies, interests and styles all unmediated against the socio-economic background of Bradford 2010 - a city in decline at the start of the recent recession.
These films are currently acquired by the regional Film Archive and remain there as a research resource for future generations to learn from and enjoy.
On a personal level though I feel that it's the characters of these people that will shine through the centuries - quirky and real, ordinary and unique in their daily lives - portrayed simply 'as they were' they are truly enjoyable and enlightening documentary films made in such a way as to let you, the audience relate to them personally.
All films on this site were produced, directed and created by Ed Torsney unless otherwise stated - this is a portfolio website that hosts my work as a moving image artist and film maker and as such I retain copyright over all these moving image compositions.
