Latest Film Project
Posted by Kevin Hicks on 14th February 2012

Berlin, November 1938. An average German Family waits anxiously at the dinner table; the streets have been in uproar all day.  They know they are not safe but they are trapped.  Follow them into the ensuing Holocaust as each tells, in turn, the story of their journey and see who survives.

History Squad together with Blue Hippo Media have once again joined forces to make an original film called The Journey.  Purpose made for the education market, it will illustrate to students the subject of the Holocaust which will enable them to think critically about history and its contemporary comparisons and raise understanding and tolerance. THE FILM ONCE FINISHED WILL BE USED THROUGHOUT THE UK AND INTERNATIONALLY BY SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES as well as be entered into INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVALS.

We really do appreciate that money is tight for everyone at the moment, but this is a chance for you to have a real hand in making this film happen and encouraging tolerance and understanding across many borders.

There is a relatively new concept of “Crowd Funding” in which everyone can ‘get into the movies’.  It means that even small donations really will make a big difference and enable us to complete the film. 

There are various levels of investment you might consider:
In addition to a very big thank you from us,
£25 will get your name in the credits together with a copy of the DVD.
£50 will get your name in the credits together with a copy of the DVD and 2 invites to the premiere.
£100 will get you all of the above plus 2 copies of the DVD, 4 invites to the premiere and a signed copy of the script.
£1,500 (only 4 available).  Major sponsors will receive all of the above plus a special evening/screening of the film, together with a talk by the writer & Director/producer.  A visit to the set during filming and 10 invites to the premiere and after party and their logo with “supported by” on the credits.

This is a great opportunity to get involved with a really interesting educational project.  If you, your school, business or organisation would consider making an investment or even arrange a fund-raising event in order to help with in this remarkable venture, please get in touch with Kevin Hicks on 01926 613700 or email us at
