Urban and the shed crew
I was asked to produced new creative for the DVD release of feature film Urban and the Shed Crew’. Using existing photography I was asked to produce something that stood out, so I created a more urban feel than that used on the festival circuit.
Based on Bernard Hare’s Orwell nominated memoir Urban and The Shed Crew. 11 year old Urban’s been running away from care since he was 5, (6 care, 8 foster homes in 6 years), he’s Britain’s most runaway child…When he can’t find his mum, he sleeps rough on the streets, or in a shed with other runaways, The Shed Crew’. He’s never known a dad, just his mentally ill, addict mum, Greta. So when she meets Chop, the first decent bloke they’ve ever known, Urban feels hope for the first time. For Chop, the once idealistic ex-social worker, it’s a chance of redemption. He takes the broken family in, helps Greta., teaches Urban and his brother Frank lessons in life. But the family’s new found happiness is all too fleeting as Greta’s propensity to self-destruct proves too strong…leaving Urban to cope with the fallout the only way he knows how.
