OUR STORY

THE IDEA

 

After several years gaining experience in media and education across the UK, when returning to his roots in Worcestershire, CBC founder Sachia was surprised to find that there weren't any creative arts or community media centres like he had experienced elsewhere. 

 

These creative community hubs were hives of activity where local like-minded people could meet and collaborate together on community arts and media engagement projects. 

 

He decided that he wanted the same for his local area.

THE BEGINNING

In 2014, a team of film-makers gathered together in a warehouse to create The CBC’s first Community Project.  Many had little or no previous experience within the film industry; but with heaps of enthusiasm and a willingness to learn, they were mentored by supportive industry crew and assigned the task of producing a socially themed short-film. 

In August 2014, with new company-directors on board, The CBC officially launched with fabulous local community support. 

 

To date we have engaged thousands of people and this number is ever increasing, through our project participants and viewing audience. 

FUTURE PLANS

We have a franchise vision to bring the same innovative community and business benefits across all regions of the UK.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU

It is impossible to individually thank every one who has been part of our journey so far - so many wonderful people have given so much to The CBC's development from one man's dream, to the creation of films that are important to so many.

However, there are those who have been supportive along the way who deserve an extra special thanks for enabling us to be where we are today.

Loz Samuels, KAF - for her creative advice, support and giving The CBC the opportunity of its first KAF commission. 

Miles Griffiths, Serfis - our first CSR sponsor, enabling us to produce our first community project: 'The Means', and subsequently move into our own office space.  With their belief, CBC got off the ground!

Mike Oliver Brooke & Ben Bennett, KDYT - for their constant support and being a source of mentoring and advice on so many topics. 

Mark Oakes, Bond Worth - Initially a source of practical business advice, Mark saw the value of sponsoring CBC and our promise of making CSR a two-way street:  Bond Worth now has its own film telling the heritage of their company.

We thank Mark for his continued support, particularly as someone who shares our passion for local heritage.
