Abigail Gilchrist and Hannah Blackmore are back at the Adventure Playgrounds after a short break from our PLAYAWAY project.

The head-cams are in high demand, and the children are enjoying experimenting with their movement around the playground while they are recording. When they are playing with each other the children sometimes forget about the camera, but it can sometimes be the thing that brings them together. The cameras are clearly becoming part of the children’s play, as well as a way of sharing how they play.

With only a few sessions left we are talking about our ideas for the edit of the film and are looking forward to the screenings at Somerstown Adventure Playground in Portsmouth (29 October 2013), and Somerville Adventure Playground in London (30 October 2013).
