Hello we are New Focus a group of young people from Bradford who work with Impressions Gallery to develop projects that inspire and engage people from across the city.

We are a mix of young people from different backgrounds who all live in Bradford; we all work together to develop projects that connect photography and Bradford. New Focus began in 2012 and over the past 3 years we have produced 4 films, run a range of exciting events, created a dedicated blog and taken part Changing Bradford a major exhibition and book.

This year we want to create a 20 minute film called Bradford Video Portraits. We want to meet people from all over Bradford and hear funny stories and truthful accounts on what it means to live in Bradford today. The film hopes to capture the community spirit and life in Bradford in an honest yet witty style.

Bradford Video Portraits is inspired by the major exhibition extra {ordinary} Photographs of Britain by The Caravan Gallery. Made in hundreds of locations across the UK in the last 15 years, extra{ordinary} offers an insight into the reality and surreality of everyday life in 21st century Britain. The exhibition is currently touring across the UK and will be shown at Impressions Gallery from the 29 May to 29 August 2015.

If we reach our target of £500 we have some really exciting plans for Bradford Video Portraits. The film will be shown in a variety of places across the city including Impressions Gallery, Bradford Big Screen, Fuse Art Space, and every day locations such as Oastler Market.

How can you help

You can make a difference by pledging from just £3.00 to help us bring Bradford Video Portraits to life. Impressions Gallery has already donated £500 towards the project and the University of Bradford are providing professional film equipment to support the making of the film.

We now need to raise £500 to fund the production of our video. These funds will be used to make sure we can get out and meet lots of people in different places across Bradford.

Please help us reach our target of £500 by donating as much as you can afford and help us to reach as many people as possible by simply sharing the link to this page.

Trust us it will be better then reality TV!
