Tommy Code was a work based learning programme that gave a group of young people the opportunity to write, direct, film and edit an industry standard short story/teaser for an idea for a feature film working with professional filmmakers from The Broadway and Donkeystone Films. The young people also worked with a professional orchestra - ‘Sinfonia Viva’ - to compose and play on the atmospheric soundtrack to the film and were also mentored by record producer Joe Buddha to record and mix the track. The bedroom set featured in the piece was also designed and built in the small studio inside the Broadway Cinema, Nottingham by some of the young people involved who were mentored by an interior architecture graduate after extensive historical research. The whole piece was researched and written with a whole back story to the characters and served as an inspirational starting point for this literacy based project. The two main characters in the film were played by first time actors Oliver Warrington and Liam Kemmitt who came to be acting as participants in previous Greenshoots project DIVERSE.
