Sheffield is a city and metropolitan borough of South Yorkshire, England. Its name derives from the River Sheaf, which runs through the city. Historically a part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, and partly Derbyshire, the city has grown from its largely industrial roots to encompass a wider economic base.

The population of the City of Sheffield is 534,500 and it is one of the eight largest regional English cities that make up England.

As such, Sheffield Council commissioned a film to be produced in association with High Storrs School about what the area was like, and how it is seen now. The brief was unique as it required the input from everyone in society, including young people, professional sports persons, world record holders, city planners, artists and people of Sheffield.

Principle photography lasted for 7 days, and relied on a small professional crew working alongside a line producer from Pro Consultancy and a small team of students from High Storrs School.

The brief was to explore the culture of the city from a young persons point of view, and illustrate the changes that Sheffield has undergone. The focus however was to be on the new, positive side of the steel city while giving all groups equal representation.
