Thames Firestarters follows Mike Jones and his team as they work to put on the awe-inspiring fireworks display that closes the Thames Festival each year. The film allows us to glimpse into the mindset and motivation of the people that labour to light up night skies and capture the imagination of crowds of thousands every September. This brilliantly crafted film offers a moving insight into what really goes on behind the scenes of one of London’s most spectacular shows.

This film was made by participants of the BBC Blast Thames Festival Film Residency.
