Since leaving the Helen Hamlyn Research Centre in 2002, Marie Lenclos has pursued her career as a documentary film maker.
Marie makes short films on issues of education, childcare and social inclusion, and the urban environment. Her work is always constructed around the ‘users’, as she firmly believes in the strength of individuals’ stories to communicate about such issues.
Some of her most recent projects:
City Kids Kids’ City, 2006. A collaboration with an RCA Architecture project, this short film follows a bunch of kids into their discovery of the peculiar world of the City of London. The fluidity of their movements, and the rapidity and creativity of their games contrast with the straight lines and monochromatic ambiance of the built environment. Interviews give an insight into their perception of this foreign and distant world and their interpretation of the space.
Every Parent Matters, 2006. A good practice video where Hackney parents and Early Years providers express their views on the importance of parental involvement in children’s learning during the pre-school years. Commissioned by the Education Authority of the Borough of Hackney to be distributed to service providers in the area and beyond.
Parenting with multiples in mind, 2005. An insight into the parenting skills and challenges experienced by six families with twins or triplets. This video is currently used nationally as a support for parenting classes aimed at bringing support to families with pre-school multiples.
Marie Lenclos’ clients include Ash Sakula Architects, Sure Start, The Learning Trust, The Mayor of London, The Daycare Trust, and Tamba (Twins and Multiples Births Association).
