Kick Ash Dudley NHS PCT – Infectious Project
Working with 20 NEET young people (Not in Education, Employment or Training), Supatrax planned, filmed and edited a short film about the social effects of smoking. The young people created the concept that smoking turns you into a 'Social Zombie'.
These young people were not engaged in 'normal' training and education but Supatrax had the young people fully involved, putting on face paints, make up, making props and filming for the video. Below is the final video:

High Arcal School - Dudley West Midlands
High Arcal is an Ofsted 'Outstanding' rated comprehensive secondary school in Dudley. There was a core of pupils who were disrupting lessons and were disengaged. Supatrax were able to engage the pupils in a MC, DJ and video production course lasting 10 sessions. This concluded with a DJ set being played in front of the whole school as they participated in a sponsored walk round the school premises to raise money for charity. MC Hitman lead the MC workshops.
Throughout the school we found singers, rappers, DJs, beatboxers and dancers who all got involved. For some it was the first time people had ever been recorded and we are now in regular contact via Twitter with some students have chosen to choose a career in music production after completed the Supatrax course.
The High Arcal Head Teacher commented:
"Reinforces my deeply held conviction for many years that a creative and innovative approach to the CURRICULUM is the most important action schools can take to improve students' life chances. I hope we can all continue to come up with imaginative ways to lock students in to learning and inspire them to achieve."
