The Story...

90 Years. For almost a century, a coal mine stood next to the village of Edwinstowe. The pit closed in 2015, ending coal-mining in Nottinghamshire. However, this is only the beginning of our story. Change is afoot in the village of Edwinstowe. And yet the village is not alone in having to adapt to change. What is going on at Edwinstowe is a microcosm of what is happening all over the western world. A small community is having to forge a new identity in the post-industrial age.

We are six dedicated and passionate Film & Television Production students in our final year at the University of York. Having worked on a variety of creative projects, we have now joined forces to bring our documentary, Embers, to life.

The people behind Embers...

  • Producer: Errika Zacharopoulou
  • Director: Daniel Saunders
  • Writer | Researcher: Milo Diebel
  • Director of Photography: Matt Bohun
  • Sound Recordist | Sound Designer: Ed Netherton
  • Editor: Matt Edwards

The Logistics...

All contributions to Embers bring us closer to our goal: to bring this community to life onscreen. But we still need your help. Every donation, however small, enables us to make Embers an even greater experience.

An estimated budget breakdown:

  • Travel & Transport: £420.00
  • Accommodation: £504.00
