Pack Up Your Troubles by Pete Lloyd

Pete Lloyd

Pete Lloyd made his film at the digital stories course that was held at Stoke Lodge.

He writes: One of the themes of the film is to reflect on the role and impact of conflict from the perspective of my family.  What I’ve really enjoyed about the course is the opportunity to find out more about my family history and to really bring it to life through the use of film. The opportunity to learn new techniques and approaches to film making has been great too!!
