Life.... after Street Life 

The latest film from Acting on Impulse, an associated ministry of Altrincham Baptist Church which works with socially excluded people, has launched

‘Life After Street Life’ follows the gang of characters from the homeless community who featured in last year’s music video ‘Streetlife.’ A series of four episodes shot in documentary style, it also features Coronation Street characters Sophie Webster (Brooke Vincent) and Maddie Heath (Amy Kelly).

Streetlife300The film saw the actors working for five days with professionals in locations around Salford, Manchester and Trafford.

It was directed by CBeebies’ Joe Chambers, written by Drew Ballantyne and produced by Acting on Impulse founder, and member of Altrincham Baptist Church, Lauren Pouchly.

The film was premiered on Friday night (18 July) in front of 200 people at the Z-arts theatre in Hulme and the first episode is now available on Youtube.

Like previous Acting on Impulse productions, the characters and storyline were developed through workshops and reflect the actors’ real experiences.

Lauren, who set up Acting on Impulse in 2007 with the aim of giving homeless and marginalised people a voice through film and theatre, said the latest project had been 'an amazing adventure' for the actors.

'They’ve worked through gales, rain and freezing cold like complete troupers.

'They’ve travelled to locations all over the city and worked from early to late, standing for hours. There was no script to prepare them for the crazy things that happened to them each day and we couldn’t be prouder of the end result.'

A new episode will be released on Youtube each Friday. In addition to Life After Street Life, Acting on Impulse has now produced three short films, two stage productions and a music video, which has received more than 67,000 views on Youtube.
