Homestore Self-Storage, which operates two locations in Suffolk, England, recently served as the backdrop for film-studies projects by students of King Edward VI School, a co-educational secondary school in the civil parish Bury St. Edmunds. Scenes were filmed at the Bury St. Edmunds location on the Anglian Lane Industrial Estate.
“We like to connect with the local community. We believe in helping students to further their education,” said Hana Sculpher, assistant manager of Homestore.
Daniel Bellamy, 17, who lives in the parish, shot a five-minute film at the storage facility using his iPhone. His video follows a man who wakes up delusional and falls in love with a traffic cone, according to the source.
“A lot of the films I really like follow the character’s journey and this structure, like ‘The Shining’ follows Jack’s journey,” he said.
Founded in 1550, King Edward VI School offers a range of academic subjects, including those focused on the arts such as film, dance, drama and music. The film studies class is taught by Liza Ollett.
Homestore also operates a location at 6 Wentworth Road in the Ransomes Europark in Ipswich, England. In addition to business and personal storage, both sites provide archive storage and industrial units, and accept deliveries on behalf of their customers.
