Bridging The Gap

Tom Deveson

Teenagers and parents can appear alien to one another. Bridging The Gap, a video made with a humorous documentary touch, could help with clarification. It's a 12-minute animation in which the two sets of opponents find they have more in common than they thought. It gives substance to words such as "non-judgmental" and "communication". Bridging the Gap costs pound;40 or can be hired for pound;10 from Leeds Animation Workshop, 45 Bayswater Row, Leeds LS8 5LF. Telfax: 0113 248 4997. Email: law@leedsanimation.demon.
