“Pete from Squeaky Pedal filmed our charity 10K race in Victoria Park, London. They were an absolute pleasure to work with; great at giving suggestions when speaking to the camera in a really nice way so you didn’t feel so self-conscious, very professional and endeavoured to make a great quality film. We will certainly be working with him again in near the future.”

Their brave and imaginative use of multiple forms of media brought a compelling and fascinating story to life – winning the ‘Best Use of Archive Award’ at the Imperial War Museum Film Festival.”
