Watch our short film above to see an eclectic mix of the films and visuals OSBD has made over the years.


OSBD (one small barking dog) began its life within a Church based urban youth work setting helping young people engage with their peers around issues they wanted to explore: this was back in 1994 when we still shot videos on VHS and edited with 2 VHS recorders linked together!
In 2001 OSBD became a charity after many years of developing its work and a whole new era began with “ the dog” as it had become known helping develop and create many youth based resources around the world both on VHS/DVD and very early on as downloads on line: we have made films as far afield as the Ukraine /Peru and Glasgow!
In 2007 OSBD began taking a well earned nap as the core creative team involved developed some other larger film projects through blue hippo media, a new commercial film production company they had set up: blue hippo is a key partner in helping develop OSBD new future.


2011/12 sees the birth of a new season in the life of OSBD: ” the old dog has new tricks” as some have said! we want to be involved in helping create dialogue around spirituality and  emerging culture from both a Christian / multi and no faith perspective. We will be developing some key films and digital content including Apps alongside other new and established emerging culture partners and individuals:

Tim’s Dendy ( OSBD’s permanent artist in residence) latest meditation film on the summer riots of 2011 can be seen on our FB site. the key for us is involvement and engagement: we want to work with  / support and help develop new and established artists and thinkers, so get involved in the dialogue and get in touch with ideas or ways we can help or collaborate.
