PEOPLE IN THE NEWS: Carl Bradshaw on his latest screen role + Jenny Jenny ventures into early-childhood education

LABOUR OF LOVE: Having officially opened its doors on Feb. 4, Small Treasures is a new St. Andrew-based pre-school and aftercare service founded by media darling Jennifer ‘Jenny Jenny’ Small, who is also a new mom. “I am a trained teacher so there are certain things that I am looking for in an institution. I looked around and there are too many things that I wanted and didn't see.” The Lady Musgrave Road-based property caters to children from three months old to four years old from 6:00 am to 2:00 pm daily. However, the aftercare programme accommodates children as old as 12 years old, between the hours of 2:00 pm and 8:00 pm. In addition to academics, the children are taught everything from speech and Spanish to dance and drumming and art and craft. 

THE SKIN I’M IN: “He is more like a scientist who sees things in advance. He has certain powers,” veteran screen actor Carl Bradshaw says of his latest role as a seer in The Skin, a new horror thriller out of Antigua. The new film, Bradshaw says, allows him to stretch as an actor. “As far as I am concerned I am diverse, I started out in comedy, but if you remember, Smile Orange was originally a stage play before it became a film.” Produced by Hama Films Antigua, The Skin (about a young couple on the verge of losing their home) has so far been shown across the region. Last weekend, it had two screenings in New York. “I really liked the feedback from the industry folks, it was honest and constructive. A pre-screening outside of Antigua was the best thing we ever did,” says executive producer Mitzi Allen. Up next for Bradshaw is Jamaica from the Eyes of Carl Bradshaw, a documentary he hopes to complete in 2014.
