By now, you’ve probably seen the Disney-Pixar-Marvel adaptation of the 2007 school transportation movie Groome.
And if you haven’t seen it yet, you should watch it now.
The film is based on a real-life story of an Australian school bus driver, Paul Groome, who is able to get people out of school in less than 10 minutes by using his mind.
And Groome himself has gone on record saying that the story is an accurate depiction of what it’s like to ride a school transport.
The school bus in Groome’s film, however, is not actually his own.
Instead, it’s a vehicle from a fictional school called St. Joseph’s Academy, based on an actual boarding school for girls in the UK.
The movie is the brainchild of former film producer and filmmaker Peter Groome (who also wrote and directed the 2008 Academy Award-nominated film A Wrinkle in Time, which was based on his own experience as a student in an Australian boarding school), and his team at the British production company BFI, who are also behind a number of other films.
The Groome team have created a school transportation film that takes place in the real world, which is why it’s called Groome Transport.
It’s the first film that the group has worked on with a real school, and they’ve been working on the project since 2011.
“We wanted to make something that was authentic and that felt real and was grounded in the facts,” said Groome during a recent interview with BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire.
“We wanted it to feel like a real, honest school bus.”
“I love it,” he added.
“It’s so different to anything that I’ve done before.
I feel so good.
It feels real and it’s going to have the life of a film.
It will look good and look like a film.”
While Groome and the BFI team have worked with schools in Australia and the United States to make the film, it was a project they wanted to tackle in their own backyard, which explains why they chose to make Groome the driving force behind the project.
“It’s the way we wanted to approach it,” Groome said.
“There’s a lot of things that we wanted the kids to do, and a lot that we want to change.”
What makes Groome transport special is that it’s not just a film about the bus driver’s journey to and from school, but also a film that addresses issues that students have with school transportation.
“I think we want the school to be a place where we’re all equal,” Groom said.
“That means that every kid in our schools should feel safe and welcomed.
That means that no kid should feel they’re less than a student.
That’s why we’ve chosen to focus on how the school bus works, and we’ve made sure that we have an understanding of how it’s supposed to be used.””
It feels like a good movie,” Groomes co-director of the film said.
The movie is currently being shot in a number in the U.K., Australia, and the U,S.
Groome says the project will also explore how school transport can be changed to make it more accessible for students, and how to make school transport more equitable.
“School transport is so important, and there’s so much that needs to change to make schools more accessible,” he said.
Groome added that he hopes the film will encourage other filmmakers to explore the same topics.
“There’s so many different ways of doing things that are so hard to do,” he explained.
“I’m really excited about this movie and the ideas that we’ve got.”
