We deliver filmmaking workshops to groups, in a broad range of settings, providing the opportunity for participants to learn new digital skills. Participants are empowered to share experiences, thoughts and views through the powerful medium of film. Filmmaking workshops will enable those taking part to build their confidence, learn new communication skills and give them the opportunity to share their voice with peers and the wider community.
A perfect project to attract funding
Film is an excellent way of empowering people, building confidence and creating material that has a lasting impact. We have worked with several organisations and funders who welcome innovative workshop projects that use film.
Workshop groups are naturally made up of people with mixed abilities and sometimes with a range of support needs.
To ensure that individual needs are met and that everyone fulfils their desired outcomes, the workshops we deliver are flexible, hands on and practical. Participants are supported to develop their own ideas, thinking about how best to ‘tell their stories’ and then planning shots they want. After that they learn as they go along, working through their plans, incorporating the techniques and working at the necessary pace.
Participants reach their full potential by identifying which aspect of filmmaking draws on their strengths, then developing those skills to be used within the team when filmmaking. People feel their confidence grow as their new skills are put into practice.
