Creative Film Workshops
We run creative film workshops for children aged 8-16 years of age. These workshops are designed to give children an insight into the creative world of film making, inspiring them and helping them to build confidence. They get the chance to experience what it is like to be a director, a camera operator and being part of a film crew. We also incorporate drama games, which make the workshops lively and fun. The workshops conclude with the children making a short film of a story they concieve and we also produce an edited highlights video of the day for them to keep.
