Take A Shot - Home Education classes/groups

Not all young people are educated in mainstream schools. This course is run for such a group, aged 10 to 13 years.
During this 14 week media production workshop. Young learners develop skills in Communication, Planning, Team building and Time management.

 Learners will be introduced to using basic video camera set ups , writing, storyboarding, directing filming, and acting.

 They will explore this through visual story telling where they will produce  :
1) Commercial
2) Trailer for a film or TV show - Genre horror, Sc-Fi, Comedy, Detective etc
3) Film review show (they interview each other)
4) Short drama scene/sequence.

This is being run with Cornerstone Arts Centre.
Other variations on this workshops  can be developed with parents. On-line tutorials, set video assignments, with set feedback on projects and productions.

A Space of Our Own

During the summer I ran a number of video workshops as part of the 'Taking Part' scheme. These were with young people from Carterton youth group /Airplay which is supported by the RAF Benevolent Fund and 4Children. The video workshops enabled the young people to make a campaign film. This explored the desire to have a space, club, place, of their own. The final video was shown at Carterton Town Council.
