Four of our team members had the pleasure of running a film workshop with a group of talented children & young adults with Birmingham Children's Trust!
In the ever-evolving landscape of education and creativity, providing young people with opportunities to explore diverse forms of self-expression is crucial. One such approach is to organise a 'mini film workshop' within the framework of the Children's Trust, aimed at empowering young minds and fostering a love for storytelling through the lens. So, we did just this - and had a great time while doing so, too!
In order to deliver a genuinely engaging session, our team created a lesson plan that focused on getting stuck in with hands-on filming; focusing on creativity of concept. Here, we invited the fantastic young people involved to utilise both their phones & various aspects of our in-house kit to create mini videos to music and AI-generated backdrops of their choice.
We created an environment where our participants felt safe, encouraged, and inspired. Our team of filmmakers, all of whom are experienced in working with young minds, brought their own valuable insights and expertise to the workshop.
The afternoon ended up being a blast! Splitting into groups, assigning roles (Camera Ops and Talent), and getting stuck in; we created a memorable 'mini film school' workshop for all involved.
We have had the pleasure of working with Birmingham Children's Trust on animations, interviews, and more. We wanted to give back in any way we could - a huge thank you to Jake and the Team for having us over for the afternoon, we had a fabulous time!
A film workshop for goes beyond conventional learning, offering an immersive experience that combines creativity, technology, and collaboration. If this is something that interests you, do not hesitate to get in touch! One of our team would be happy to have a chat about how we can help.
