All film production equipment and professional facilitators are supplied by the Media Resource Centre (MRC) and the final films can be privately screened for family at the week’s end.

CUTTING TO THE BEAT // TEENS WORKSHOP

We all have stories about the events, people and places in our lives. Digital stories are short, personal multimedia tales told from the heart and anyone can make them. The stories will screen as shorts before the Seniors on Screen program and will find an online home on our YouTube channel. This much-loved workshop invariably sells out, so book early.

In collaboration with Carclew Youth Arts, we are running our first music video workshop. Teams will come up with a concept, storyboard, act, film and edit a music video to their chosen song. Editing is crucial part of making music videos, and in this great course students will learn the value of cutting to the beat.
