Film Making Workshops and School Incursions

We love to share our passion for filmmaking and animation with children, to show them new techniques and give them hands on experience, but most importantly to give them skills they can continue to use at home or school with their own cameras or iPads. There is nothing better than seeing them learn a new thing and then put it into practice so they can continue using it long after our workshops or incursions are over. Our filmmaking and animation workshops also extend their transferable skills, such as planning, organisation, problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration and awareness of the bigger picture, as well as attention to detail. We make it easy to use film making in the classroom and video technology across the curriculum, and turn screen time into a learning experience.

Film Making and Animation Workshops
