Ever wanted to try filmmaking with your youth group but didn’t know where to start?
This online resource from Garry McHugh, Director of the Young Irish Film Makers, will help you facilitate an introductory workshop in filmmaking and support the young people you work with on the creative path to making their first short film.
Making a film or piece of video content is a fantastic creative process which can engage even a very mixed group of young people in working towards a united goal. Through engagement with the filmmaking process, young people can find their voice, tell their story and explore creative ways to express themselves through the medium. Finally, they get to exhibit their work to each other, their families or friends at a premiere or to a wider audience at a youth film festival. A huge validation of their efforts and acknowledgement of their creative teamwork!
