The theme of this project is ‘Making a bigger difference together’, so young people will be encouraged to show how they make a difference to inspire others.
Through our Video Production Training, young people will learn how to capture events and experiences. The learners will develop a variety of skills including narrative, filmic and stylistic abilities. They will also gain wider skills such as teamwork, and problem solving.
The training will include:
– Film Theory: Types of films, shoots, angles, composition rules, lighting, and sound.
– Pre-production workshop: Generate ideas and discuss a project with young people, including scriptwriting and storyboarding their own video.
– Film making session: Young people will shoot some footage following their storyboard.
– Post-Production workshop: Young people will edit the footage and add elements such as music, text, and logos.
A number of training sessions are being organised all across the country, ensuring good coverage of South East, South West, Mid and North Wales. Welcoming people from different backgrounds and experiences in our training is important for us to give a voice to everyone.
We will then design, deliver and host an Online Film Festival, in partnership with some of the young people involved in the project. The videos created during the training will all be showcased at the Online Film Festival, which will receive national-wide social media coverage.
A panel of professional video makers will select the 5 best videos to be showcased at the gofod3 festival in March 2020.
