September 2013 — Present
I'm currently running a project that I started developing a little while ago, shoothere, but was waiting for the right time to launch due to it's scale in terms of time and funding. Shoothere provides children aged between 11 and 14 storytelling and filmmaking training at their schools as well as access to proffesional equipment. After their training, the children are given a regional challenge to test out their new skills alongside other schools in the area.
The project is being funded and supported by boomsatsuma, a bristol based youth arts program, b-creative and the Arts Council, and we're working with various schools in the Bristol area, with around 100 kids. In March, the project will come to a close with a fantastic screening of the short films and awards ceremony for the best. Email me if you want to know more.
