GRASSROOTS PROJECTS

 

PROFESSIONAL FILM PRODUCTION

For small-scale and community-based projects, thinking about video and photography is either planned for - or left until the last minute.  

In either case, we're able to 'bolt-on' high quality content to your project.  If you're an early-bird, we can even feature in your funding bid as content delivery partners.  Demonstrating partnerships bodes well for funding applications - particularly where partners have a rock solid track-record for working with projects like yours.

INCREASING PARTICIPATION 

We can devise workshops that complement the core project activity - but which promote participation in all areas of media content production.  Within your cohort of participants could be budding camera-operators, directors, presenters actors and journalists.

 

SCHOOLS & COLLEGES

 

PROFESSIONAL FILM PRODUCTION

We make films showcasing innovative projects, sporting or community events, performances and even construction projects with schools across the UK.  This type of content enhances the online experience for prospective parents and also highlights key activities, staff members and outreach.

INCREASING PARTICIPATION 

Our work with KS1, KS2 and KS3 students, NEET's, BTEC and HND students spans 9 years.  We also work with special needs groups - including adults and children with learning difficulties.  Through innovative, hands-on workshops, courses and mentoring, we've helped learners gain confidence in working with media, whilst at the same time empowering teaching staff to get the most out of existing resources.  Participants also get to showcase their content creations to peers, parents and funders - online or presented live (at school).

We also offer schools the opportunity to see what they can get from their existing equipment.  In a one day workshop, we empower teachers to squeeze every ounce out of their investment in cameras, computers and software.


TRAINEESHIPS & APPRENTICESHIPS

 

PROFESSIONAL FILM PRODUCTION

Our films have enabled organisations including BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra, BT Sport, Broadspeed and London Legacy Development Corporation to showcase the great work they do - helping people to progress in their chosen career.  

INCREASING PARTICIPATION 

We can help you turn your long-list into a shortlist.  Over 2 to 5 days, we can put your candidates through their paces and evaluate suitability for an apprenticeship, internship or job vacancy.  These course provide opportunities for participants to gain valuable skills, boost their confidence and ultimately better represent themselves at interview.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT/ADULT LEARNING
 

PROFESSIONAL FILM PRODUCTION

We've produced content celebrating intergenerational mass-participation projects for BBC's Strictly Come Dancing, Dance Woking's Party in the Park, The Challenge Network and other organisations.  These films are used to evaluate, recruit and celebrate the achievements of both participants and organisers.

INCREASING PARTICIPATION 

Creative media is a popular CPD option.  It's fun, promotes communication and empowers teams to produce video and photographic content in-house.  We've trained teachers, BBC staff, marketing departments and business owners - in everything from improving smartphone photography to high end video production, on-site or on location.
