Media Makers 2

Our second Media Makers group have been having loads of fun working with film makers to create their own newsreels, using a mix of location filming and multi-camera studio shoots.

Everyone’s had the chance to try all aspects of production and then spend more time on the thing they like doing best which could be scripting, presenting in front of the camera, camera work, and directing or vision mixing.

Young people from our first Media Makers group who took part in the filmed consultation project in the summer have stayed on as Media Maker Leads to support those new to the project and the project leaders are really grateful to them for all the help they’re able to give.

We’re hoping to run community based themed taster workshops on Saturdays early next year so watch this space if you want to get involved.

Runs, jumps, flies

Run, jump, fly

October half term we held an Introduction to Parkour session in Harding’s Park. Young people came along and had tuition from two amazing tutors and were soon flying through the air, jumping over ‘horses’ and making the most of the physical environment including play frames and boulders.

The day was open to everyone and the tutors who teach parkour across the south west were brilliant at working with young people of all ages. Zoe and Bekah were on hand to manage the event and Katie, one of our star Media Makers came along to the film event.

Feedback was very positive and everyone wanted to know when the team would be back – the answer is watch this space! It’s a bit wet and wild at the moment but as the weather improves in the spring we hope to be able to run more.
