Filmmaking for youth and community groups

I run training, workshops and filmmaking projects for youth and community groups in the UK and beyond.

Over Summer 2015 I worked with five groups of young people in the East and South-east of England on film projects for Kids in Museums. They used my pro camcorders and editing software to make training films showing how museums and galleries could be made more teen-friendly.

I’ve worked in English and Welsh around Wales, including workshops with hard-to-reach learners and NEET groups as part of the Reach the Heights programme.

I can bring my own equipment – pro or amateur – or use yours.

Training for staff and volunteers

This training will show you how to run filmmaking activities that are engaging, manageable and purposeful.

  • Introductory activities
  • Planning and organising filmmaking activities
  • Teaching the essentials of filmmaking
  • The filmmaking process
  • Films to use for inspiration

Workshops and projects for groups

I run filmmaking activities with groups, ranging from short hands-on taster sessions in filming and editing, to longer activities and filmmaking projects. I can work with you to devise projects that deal with specific needs and issues. Accreditation available (see below).


I have developed an Agored Cymru Level 1 unit, Create a Video Production, which is available on multi-day workshops. My staff training can enable you to offer this course to your users. I also offer a Level 2 Filmmaking tutor course.

I can also offer Bronze and Silver Arts Award accreditation.
