Research has shown, that documentaries can empower young people to grow without restraint as people. Teamwork, critical thinking, creativity, autonomy, patience, and commitment are aspects that working in the production of audiovisual works can stimulate growth in for a young person. This programme will allow young people to develop these skills. Above all, this programme will give them the opportunity to say what’s on their mind and believe in the possibility of change.

To create a solid impact chain, it is primordial to document the developments and different steps of the creative process of these youths. By doing so, we will be able to promote this project with the hope of inspiring different communities and organisms. Those in front of the documentary camera will also experience the feeling of contributing to the cause, which will make them feel more socially involved.

We will train 15 young people a cohort and take them on an 8 week programme to design a documentary episode. We will train them and develop their skills. We will take them on a trip with industry experts and at the end of the programme we will offer them an accredited certificate and a professional portfolio to show potential employers. We aim to train 60 to 100 16-24 years olds a year on the filmmaking industry. 

This is programmes is on-going all year round. Sign up today!
