Previous Projects

GandL Kids Club

5-day filmmaking school for 9 to 12-year-olds from rural South Lanarkshire. The young people wrote and produced the short film ‘Lost and Found’ (as seen on the right). The filmmaking equipment also remained in the community after the project.

Kirkintilloch High School

Students developed a short film exploring the effects of sectarianism on young people, as well as an interactive game as part of a no-smoking campaign.

John Paul Academy

Shakespeare project in which pupils retold the story of Romeo and Juliet in a 5-minute film.

East Dumbartonshire 

Multiple filmmaking courses delivered in 7 schools. This was during study leave periods, where some pupils who were not sitting exams.

Cineclubs

Cineclubs was a partnership with the Glasgow Film Theatre. The 3-year project worked with 12 high schools across Glasgow. The project delivered free cinema to the pupils through monthly curated screenings at the GFT. We also trained teachers to deliver filmmaking clubs in each school, to continue after the programme.

Each school received a camera and editing laptop, as well as training and technical support. The Cineclub in each school made two films each year, which were then screened at a festival at the GFT.
