We offer workshops to schools or youth groups who would like to make a film. All you need to do is contact us and book your slot. Please do this early as the calendar can get very busy.
Basic Workshop structure: A two-hour story development workshop followed around two weeks later by a day of filming and a day of editing. The two-week gap is given to allow each group the time to finish their script and organise costumes, props, locations and any other additional requirements before their filming day.
Group size: The ideal group size for the FilmG workshops is 10 pupils. We appreciate that due to class sizes this can sometimes be difficult, and will therefore allow up to a maximum of 15 pupils per group, but it should be taken into consideration that groups of this size are more difficult to work with in the short time we have for filming.
Contact The FilmG Team to book your place or for more information about the workshops.
FilmG have created a variety of resources for young filmmakers who would like to make a Gaelic film. The workbook gets pupils thinking about their idea, script and the general planning the film and will be sent to any school or group taking part in the project.
Lesson plans can also be downloaded here and they’ll guide the teacher through the film planning process in three fun and simple lessons.
FilmG have also prepared consent forms which should be sent out to parents and guardians before filming.
