TAKING ACTION! CRAFTING FUTURES WITH FILM
"Taking Action" took part over six months and was a creative film-making project for young people aged 8-18 in and around Stoke-on-Trent.
Led by Writer/Director Patrick McConnell & Actor/Producer Lynne Payne, a group of young people learnt and developed skills in film making, through a series of practical workshops. They also had the exciting opportunity of being on the set of a professional film which was shot in Stoke-on-Trent and the Staffordshire Moorlands, taking on various roles from behind the scenes, acting within the film itself and taking charge of the making of a "behind the scenes" short documentary.
The project began in Spring 2019 and the young people are currently working on editing together their clips. It will culminate in a sharing of the young peoples' work.
