I took a wander through the vaults of my NAS recently and ended up watching through a bunch of old workshop videos – while I have unfortunately produced more workshop material than I ever kept, I am still in possession of some of my favourite videos and animations created by and with young people and thought it was time that some of them had an airing!
Moviedrome was a weekly filmmaking workshop I led for young people at the Hive Music and Media Centre, Shrewsbury from 2004 to 2010 (pre-HD, hence the low resolution). Although I have led numerous other film and animation activities both during and since, those sessions were some of the most fun I ever had running a workshop; the films the participants made still make me chuckle now 🙂
Here is a small selection of some of my favourite videos – the surf guitar track at the beginning and the end is ‘That’s Right’ by Pirato Ketchup, check em out here.
And yes, we did use that dodgy Youtube-ripped clip from ‘Knowing’ twice – we ain’t even sorry.
