Film Subjects

Actionwork® now offers a complete film residency package for schools, youth groups and community organisations. We work with your group of teens for a week or a month to help them produce a film about their school, community or issue.

We run the workshop style sessions that are great fun and give the teens hands-on experience in front of and behind the cameras. At the end of each residency we create for you a promotional style professional DVD.

No experience is neccessary. We provide all the equipment and expertise. We can work with you anywhere in the country.
