Filmmaking is an engaging technique for teaching young people cross-curricular topics and to develop teamwork and real-life skills. This approach will help you to take your club members on an exciting journey to collaboratively create their own short film. By watching several youth-made short live action films and completing engaging activities, they'll learn to plan their story, character and setting.
The Your Film Club, Your Way: Filmmaking resource will show you the key areas to consider when creating a film and teach learners how to edit and evaluate their work.
Please note that throughout this resource, there are references made to Into Film's mini-filmmaking guides in order to support these activities.
