From October – November I will be working every Tuesday evening (7pm-9pm) at the Old Library Media Centre in Nottinghamshire with 13-19 year olds on a film project. My role as a voluntary team leader means I will be working closely with project manager Ian in helping him try and make the children enthusiastic about filmmaking. In order to do this, I will be trying to keep people interested in what they’re learning about and making sure they understand the importance of team work, but also having the drive to want to succeed individually within their role.
I will be there to offer a helping hand when groups become a little unfocused or need direction, but also as a creative mind to help them see the bigger picture. Mansfield has a lot of places that would be interesting to film so I will be advising them to find these areas instead of diverting to what is straight at their door.
