From structured week to week music or filmmaking workshops to three day film production masterclasses. We at PAC-CIC take all students KS1 to 4 through the process of filmmaking tapping into the curriculum from idea to exhibition. Through a hands on approach the students not only develop technical skills in the art of film but also build self confidence and learn to work effectively as part of a team.

Here at PAC-CIC we are experienced in working with young people with special educational needs. We build working relationships with the participants while teaching core filmmaking skills such as scriptwriting, storyboarding, acting, camera operation and video editing. Besides creative aspects participants develop social and communication skills whilst working as part of a team to achieve an end product. Previous structured workshops have led to fun doctor who spin offs, zombie-comedies, current affair news shows and issue based films on subjects such as bullying.
Please get in touch to see how we can tailor a workshop programme to fit your groups needs.

Our team of artists and qualified youth workers are all have enhanced DBS checks and with a proven track record of delivering center based music and filmmaking workshops to youth and community groups. We encourage participants to creatively discuss issues that impact their lives and help them tell their story digitally. Previous topics have been subjects such as organised crime, healthy relationships and digital safety. Workshop structures can be tailored from a one hour activity to a 16 week programme of workshops. We encourage participants to exhibit their final work at the end of the programme.

Our issue-based film projects always start with an educational element. We provide participants with up-to-date information on the subject we are covering. Recent topics have included Online safety and sexting, Loan-sharks, Organised Crime, Substance mis-use, CSE, Healthy Relationships and Restorative Justice.
Participants are supported through the filmmaking process planning and producing the film. Roles and responsibilities are allocated based on the strengths and wishes of the individual. It is our hope to highlight the creative industries as a realistic source of employment as well as developing such transferrable skills as literacy, teamwork, project planning, effective communication and confident public speaking.
It is important for the participants to have a role in showcasing their work in terms of their own personal self-esteem but also to increase the effectiveness of the project as a tool to peer educate. Children listen to people who look like them and sound like them. A positive message delivered by peers is extremely powerful.
