COOKE'S CREW

ONLINE Filmmaking workshops for 11-15's

FREE | Sessions run weekly on Mon / Tue

Cooke’s Crew is now ONLINE! 

A creative rolling filmmaking course for 11-15yr olds. It gives up to 15 young people the chance to work (from home) in a more holistic way with professional filmmakers to get hands-on experience in the different processes of making a film in a variety of differing and experimental ways – Learn ideas generation and scriptwriting to production processes, set design, camera techniques for mobile devices, lighting and sound design and editing. 

 

WORKSHOPS ARE NOW ONLINE ONLY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

  • Please be aware you will need some form of device to access the internet / be online*

  • All staff have enhanced-level DBS checks & have completed thorough safeguarding training.

*Please contact us if this is not possible & we’ll see what we can do to help!

Cooke’s Crew has been running for over 6 years now and hopes to return to physical sessions once it is safe to do so. Cooke’s Crew is entirely free and open to young residents of the Barrow particularly in the wards of Ormsgill, Walney South, Hindpool, Central, Barrow Island & Risedale and geared towards those who don’t usually take up out-of-school learning opportunities.

The project is important as independent think tank DotEveryone identified people in Barrow as being Highly Likely to experience digital exclusion. Although young people inherently learn digital skills through using social media, computer games and access at school, in areas of social deprivation this does not translate to acquiring essential skills and knowledge about how to use technology productively – to improve life chances and to access job opportunities.

Check out our young people’s work below – compiled from their online involvement in April 2020!

“I’m incredibly excited for this year’s Cooke’s crew, it’s always a brilliant project but this year we want to step things up a bit. Each workshop we will be learning a brand new digital skill, the participants will then go on to choose what area they want to continue with. We will be doing skills workshops that I would have loved to have done as a young person”.
