Filmmaking & Media Skills for 16-19 Year Old's
APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED FOR OUR 2023 COURSE
WHAT IS GET DIGITAL?
GET DIGITAL is a FREE filmmaking short course for young people aged (16 – 19 year-olds or up to 25yrs SEND).
In 2023 we’ll be learning filmmaking skills before creating a short film! This is a month-long course taking place on Wednesdays from 11am – 4pm throughout August.
No previous experience is necessary.
Participants get to learn & try different crew roles as part of this course in a safe and supported environment.
To give you an idea of what you could make, watch the video below – short film Shock Jock is a comedy-thriller about a DJ who resorts to controversy to get much-needed higher ratings!
Shock Jock has since been submitted into film festivals around the world and was recently screened at Canada’s Student World Impact Film Festival (SWIFF 2023)!

WHY TAKE PART?
Designed to build up your confidence and technical skills through filmmaking it’s led by fantastic professional artists and filmmakers. Get Digital has been successfully running for the last five years, working with young people from all across Barrow and South Furness.
You’ll learn brand new skills in filmmaking & creative digital media (or build up any existing ones).
No previous experience necessary! Just a passion to learn & a willingness to be involved!
Past projects have tackled a variety of different subjects, as students use the medium of film to explore issues young people face around homelessness, mental health, hate crime and autism awareness. Over the past few years Get Digi has brought together young people so we can help empower each other as a team and co-create great ideas and collaborations to produce inspiring short films!
