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 (or build up any existing ones) in: 

  • Sound
  • Cinematography
  • Script Development
  • Production Design
  • Lighting & more!

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!
