Filmmaking & Media Skills for 16-19 Year Old's
GET DIGITAL provides free training in filmmaking and creative digital media for young people aged 16-19 in the creative surroundings of Cooke’s Studios.
Designed to build confidence and technical skills in an inclusive setting, it’s led by professional artists and filmmakers.
Whilst it’s previous been run as an annual 10wk course, we’re hoping to return again in 2020 with a year-round programme of activities!

Visuals and performance created by Get Digital participants aged 16-19 through Signal Film and Media in Barrow-in-Furness. Poem based on a poem by MWhatley (‘Sofa-Surfing’) in partnership of Nightstop Cumbria and DePaul UK. Film launched 23 May 2019.
In January, Get Digital students had the unique opportunity to create a short film for Cumbria Hate Crime Awareness Week (5-11th Feb 2019). Over three days they learned about script writing, animation, special effects, camera and lighting. The film was created with a theme of Autism Awareness & was shared widely online to raise awareness of Hate Crime.
This project took place from 16-19th January and was funded by Cumbria Police Crime Commissioner, Peter McCall for Cumbria Police.
