Workshops and Resources

WORKSHOPS

We offer workshops to any High School, with a Gaelic Department or with Gaelic-speaking pupils. All you need to do is contact us and book your slot. Please do this early as the calendar can get very busy. 

Basic Workshop structure:  A day of filming and a day of editing is offered to every school. We can also offer story-development sessions to schools a fortnigth or three weeks before the filming day, to leave plenty time to organise costumes, props, locations and any other additional requirements before their filming day.

Group size: The ideal group size for the FilmG workshops is 10 pupils. We appreciate that due to class sizes this can sometimes be difficult, and will therefore allow up to a maximum of 15 pupils per group, but it should be taken into consideration that groups of this size are more difficult to work with in the short time we have for filming.

Contact The FilmG Team to book your place or for more information about the workshops. 

RESOURCES

We have created a variety of resources for young filmmakers. The schools workbook gets pupils thinking about their idea, script and the general planning of the film, and will be sent to any school or group taking part in the project. This year we’re incorporating some virtual teaching too!

Lesson plans can also be downloaded here following the summer holidays and they’ll guide you through the film planning process in four fun lessons.

FilmG have also prepared consent forms which should be sent out to parents and guardians before filming and sent on to the FilmG office.
