Press Gang

Press Gang is a project where children and young people work alongside industry professionals to learn film-making skills and gain an understanding of production.

20th July 2009

The young people will also capture footage from a range of Find Your Talent programmes, including interviewing participants, in order to create an ongoing record of the different strands of Find Your Talent. The aim is for the young people to then share their skills with others coming up through the programme.

Folkestone Film Factory will recruit three groups of four young people, who will then learn about pre-production, image capture, sound, editing and post-production skills. They will be supported to take critical and informed decisions about creative content.

Following the initial Press Gang project a group of eight to 19-year-olds have set up their own independent group 'Shepway Press Gang' to pursue their passion for and interest in film and media. Press Gang Shepway meets every other Saturday at Cafe IT from 12-4pm.
