Pop Up: Film Booth


Young people can take part in a day of our Pop Up: Filmbooth - our immersive and fun introduction to film making and media creation. In a real TV Studio set-up, they will become part of our production team - Director, Camera Operator, Journalist and Sound Engineer. New skills they'll learn include including film making, sound engineering, lighting techniques, interview techniques, oral presentation / public speaking etc. A hot meal and healthy snacks will be provided. 

We will be visiting a different space in the borough each day:

Monday 9th - Tooting and Mitcham FC - SM4 6BF

Tuesday 10th - Pollards Hill Youth Club - CR4 1LT

Wednesday 11th - Phipps Bridge Youth Club - CR4 3PR

Thursday 12th - Sherwood Park Hall - CR4 1JP


Monday 16th - Thursday 19th August 2021 - Peer Press 

Over the course of a week, we will transform your young person into a Citizen Journalist. They will learn a different journalistic skill each day - including film, photography, podcasting and writing articles - and be guided in how to create content that amplifies their voices and helps them to articulate their experiences. A hot meal and healthy snacks will be provided each day.
