Participation Young People Support

Developing skills to support career aspirations

Forces Children Scotland delivered a three-day creative documentary-making residential for young people in partnership with creative agency, Rebel Loop Studios.

Eight young people from armed forces families travelled from across Scotland to Glasgow to complete a series of workshops that introduced storyboarding, scripting, mobile phone, and SLR camera recording techniques, and much more.

Once basics were grasped, the young people learned how to conduct one-to-one interviews, and then put everything they had learned into practice through fun-based group recording projects.

Having generated lots of fantastic content, the young people learned how to edit their footage into a professional final cut to create two fantastic short pieces about life in a forces family.

Josh has ambitions to study acting at university when he leaves school, and grasped this opportunity to get involved with Forces Children Scotland.

Listen to what Josh had to say about his experience below.
