W12 Film Unit

Shepherd's Bush Delivery stage

pledged of £11,643

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

We will buy equipment such as cameras, microphones, tripods, computers, lighting etc. Young people will be taught by professional film tutors through workshops where they will learn the fundamentals of filmmaking such as Screen writing, Directing, Producing, Editing, Sound Recording and Acting. Film Unit members will be able to use their new found skills and knowledge to go out and produce their very own content such as music videos, short films, documentaries, adverts and viral marketing videos. From the content that the film unit members create, we will hold the first W12 Film Festival - showcasing the talent of the film unit.

What we'll deliver:

  • Advertise & market the project
  • Film unit productions members make their very own productions
  • Hands-on training in Film & TV production
  • Obtaining media equipment for W12 film unit
  • W12 Film Festival

Why it's a great idea:

We believe that impact on the participants will be life changing as it will give them new found skills and confidence in their abilities, a deeper knowledge and understanding of the UK film industry, creating job prospects, and a positive future for participants. All productions made by the young people will be available on a variety of social media platforms such as facebook, twitter, youtube and the W12 Film Unit official website. This will give our film unit members a sense of achievement, pride and confidence as they have been involved in a professional production - which they can also use on their CV's.

Steps to get it done:

  • Buying equipment for the Film Unit
  • Film tutors teaching young people the principles of filmmaking
  • Film Unit members produce productions
  • launching the Film Unit
  • W12 Film Unit festival showcasing young peoples work
