WHAT HAPPENS IN THE WORKSHOP

This form of filmmaking explores the possibilities of combining factual filmmaking with different techniques such as animation, drama and reconstructions. It is an excellent way to explore ideas, emotions and themes that could be challenging to depict on film.

It is perfect for bringing history to life and engaging audiences with challenging topics. Moreover this type of documentary brings together multiple disciplines and appeals to many young people as they can explore real life topics whilst also being creative and expressing their own ideas.
