At Chocolate Films we love Go Pro cameras. These small cameras are extremely versatile, and can be attached to pretty much anything. We’ve secured them to bicycles, motorbikes, boats, people and even dogs when making our films.
In this workshop we look at how to use Go Pro cameras to create exciting shots and great looking action sequences. The workshop is perfect for an after-school club or a one or two day workshop. It’s active, engaging and fun for participants. It’s a fantastic way to look at visual storytelling using moving cameras, and dynamic editing skills.

Being involved in SElect18films/Chocolate Films has helped my recovery beyond any words I can summon, indeed, I struggled so much with social phobia that I doubt I’d been able to express myself before my involvement with Chocolate Films. The filmmaking process has helped me overcome these issues with social phobia and awkwardness and to realise that one of my strengths is actually in social settings with an ability to communicate. A lot of this happened in film planning sessions and later during filming and editing. The sort of change I experienced cannot happen in the normal therapeutic setting I’m used to, it needed the challenging, but safe reallife scenarios of being involved in filmmaking. Social phobias and anxiety is a very common issue for those recovering from substance use dependence and is often the cause of relapse.

Thanks for the huge part you played running the I Am Creative programme at The Complete Works during this term. Thanks to Ross and Harriet from Chocolate Films who did a great job of facilitating the sessions. It was so great to have so many creative minds enthusiastically working together to come up with the best possible pitch to B&Q. As the judges said at the final, the work you created was exceptional! Well done again!
