In our Online Media workshops participants can learn the skills to help take their creativity to the next level. Whether it be creating a website, uploading videos to YouTube, working with podcasting on Soundcloud or even creating GIFs for social media campaigns, our skilled workshop facilitators will work with you to build your skills.
Participants work with close guidance from our facilitators on a project aimed at building a particular set of skills. This could range from creating a website for a historical archive to developing a social media advertising campaign. The workshops are fun and practical with participants learning a wide range of skills which are highly transferable across all areas their lives.

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!
