Whether you have iPads, Galaxy Tablets or mobile phones we will provide your participants with an exciting and eye-opening creative experience so that they make their own short tablet film.
Visual storytelling is at the heart of this fast-paced workshop. We will show participants clips of vines, instagrams and short films that will inspire storyboarding ideas. Participants will film their ideas and watch back and then develop these clips further, seeing what works well as they develop their visual language of storytelling. By the end of the workshop, participants will have worked as a team on several short film ideas.

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!
