First Shoots runs filmmaking opportunities for young people and produces community-led films. We work with schools and community groups on educational and participatory filmmaking and digital media projects. We are a social enterprise passionate about engaging and inspiring young people and we are committed to collaborating with educators to further the use of digital media and filmmaking in the classroom.
Our specialised team of professional filmmakers, developers, designers and educators can provide an array of services for your school or community group. These include film training, film and digital media workshops, digital media consultancy and website design, development and content production.
To find out more about these services see our What We Do page.
Our New Online Tool
We have recently relaunched First Shoots with our revamped website and new online interactive service, MyFilm that allows groups to collaborate on film projects that the First Shoots team facilitate. Our platform allows groups to join film projects and learn about filmmaking whilst participating online with the pre-production stage of a community-led film. When the film is ready to be made, our First Shoots team of professional filmmakers lead production and post-production sessions, which will provide all participants with hands-on training.
