Our project at Craigentinny Early Years Centre has wrapped up, including evaluation with the Early Years Practitioners. Funded by Screen Scotland and City of Edinburgh Council, the project developed Practitioners in camera, sound, and editing, with a focus on sharing practice, and shaping sessions that taught early years children filmmaking.

Working with the Practitioners gave great insight into areas of film that would best develop the children, with storyboarding, composition, camera sessions, and sensory based foley workshops all covered, and a focus on familiar topics that engaged the children, including national bird week, the weather, and classic fairy tales.

We had a fantastic time and the children impressed us with their enthusiasm and engagement with film. We definitely saw more than a few budding future filmmakers there, so watch this space!
