Overview of Support offered

Our offer for the This Is Me focuses on the use of cutting edge interactive digital media for which we utilise either traditional film production, stop animation or Machinima (this is the convergence of games design technology and film making)

This can be a one-to-one offer or for small groups and will require at least 6 sessions (2 hours in length) or a whole day in order to achieve ASDAN Expressive Arts certification and to functionally understand and be able to utilise the technology.

The sessions (day) will commence with you identifying which technology you would like to use (film, stop animation or Machinima), working with LPF facilitators (either in a one-to-one or group setting) in an interactive and engaging way to understand and learn how to use the technology, developing and planning both the idea for the content and the storyboard before moving onto full development.

Content will usually be linked to your journey/past/issues or how you wish to present yourself within the media and can be utilised as a visual CV or stand-alone piece.

This activity draws upon and utilises & develops a range of skills such as goal setting, planning, design, communication, listening and exposes you to a range of technical skills which will enhance your personal development and CV.

We offer work placements within our interactive digital media company which would allow you to get a full flavour of work based environments, try different departments and contribute to meaningful live projects under guidance. This enhances CV’s and shows prospective employers that you have experience and motivation.
