Four young care leavers have been working hard cultivating their documentaries during lockdown. These care leavers bring creativity and uniqueness to their films portraying their stories of the care system. To help the new filmmakers cultivate their upcoming films, the lovely team at Sheffield Documentary Festival have been holding workshops to give the new filmmakers some new and improved film making skills. Over the Christmas break, all filmmakers received some filming equipment to help make their films stand out among the professionals. Some of our filmmakers have described this as a “cool that they have unlocked skills they did not know they had”. While hours spent on TikTok and other video editing platforms have served to some advantage, Zoe Parker, from MMU and the documentary festival team, have been showing the team how to make the most of your phone camera and free video editing software.
