collaboration is at the heart of our program.


We empower the next generation of
independent-minded thinkers through storytelling & performance practise, so that they feel confident in shooting & editing their films on mobile devices,

and become strong visual communicators.

We are passionate about using filmmaking tools to improve soft skills in young people.
