The workshop is an initiation in the film world, an opportunity for participating children to get in touch with the camera, to speak at the microphone, and to get acquainted with a filming platform. Thus, in the first part of the workshop, the children will interact with each other in front of the camera and have the opportunity to improvise different scenes or situations, under the guidance of the trainer.

Children will participate in individual and group improvisation exercises designed to develop their creativity, imagination, focus, attention or teamwork skills.

The youngsters will be doing exercises in front of the camera on various topics such as news stories, advertisements, teleshopping, movie sequences / scenes where they will learn moving, presentation and speech techniques in front of the camera. Exercises will be filmed and projected on a screen, then analysed under the guidance of the teacher.

This is important in streamlining the process of creating a movie and could not be achieved until a few years ago.
