The #BeACreativeProducer Project is the culmination of 9 months of hard work by 5 teenagers and Paula Briggs from AccessArt.
The team have been meeting after school and at weekends to share their creative skills in the digital and physical world (including art, drama, dance, music and making), to create a series of animations and films which aim to inspire other young people to value their own creativity.
The journey the teenage team has been on has been quite extraordinary and is testimony to their openness to explore the many opportunities presented to them. In addition to their hard work in making the animations, which involved a wide variety of skills from concept and brainstorming, making models, playing and composing music, filming, drama, creating artwork and models, recording voice overs, editing and marketing, the team have also visited art schools and interviewed creative adults, run a successful crowdfunder, run workshops for children, organised an animation competition, written articles and posts, and presented their project at the Houses of Parliament!
The end result, a series of animation designed to inspire teenage creativity in others, will be launched at the end of February 2019. Watch this space to find out more, and make sure you are registered with AccessArt to be kept in touch!
