The Media Lab is home to the Citizenship Media Group.
Taking advantage of The Sutton Life Centre’s excellent facilities – 12 iMacs (equipped with the likes of Adobe Premiere, Final Cut 7, Photoshop and Garage Band), HD cameras, DSLRs, Dedo film lights and professional audio equipment – the Citizenship Media Group meet on TUESDAYS and FRIDAYS, from 5pm until 7.30pm in the Media Lab. Students are aged between 13-to-18 (though email us if you’re interested in sessions involving 7-12 year olds)
On TUESDAYS, we make films about the community, citizenship issues, while also covering special events at the Life Centre.
On FRIDAYS we make short films, promos, sketches, while learning about how to use camera equipment and editing software.
Please register your interest by emailing RichardParisWilson@Gmail.com. Spaces are limited as these sessions are proving very popular, and we want to keep the numbers down to maximise learning.
As well as formal work, we also have fun. We sometimes play computer games. We wear silly hats. We’ve produced music videos and short films and idents. To mix things up, we sometimes run one-off photography workshops, and we’ll soon be expanding our musical abilities, running specialist music workshops.
