This 4-week project will be intensive and focused, 40 kids [ages 10-16] will work with a volunteers (that’s you!) to fulfill the various roles necessary for making a film. You will work in partnership with the selected participants, using the Akosia philosophy of experiential learning and our ‘ask-don’t-tell’ method of teaching. You will teach them all they know and give first-hand experience of the job, honing specialist skills that they can take into their future.
We are putting together a film crew of Accra’s top talent in film-making. From producers to editors to camera people to sound engineers- we’re looking for a full crew to make 2 amazing short films.
As with all of our projects, the creative control will be in the hands of the children with you guiding them with your expertise and the Akosia coaching methods.
