Liverpool Youth Service and Powerhouse Screening
The Mobile Movies project has been developed by LJMU's International Centre of Digital Content and is part of ICDC's Digital Inclusion Programme, which develops projects and opportunities that aim to encourage community groups, schools and other organisations to work creatively with technology.
On Tuesday 30 October 2007 Mobile Movies had a joint screening for the young people from both the Liverpool Youth Service and Powerhouse Foyer groups to showcase their Mobile Movie masterpieces.
The evening put the spotlight on the young people and it was an opportunity for them to share and celebrate their talent and creativity with their fellow film makers, members of the Mobile Movies Steering Group, friends and family.
Some of the young people presented their work to an audience of 40, however, all participants were awarded with a certificate of achievement and a CD of their work.
ICDC received some great feedback from the participants, who were really pleased with the workshops they had taken part in and the work they produced.
To view the films created so far, visit: www.mobilemovies.org.uk.
Mobile Movies will be continuing with future film making workshops over the next three months with groups such as Refugee Action, UK Youth Parliament and the Irish Traveller community.
