Get Connected Update Oct '23

Our Get Connected project is well underway, engaging young people in the SEND community aged 16-25 with creative media workshops and activities. We’ve been collaborating with groups at City College Plymouth Skills Development Unit and at Friends and Families Plymouth, with a focus on digital photography and filmmaking.

The young people involved have been learning about various lighting techniques, composition, and basic editing in photography. Additionally, they’ve delved into the intricacies of interview filming, looking at composition for video, scripting, collecting cutaway shots and additional footage, and audio management.

Looking ahead, we’re exciting to be linking up with Brook Green Centre for Learning in November month, along with Skills Launchpad Plymouth, as we continue to Get Connected!

Get Connected is funded by Rank Foundation, who have been supporting Fotonow to develop projects that reduce loneliness and isolation. If you’re interested in our work with community groups and want to find out more about socially engaged photography then get in touch;
