Call for participants: Helium film project for teens living with chronic illness
Are you a teenager living with a chronic illness or have you spent long periods of time in hospital?
Are you keen to learn about and try out some script-writing, filming or acting? What about online film-making?
If the answer is YES to any of the above, we would love to hear from you!
Two Suitcases is a national film project run by Helium in which young people living with chronic illness get the opportunity to collaborate on writing, filming and editing their own scripts with support from professional film-makers and artists. Teenagers on the project have already made two films and won two film awards along the way.
The great thing about the project is that you can take part in person or online … and it’s free for all participants!
August – October: Join other teens online to write a collaborative film script on Helium’s private creative space OAK
August – October: Skype master classes with professional film-makers, writers and artists moderated by Helium.
29 Oct – 2 Nov: Mid-term film week at the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) in Dublin. Online activities will include set design, animation, and virtual acting
November: Editing and soundtrack composition workshops … you can join us online here too.
Whatever your interest, there’s a workshop and a role for you.
