This resource will explore the five stages of the filmmaking process, and explains how you can best facilitate each stage for your group. The guide focuses on live-action narratives but the principles of planning, developing and shooting a film can be applied to animation and documentary. This guide also contains two additional chapters, Making Animations and Making Documentaries, which provide detailed support on how to facilitate for young people creating these specific types of films. Into Film provides opportunities for young people from a range of backgrounds to become involved in filmmaking activity. Our programmes allow them to tell their stories, recount their experiences, learn new skills and share their views through creative film projects. Through our See It, Make It programme, we are able to work with thousands of young people every year, giving them the opportunity to make their own short films alongside professional filmmakers, enabling them to take on the lead production roles including director, camera operator and editor, which supports the development of a range of transferable skills. Here, young people are not passive participants: they are supported and empowered to devise, develop, shoot and edit their own films.
