Co-creative Filmmaking – Process, Representation and Ethics

Participatory filmmaking is widely recognised as a method of engaging communities, building confidence, teaching skills and giving voice. Taking a co-creative approach frames people not only as contributors but as influencers, intrinsic to creating authentic collaborative content. In this workshop we will explore the role of filmmaker, contributors and co-creators through the production process of 2 short films: We Journey Together (2017), a short film depicting the story of 4 people and their experience in the asylum process in Scotland and You Play Your Part (2011), charts the experiences of campaigning women on Clydeside, from the Rent Strikes of 1915 to the Campaign for Equal Pay and the Upper Clyde Shipyards work-in.

The workshop, led by Plantation Productions, will feature discussion with Moya Crowley, Creative Director, Chris McGill, freelance filmmaker and Dr. Kirsten MacLeod, filmmaker and Associate Professor at Edinburgh Napier University.
