Film on your Phone

Tell your stories and turn them into mini movies with professional filmmaker and Photographer Carl Joyce.

Young people outside. One using a camera on a tripod, next to the young boy, a man is showing a young person how to use audio equipment. On the right a boy stands looking at his phone.

This Summer (2022), young residents of Cramlington shouted ‘Lights, Camera, Action!‘ on Film on Your Phone.

Working with documentary film maker and photographer Carl Joyce young people had the opportunity to skill up and explore:

  • How to storyboard your own film
  • Importance of using Lighting and Audio in your film
  • How to make a cinematic film using only your phone
  • Basic Video editing

“It’s shocking we were able to make an episode of something because some children have never done that before so it’s a big shock.”
