Film workshops are one of Offshoot’s specialties and, through our Charity, feel we are a market leader in what we offer. We pride ourselves in being able to build a film workshop completely around you. Visit our Charity The Offshoot Foundation HERE.
The Offshoot Foundation is dedicated to giving young people an opportunity to shine within the world of media. Using professional equipment we encourage students to undertake a number of roles within the filmmaking world, from scriptwriter to camera operator. We hope to create a positive atmosphere where students feel confident to contribute ideas, and therefore produce a film, of which they have ownership. The Offshoot Foundation has a wealth of experience, working with all ages, diverse backgrounds and varying abilities. We allow children to explore the world of filmmaking opening their eyes to how hard work and dedication can produce fantastic and professional results; and perhaps even having a new respect for their favourite program!
We hope to create a supportive atmosphere, where students encourage one another to undertake a variety of roles, within the production team. Although the development of these skills is our primary goal, often children’s communications skills are enhanced during the process. The ability to work productively as a team is vital, and ideas and thoughts need to be expressed coherently.
Workshops will be tailored around your needs. Larger groups can be split, allowing two tutors to work independently.
Workshops can range from just a few hours to several days; but we strive to ensure all learning objectives are met. We offer a number of workshops; however we can incorporate topics from the classroom, from mini-beasts with Year 2, to a French film, with Year 9 thus providing the school with a resource for the future. We have an understanding of the National Curriculum and enjoy researching topics to incorporate in any project.
If time permits, we also endeavour to edit the footage, to premier at the end of the project. The young people can instantly evaluate their efforts, and see the pieces of the puzzle fall into place. It is a real reward for all involved and a chance to reflect on their achievements.
We pride ourselves in creating long-term relationships with schools and being invited back year after year. The Offshoot Foundation provides students with a meaningful insight into the world of media.
Live Streaming has become just as important as video production when it comes to reaching your audience and we at Offshoot Films realise this. This is why we now offer a brand new service for all your Live Streaming needs. No matter how big or small we can stream a HD multi camera production of your event live to your Facebook page or YouTube channel.

We had a busy summer in 2015 when we had the task of producing a number of short promotional films highlighting Xplore's Summer Camps. This included traveling the country documenting the young people taking part in activities and hearing what they had to say. This was one of our biggest projects to date and featured over 10 hours of recorded content!
