Youthcast Summer 2020

16-18 years

Friday 1 May to Tuesday 22 September 2020



Youthcast – teaches young people to create either a podcast or videocast of their own

Multimedia artist Dave Lordon ran workshops online with young people between the ages of 16-18 years. During the first phase of the workshops the group they concentrated on basic storytelling technique and introduction to equipment. The technical resources used were smartphones & cheap or free apps & accessories. Participants used their own store of personal stories, local folklore and atmospheric shooting locations in their area as material for their work.  In groups, participants choose an atmospheric local site to make up a story for – drawing inspiration from their own imaginations & folklore commission records. They shooting their videocasts on location using basic audio & video editing for digital storytelling.

The result, Murder Manor, a five-part drama, is going live this autumn. Find out more –  and view the podcasts – at the link below.
