Education

"Northhampton Academy has a long standing relationship with Large Scale. Our students have enjoyed the all round quality experience of the Large Scale film workshop wihich encompasses expert tuition and supervision, provision of cutting edge wquipment, quality production service and post production care. The freedom that the students are given to work as a team and bring their own ideas into fruition is an excellent opportunity - not offered in the curriculum. They all have truly benefited."

The work is always very well organised and undertaken with a great level of communication, which makes working with them on long as well as short-term projects clear and manageable. Steve is dedicated to producing work of a high quality and holds a good working relationship with other artists, teachers and children alike."

Large Scale's Commitment

Large Scale combines professional filmmaking experience with a commitment to young people’s participation, providing support and expertise for young people to realise their own film projects. Our passion is to provide young people the space to be creative and develop their own ideas. We provide filmmaking expertise and project management guidance to support that process.

Our Experience

Large Scale have considerable experience working with young people. We have worked with Creative Partnerships Leicester and The Mighty Creatives (The delivery organisation for Creative Partnerships East Midlands) for over 5 years, we have delivered projects for EM-Media (East Midlands regional film & TV development agency), First Light, Cine Hubs and Ignition, as well as developing long term relationships with individual organisations and institutions.
 
We have experience of working in many differing settings including the full range of formal education (5-23 year olds) and in informal settings such as outreach centres, community programmes and working with former offenders. With young people we have developed and delivered projects in a range of genres including drama, documentary, animation, music video, art films, information films and issue based films.

The Process

As with all our projects, each is unique. We will spend time working with you to plan a programme to suit you and the young people you are working with. As we develop projects Large Scale we will work with you to fix budgets and a realistic delivery schedule, and arrange dates during the project for review, reflection and viewing footage
 
Though film is a technologically reliant medium we try to simplify without patronising, provide technical information where applicable, and above all encourage the young peoples’ vision, so they can see their film on screen. We like to think that we do this with a light touch and good deal of humour, making the whole experience enjoyable and empowering.

Project Management

Large Scale have considerable expertise in leading and managing filmmaking and arts projects.  We have managed projects aiming to change whole schools working with many art practitioners and on individual projects. We can support you with managing the film production element, or, if necessary manage the entire project, taking responsibility for development, working in partnership, recruitment, budgets, leadership, distribution and evaluation. 

Working With Your Priorities

Large Scale have worked with a huge range of education commissioners and realise that each has its own objectives and reasons for making a film or engaging with training. We see it as our job to consult with you, developing projects that allow you to reach your objectives. We take care to identify links and emphasise certain elements of the production process to satisfy your criteria.
