'Eden Court Creative Shorts' - Thu 29 March 18:15 - La Scala Cinema, Eden Court Theatre
Comedy, thrills and music videos are just a few of the highlights to be found in this month’s Eden Court Creative Shorts. Participants in Eden Court Creative’s Filmmaking and Digital Animation classes will exhibit the fruits of their labours from the past few months at this free public screening in Eden Court’s fabulous La Scala cinema.
As well as work created by our regular class students, we will be screening films made by participants from our Creative Identities project. This initiative takes an innovative approach to providing arts activities to young people aged 10-19 in Scotland, enabling them to use filmmaking as an expressive form of communication whilst gaining confidence and developing skills.
Regular filmmaking and digital animation classes run every week at Eden Court, giving anyone the opportunity to try their hand at bringing their ideas to life on the screen. Under the direction of the theatre’s in-house Digital Artist Graeme Roger, these popular classes provide students with the opportunity to use state-of-the art equipment to enhance their learning.
Graeme said, “The work produced by the recent classes shows the range of talent and ambition of our local students. Our classes are a fun approach to filmmaking designed to encourage participants to experiment with all kinds of filmmaking styles and share ideas with new friends. It’s a fantastic opportunity for them to see their own work on the big screen and for the public to see what they could achieve by getting involved here at the theatre.”

Creative Identities is an 18-month pilot initiative for young people aged 10-19 funded by the Scottish Government's CashBack for Communities fund using £1.2 million from the proceeds of crime, and is managed in partnership by Scottish Screen and Creative Scotland. The initiative takes an innovative approach to providing arts and moving image media activities available to young people aged 10-19 in Scotland.
Filmmaking and Digital Animation run alongside the other huge range of classes and activities available through Eden Court Creative. Over 60 ‘At Eden Court’ classes take place every week, including creative play for Under 5’s; drama and dance for young people; a host of activities for adults including singing, creative writing and photography; and integrated creative classes for those with additional needs.
