About the project
Claire and James from Porth Sound worked on behalf of Made Open Communications in 2018 to create a series of news-style videos with the young people of Aspires’ Dreadnought Centre, Pool. These news videos present Cornwall Council’s new Children’s Autism Strategy to other Autistic young people and their families.
James and Claire provided sound and camera, and provided Made Open with an end-end video production service, including editing, sound mixing and colour grading.
Claire assisted in running a few filmmaking workshops with the young people at the Dreadnought Centre, before they got involved in planning and filming the news reports.
Cornwall Council are currently seeking the views of children and young people with autism, parents / carers, and professionals through a public questionnaire of the Autism Strategy for Children and Young People in Cornwall. The Autism Strategy for Children and Young People in Cornwall is composed of aims and objectives centred around four key areas; education, health, early help and social care, and leisure and physical activity.
What is the Autism Strategy for Cornwall?
What changes are happing in education?
What changes are happening in health?
What changes are happening in leisure?
What changes are happening in care?
We're proud to have produced five films for Cornwall Council - working with an amazing group of young people with Autism Spectrum Condition. During the project, the young people from the Dreadnought Centre in Camborne learnt about all aspects of the filmmaking process - from storyboarding through to editing and post production - to describe what changes are happening across health, education and leisure services.
