BBC LabToo: Citizenship and Literacy
5 x 5 min films, BBC Learning website
In early 2012 ScreenHI successfully gained a commission from BBC Scotland Learning to make 5 short films covering the topics of Literacy and Citizenship. As well as delivering creative content on these themes ScreenHI was thrilled to be able to secure this kind of invaluable experience for our Highlands and Islands practitioners and school groups, who worked together throughout. We had teams in Elgin, Uist, Stornoway, Shetland and Dingwall. In addition to the usual challenges of how to tell a story through the camera, making programmes for broadcast has a very high level of technical specifications as some of our teams found out. The films have been well received at the BBC and will broadcast online during their 2012 Literacy Campaign.
