Chocolate Films offer filmmaking workshops which enable participants to take their creativity, imagination and skills to the next level. They provide enjoyable learning experiences for a diverse range of young people, with a strong focus to empower them in a supportive working environment.
Their workshops are run by professional filmmakers, all of whom have DBS checks and are experienced in working with diverse groups of young people and adults ranging from ages 1-100. Chocolate Films Workshops are fun, creative filmmaking and animation experiences for all ages.
They are skilled at working with participants on the autistic spectrum. They understand the challenges autistic participants face and create a friendly and comfortable atmosphere so participants feel at ease. They work to nurture and facilitate each participant’s strengths and needs and collaborate closely with carers and staff to ensure that participants feel safe and have an enjoyable time. Chocolate Films regularly provide workshops for Autism Networks and the National Autism Society. In 2015 Chocolate Films raised funding from The London Community Foundation Big Local North Brixton Fund to create a 1000 Londoners project with Lambeth Adult Autism Group.
Their workshops for young people and adults with SEN and disabilities are carefully planned with the individuals in mind. They have experience working with young people with Aspergers, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Down’s Syndrome and speech and language difficulties.
