“When I can’t find the words, I make a film. I explore my world and experiences through my camera.” – Sara Stroud (creator of SEA)
We support filmmakers
Welcome to SEA. We work in partnership Aberdeen city council, Aberdeen University and local charities to support screen education in school, university and community projects.
Recent projects include:
- Friends of the Earth Scotland
- Visual Poetry
- Primary to Secondary transition film projects
We are filmmakers
With over 25 years of practical filmmaking experience in educational and professional projects, we support educators and leaders in embedding practical filmmaking within their work. We love to work directly with children and young people and can provide workshops and activities.
We can also show how to make a film on a mobile phone or iPad and supply equipment if needed, as well as offer access to our resources, studios and editing facilities.
We love screen education
We are passionate about teaching how to read screen texts, as well as making them. We want to improve literacy, personal development, communication and creativity through filmmaking and use screen education to promote growth and inspire change in the classroom and our world.
2024 Community Projects
This year we are focusing on recovery through filmmaking. We are working in partnership with Alcohol & Drugs action, providing a short filmmaking course to support service users. This project has been funded by Aberdeen City councils Creative Funding scheme.
2024 Focus on schools
We can provide training and screen education for your staff or pupils. We can design a one off CLPL training session or a bespoke filmmaking project for your pupils. We can also support schools to access funding and opportunities to work in partnership with Screen Scotland and North East Scotland College. This year we have a passion for working with pupils around environmental issues and looking at how young people can help shape the future of Aberdeen.
We make film happen in your school or community
Everything we do at SEA is about promoting screen education. Our courses for teachers and projects are listed below. We are always keen to hear about what’s happening in your school or community. If you want to find out more, need specialist training or want help making a film, please get in touch email@example.com.
We can also help you apply for funding to cover training costs.
