Chill on Screen

One of the most common and popular interests among young adults on the autism spectrum is film & television. Vloggers, YouTubers, and Instagram content makers are at the centre of the creative social networks of millennials and participation in these creative and potentially lucrative platforms is a great way to connect, be heard and build skills.

Chill on screen is a hands-on interactive program that offers participants the opportunity to learn and practise different filmmaking skills and techniques. Some of these skills include storytelling, scriptwriting, camera operating, video editing and more. Filmmaking can be an exorbitantly expensive venture however this program coaches participants in how to create content using common domestic equipment such as a smart phone, laptop and internet.

Pre-requisite: Being enrolled in or completion of Chill Foundation.
