Cineyouth: Fostering Youth Creativity Through Application of online cinema simulator
The general objective of the project is to foster youth creativity in the field of cinema and video making thus enhancing the development of social skills and competences affected by the isolation during the pandemic times and identifying talents and stimulating their advance to creative domains in cinema and video production.
More specifically, the pandemic has shifted the skills development process of young people towards more one-dimensional communication, primarily centered on coping with the current situation. This has hindered the improvement of personal, social and professional skills crucial for boosting innovation and creative potential, essential for recovery in the cultural and creative sectors post-pandemic. Economic regression has also influenced young people's perceptions of future employment.
From a youth perspective, social inclusion is defined as an individual's self-realization, acceptance, and recognition within society. To unlock their full potential, young people need to acquire various skills and access specialized information. The project focuses on helping young people develop their artistic talents, specifically in expressing themselves through audio-visual and cinematic language.
The specific objectives are:
● To create training content adapted to low-educated young people on how to improve their communication and personal expression skills using attractive, digital and creative tools such as the fundamentals of filmmaking.
● To give disadvantaged young people access to specialised cinema education and broaden their opportunities for professional development.
● To give the participants a real chance to practise their talents and self-expression by free interactive digital tools which stimulate proactiveness and interest in creating short films, based on specific topics and their own video presentations.
