One of the aims of the Scotland Creates project was to encourage young people to use technology to connect, collaborate and get creative. So we asked volunteers from each of the five partners to create short films to promote their museums to other young people.

To kickstart the process, we joined forces with digital agency Sound Delivery and documentary film maker Suzanne Cohen, who ran an action-packed two-day film-making workshop with our young volunteers, to equip them with the skills to storyboard their films and create all the assets, from film and photography to animation and artwork.

You can read all about the workshops on our blog.

And here are the films! Many thanks to Suzanne Cohen and Sound Delivery, and to Camden CLC (City Learning Centre) for their support.
