Marketing Text Film crews of youth-at-risk and early school leavers in each acting partner country, with the direct support and input from project partners and trained youth workers produced a variety of film-based projects. They recorded live local events, interviewed people in their communities that had a positive impact on civic, social and community life, created and scripted original dramas, researched and recorded documentaries and participated in live debates on issues that affect young people in the 21st Century.
Description 16 hours of TV programming were produced during the Implementation of DLQ training with young people. Programmes produced are now being broadcast on DLQ-TV.
Target group Youth-at-risk and early school leavers. These TV programmes are also targeted at any visitors to the DLQ project website with an interest in issues effecting young people in Europe today.
Result The quality of the TV programmes in most cases is excellent considering that many of the young people had no or limited prior knowledge of digital media production. These TV programmes and short pieces of film were pivotal to the embedded learning curriculum of DLQ, as youth developed literary, numeric and civic and social competences through working on film crews. The production of this 16 hours of film allowed youth to gain these skills through writing a film script, managing a budget and taking an interest in their communities, either for the documentary, drama, live event, interviews or vox pops.
Area of application These TV programmes and short pieces of film are now being broadcast on DLQ TV, the online TV station linked to the partner website. These TV programmes have been used to highlight issues affecting the lives of young people today including peer pressure, alcoholism and cyber-bulling. Film crews chose their favourite of the TV programmes they produced, and put them forward for judging to the DLQ Short Film Festival, which was facilitated through the project website.
