The Offshoot Foundation

General Details

The Offshoot Foundation is a local charity dedicated to giving young people an opportunity to shine within the world of media. Our vast experience enables us to get the best out of each individual despite any perceived ability, age or background.
Using professional equipment we encourage students to undertake a number of roles within the filmmaking world, from scriptwriter to camera operator. We hope to create a positive atmosphere where students feel confident to contribute ideas, and therefore produce a film, of which they have ownership. We allow children to explore the world of filmmaking; opening their eyes to how hard work and dedication can produce fantastic and professional results; and perhaps even having a new respect for their favourite television program!
We hope to create a supportive atmosphere, where students encourage one another to undertake a variety of roles, within the production team. Although the development of these skills is our primary goal, often children’s communications skills are enhanced during the process. The ability to work productively as a team is vital, and ideas and thoughts need to be expressed coherently.
We pride ourselves in creating long-term relationships with schools and being invited back year after year.
Schools that have taken part include:
- East Bergholt Primary School
- Ipswich High School for Girls
- Abbots Hall Primary, Stowmarket
- Whitton School, Ipswich - Laureate School, Newmarket - Woodbridge Primary School, Gorseland Primary School, Copleston High School, Gt Cornard Upper School, Sudbury Upper School, 13 Schools in the Thurston Cluster
