Based in Sudbury, Suffolk, The Offshoot Foundation is a registered charity and has consistently produced professional filmmaking workshops and projects for young and disadvantaged young people across the whole UK since 2008. These projects help develop confidence, leadership and teamwork skills through film making and creative media.
"We aim to empower, enthuse and inspire young people, to develop life skills and raise aspirations by using creative media to reach their full potential - and we're always happy to see former students return as mentors, passing on their experiences to new participants. We've already helped many young people into further education, university and employment in the film and TV industries, with many of our ex-students also coming back for work experience and paid work with us. Over 30 of our ex-students now work professionally in the Film and Television industry."
