Livity and Youtube Originals collaborate for Terms and Conditions Film School, a weekend of workshops for aspiring filmmakers
Author: Tevyn J | Thursday 5th November 2020
Inspired by the documentary Terms and Conditions: A UK drill story, future consultancy and culture studio agency, Livity and YouTube Originals have teamed up to create a weekend of inspiration and learning to help 18 - 28 year olds across
the UK create their own music documentary.
The film school will host practical lessons and guidance from established film practitioners and mentors such as Andre Mongomery Johnson, Brian Hill and our very own Creative Director Jordan. Students will gain inspiration, unlock
creativity and understand the power of their voice. On top of this, they will receive industry advice from top producers, directors and editors. Combined, this will set students on the path to success when it comes to filmmaking.
On completing the film school, students are given the incredible opportunity to pitch their documentary idea to YouTube Originals and be in with the chance of having their film commissioned.
This initiative is part of Youtube Originals commitment to helping make a positive impact on the lives of young people. Head of Youtube Originals, Luke Hyams is passionate about changing the current stereotypes around drill music "It’s so important now in the age of social media and search and discovery that when you make something for YouTube, where content can get lost, (this film) can serve as a discussion starter. That’s why we went into ‘Terms and Conditions’ and did this specific doc."
When applying, contestants will be required to summarise their experience, say what they liked about Terms and Conditions: A UK Drill story documentary and outline initial thoughts on the subject matter of their own film. Filmmakers from across the country aged 18 - 28 are encouraged to apply and priority will be given to those from underrepresented backgrounds. Applicants should be aspiring filmmakers with some experience, but this doesn’t have to be to a professional standard.
