Community Film Unit

Realising how charities and third sector organisations were facing stiff financial challenges in the current climate, we decided to help by setting up our Community Film Unit.

The model is simple: we train young creatives by teaching them practical skills at our film academy. Once they reach a certain skill level, we begin employing them for our Community Film Unit productions.

Good for them: The young people get real, paid opportunities working on professional projects.

Good for you: If you’re a public or third sector organisation, this means we can offer you a viable and affordable way to outsource a film project - and so create a quality video for your organisation.

Our quality guarantee: Our core team continue to oversee all production aspects of Community Film Unit projects, ensuring a consistent quality to the Unit’s work.

Our social remit: The Community Film Unit make films and tell stories about society’s most important issues, helping to create a better world. (Check out the three videos below.)
