Peggy Nacitas, host video MJC Savigny-sur-Orge (and former coordinator of Imag’Essone Festival), having suggested that I host this year’s workshops “Pocket Films” with youth of the city, and seeing the great results, suggested the leaders of various socio-cultural structures of the city to come together for a common training. The goal is, from this training, awareness of the potential and effectiveness of these image education practices to build for next year projects synergy between the different structures.

In half a day, I just proposed to the 11 leaders to experience a workshop “Pocket Films”. I think we live things inside to realize the real impact.

I do not detail my teaching, which can be found elsewhere on this site. I’ve done work on “Filming the words”. Here are their films (they had 20 minutes to make), which are also on the site Filming words (films in french, no english subtitles).
