A suitcase. Five cameras. Two editing computers. A filmmaker who is also a teacher. A bunch of films made by young people for young people.
These are the AllAboutUs FilmFactory ingredients. A film school on the loose. A media school for young people, aiming at connecting them internationally through their own films. Young people who feel repressed, who live in war zones, or in areas uncovered or systematically neglected by the media. But also young people in countries with media overdose, controlled by commercial networks, who, either out of lack of interest or lack of empathy, are unable to present a truly human perspective in their programs, especially the true train of thoughts living in the minds of young people. Apart from a thorough media education young people will get the chance to control the film medium in their own way. Developing individual empowerment will run parallel with learning all the necessary technical skills. Social discipline, intercultural exchange, and acquiring a critical understanding of the media world, will lead to a series of highly individual films. They will represent the world of young people proper, their environment, and youth culture at large. The AllAboutUs FilmFactortrains young people in order to be designers of their personal narrative and collective future. Young people who were active in previous film projects or from countries where the AllAboutUs FilmFactory was operating previously, will be peer educators and intermediaries in new ventures. This working method has been succesfully tested in the Whuzzup goes Bronx project, where dutch youngsters helped young people living in the Bronx to make their own movies. The AllAboutUs FilmFactory aims at being an antidote to contemporary media culture, dominated by commercialism and manipulation. The AllAboutUs FilmFactory also aims at igniting an initial spark for those young people who intend to claim their right to play a substantial role within the TV medium, and to use this medium in order to reach their own target group: themselves! The AllAboutUs FilmFactory can be deployed by youth workers and progressive media makers: coaching future coaches, and setting up media projects by young people who will afterwards be able to develop projects independently. The AllAboutUs FilmFactory aims at filling up the program gap caused by negligence and lack of interest by the established networks, especially for the age group between twelve and twenty years. The AllAboutUs FilmFactory anticipates the possibility to present streaming film content through the Internet. Within a few years it will be possible to set up a broad youth network accessible for everybody, so that the power of the media networks can be effectively bypassed by means of the World Wide Web.
