WORLDbytes is an online Citizen TV channel set up and run by the education charity, WORLDwrite. It reports on serious issues by challenging ideas in a way that you will not see broadcast on regular news channels. WORLDbytes is also dedicated to teaching young people new skills, which is achieved through a volunteering scheme for 16-25 year olds who are interested in filmmaking. It is the chance to gain free on the job training while pursuing a career you love, improving your CV, and focussing on key issues that matter to you.
WORLDbytes produce quality programmes, while often working with people who may never have picked up a camera before. This means it is a great experience for any skill level.
Volunteer Learners are taught in the studio and out on the streets, so as to engage with the public. During your training, you will get to plan programmes, give interviews, write scripts, form crews, learn about sound, lighting, how to operate a camera, and edit film.
If you are interested in becoming a Citizen TV volunteer, then you can book a place at their next introductory evening on the 24th July at 7.30pm.
