A NEW media club is set to launch in the Garnock Valley next month.

The Garnock Media Club has been set up by the popular Ayrshire Film Company CIC, in partnership with Beith Community Association.

The first session takes place on Thursday, June 1, at Beith Community Centre 6.30-8.30pm, and the club will be free to join. It will continue weekly for the first sesion.

Members of the Ayrshire Film Company hope that this can be a new opportunity that will aim to provide a creative platform for young filmmakers in our community.

The new club in the Garnock Valley follows the success of the Irvine Media Club, which they have been running in North Ayrshire for over a year now.

Young people involved in that club have just completed their first short film 'The Violinist'.

Now, they are hoping to spread this success further into the county.

This groundbreaking initiative offers an extraordinary opportunity for students in S3 and above to learn, explore, and express themselves through the medium of film.

In a rapidly evolving digital age, media literacy and creative expression have become invaluable skills.

The Garnock Media Club aims to equip young individuals with the tools and knowledge necessary to navigate the dynamic world of filmmaking and media arts.

By providing a supportive and inclusive environment, the club seeks to foster innovation, collaboration, and a genuine passion for storytelling.

The Garnock Media Club invites all young individuals in S3 and above who have a passion for filmmaking or a desire to explore the world of media arts to join this exciting initiative.

By taking part in this club, young filmmakers will not only acquire invaluable skills but also forge lifelong friendships, discover new perspectives, and uncover their own unique voices.
