Workshop Assistant: Friday 12-18s Film
Charlie is a young and inspiring filmmaker working with Strange Town to help teach film and theatre to other young people. He is on the Autistic spectrum and he uses that to drive his passion for film. Film has been a huge passion of his for many years and he is enthused to have the chance to teach it to people, with the hope that those people he teaches will have the same passion as him. He’s most looking forward to talking and discussing film with his group. He is very excited to start this journey and happy to be working with Strange Town.
