Workshop-Planet YouTube

Fake news film

Young people watch the media platform YouTube a lot. As a result, they watch a lot of videos. Documentaries, influencers, sports competitions, movies, music videos and much more. Which subconsciously influences them. It changes the way they view themselves, other peers and society. But YouTube also influences how they view gender roles and image. The camera angle also affects the power of the music video.
In the Planet YouTube workshop, students will search YouTube for a video clip, which they will analyse and dissect themselves. This involves answering questions such as: What message is the director delivering? Why does the camera take a certain position? What roles do the people in the video assume? Then, in groups, they will use green screen filming techniques to reenact the chosen clip or give their own interpretation of it. After all the videos have been recorded, they can reflect on each other's work.
