FCA is Pleased to Offer Wicked Fish Actors a Training Bursary

Posted on Aug 20, 2016

Background

Full Circle Arts is pleased to announce that they have offered ten bursaries of a maximum of £1000 to emerging disabled artists or disabled led arts groups. Here Sue O’Brien tells us a bit about Wicked Fish and what the bursary will be used for:

History

Wicked Fish is a Liverpool based theatre and creative arts company. The core company comprises five Disabled People, three of whom are performers who have Learning Difficulties. The company was established in 2003. We work as a team to create and deliver performances, workshops, heritage and training projects, in arts, community and education venues. We devise all our own work and have developed our own accessible style of learning. We have worked with partners in Germany, Bulgaria, The Netherlands, Lithuania, Spain and Portugal.

Further information can be found on our website http://www.wickedfish.org.uk

Training

The bursary from Full Circle Arts will be used for filming training.

Neil said: ‘I want to learn how to edit mistakes when filming and sort out any problems on the spot when filming.’

Nicky said: ‘I would like to learn a new skill which I can use on other Wicked Fish projects.’

Jane said: ‘ It will take our ideas onto another level. It will help me as I want to make our own film.

Skills

‘We will discuss our ideas for a short film and learn how to storyboard with pictures and planning. We will learn basic camera operation and sound recording skills as well as presenting and interviewing. We can then learn how to edit our film.’ ‘We will use the skills we have learnt, when working on Wicked Fish projects, such as, filming and recording oral histories.’
