Genevieve White works as an ESOL tutor at a community learning centre in Shetland. She and her learners have made a number of films in recent years. These include a documentary on learners’ impressions of Shetland, a spoof horror filmed on location in a ruined castle and a short film about one happy couple’s not -so -perfect wedding.
Genevieve is also an experienced creative writing tutor. In her free time she likes beach combing and trying to play the guitar.
Elaine Williamson teaches ESOL at South Thames College in London. She is interested in participatory approaches to education and is always on the look out for new projects to try with her class. She is complete beginner at film making and is hoping to learn from others involved in the project and from her students.
