In Valladolid, Spain, Film-making is taught to children without them having to use a camera. Following are some of the videos showcasing the process and final results of these workshops.

The Asociación Espacio Rojo [2] (Red Space Asociation) is the one organizing the workshops, and this is how they introduce their vision:

Actualmente, Estamos realizando el Taller ‘Mi primera película’ que es un taller práctico de cine sin cámara. Este taller presenta la forma de hacer cine, películas sin cámaras usando técnicas y soporte cinematográfico como medio de expresión.

Currently, the “My First Movie” workshop is taking place, a practical film-making workshop without using cameras. This workshop shows the process of making movies on film without using cameras, using different techniques and projectors as a means of expression.
