New storytelling video about Forest School

WorkCabin Creative’s newest filming and production work is a one-minute video for Forest School – Nature’s Calling Environmental Education.

This short video is an excellent example of how storytelling can be used in videos of any length to engage audiences and generate an emotional reaction after watching. This particular video included a story of a toad and the emotional reaction of a child to discovery.

This video was crafted to really maximize the impact it could make in one minute. It leaves viewers smiling at the end. And it makes parents think, “Wow! Forest school looks like so much fun!” Ultimately, a video like this helps generate inquiries to the school about enrolling children.

Via Forest School Association:

Forest School is a child-centred inspirational learning process, that offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. It is a long-term program that supports play, exploration and supported risk taking. It develops confidence and self-esteem through learner inspired, hands-on experiences in a natural setting.

Forest School has a developmental ethos shared by thousands of trained practitioners around the world, who are constantly developing their learning styles and skills to support new and imaginative learners. Its roots reach back to the open-air culture, friluftsliv, or free air life, seen as a way of life in Scandinavia where Forest School began.

The process helps and facilitates more than knowledge-gathering, it helps learners develop socially, emotionally, spiritually, physically and intellectually. It creates a safe, non-judgemental nurturing environment for learners to try stuff out and take risks. Forest School inspires a deep and meaningful connection to the world and an understanding of how a learner fits within it. Our approach to risk means that learners constantly expand on their abilities by solving real-world issues, building self-belief and resilience. Forest schools believe that risk is more than just potential for physical harm, but a more holistic thing, there are risks in everything we do, and we grow by overcoming them. Forest School therefore, helps participants to become, healthy, resilient, creative and independent learners.
