shmu’s One Day Challenge

Aged 12-18 and looking for a challenge in the summer holidays?

Are you up for making a film, broadcasting a live radio programme, or making a song from scratch in just one day? 

If you live in Tillydrone, Woodside, Torry, Middlefield, Seaton, Northfield or Cummings Park, come and join us at shmu HQ in Woodside, Aberdeen during the summer holidays for shmu's One Day Challenge.  Our challenge sessions will give you a taster of what goes into creating your own film, radio programme or track and how much fun it can be.

Throughout the day you'll be given support by our tutors to come up with an idea and then use our professional equipment and studios at shmu HQ to bring it to life.  At the end of the day you'll be able to either watch your film on the big screen or broadcast your show live on shmuFM across Aberdeen.
