Glasgow Caledonian University is producing a series of on campus / student life short films, which will explore living and coping with autism as a student. The films are designed to help students who study at university, higher education level and will be used in workshops and events, to support students when they first start their studies. One of the aspects of the project will be to work with some of our students who live with autism, to gain an insight into how to act and convey what it feels like to deal with the many social situations and pressures that are encountered, and as such our students will assist with the direction and editing of the short films. We would particularly like to welcome acting students and collaboration with other education establishments currently teaching courses within drama and performance.
