Young TikTokers Bring Old Professions to Life

A group of 10 aspiring TikTokers aged 12-16 from Northern Ireland and border counties came together to take part in a virtual programme focused on developing their filmmaking and acting skills.


The programme was delivered by the PRONI team for the 100 Shared Stories strand and used their archives to explore professions that no longer exist, such as the Town Crier or the Human Alarm Clock.


Over the course of four days, the young TikTokers took part in a hands-on Acting workshop with Louise Conaghan and Smartphone Filmmaking workshops with Robert Fitzhugh (Dublin Smartphone Film Festival).


They created a series of TikTok-styled videos about these professions and the results can be seen here:
