More than 100 teenagers from Barcelona were cast by the Colectivo Piloto to participate in the shooting of “El Culebron del Barri” (Melodrama in the Neighborhood) and learned the craft of filmmaking from both behind and in front of the camera.

This project revealed some authentic young talents; script writers, sound engineers and actors, among others. The commitment of these inexperienced teenagers was astonishing and resulted in a very enriching experience for them. They ended up creating a comical, but also very professional story that was screened in small theaters and community centers of the city of Barcelona.

This project captured the attention of the media and became a model to follow for a new generation of motivated and entrepreneurial youth looking to have their voices heard in the audiovisual field.
