Want to learn the essentials of filmmaking in a 2 day workshop?
This course will equip you with the basic tools you need to start your journey in film and hit the ground running. You will work closely with industry professionals in a small group to devise, shoot and edit a piece of film footage. This course is intensive, creative and highly practical. It has been designed for people who want a crash course in all aspects of the filmmaking process. By the end of the course you will have developed your filmmaking skills and experienced working in collaboration with like-minded filmmakers to create a short film.
Day One Session 9.00am-4.00pm
Day Two Morning session 9.00am-1.00pm
Make a short Film
The best and most rewarding way for a group to learn filmmaking is by making a short film. Therefore day two will be dedicated to making and editing a short piece of film using some of the methods and ideas outlined on day one.
Our work with the group is very ‘hands on’ and each member will have an important role to play as part of the crew e.g. operating the camera, sound equipment, clapper board etc.
Crew roles will be rotated as much as possible so that the group will experience every aspect of the process. The group will use broadcast quality equipment and state of the art technology and be mentored by a professional director (Gary Halliday) and one of our team of senior Camera Operator/Mentors.
Day Two Afternoon Session 2pm-4.00pm
We will demonstrate how the footage shot in the morning session, together with stock footage, stills images and music can be crafted into an engaging, entertaining and informative short film. The finished film will be uploaded to our social media channels and will be available for student’s to upload to their channels. A handout covering the workshop will be given to all students. There will be the opportunity for a Q&A session with our mentors.
You can secure your place with a deposit of £100 or pay the full amount of £499.
