What we are offering :
Film School- 3 Day Workshop- February
A chance to work with professional actors and
directors from within the industry
Drama skills & film technique taught will include- Script
writing & reading, creating a character, story-boarding, editing, choosing
sound tracks, acting to camera, creating a crew, set dressing & building, camera work.
Young people will have access to equipment
under the supervision of adults. A short film will be created from a basic
theme, a script will be written from scratch as a group with tutor supervision,
the story will then be storyboarded, actors & crew chosen. Young people can
choose to act or work behind the scenes. The film will be shot on location in
our studio in which a set will be created. On the final day young people will
edit their film. Due to limited time there will not be an opportunity to invite
an audience to a screening. However once the film is completed it will be
uploaded as a private password protected film for parents, family & friends
to view online within two weeks of the workshops completion. Each participating
member will receive a free DVD of
their film project, extra DVD’s can
be ordered at a cost of £5 each. All actors in the film will be required to
obtain parental consent before filming starts and parents will be asked to sign
a consent & release form.
