Filmmaking workshops at Qube, Oswestry

Dear Blogger

Message from Qube, Oswestry forwarded by Ingrid of Oswestry Net.

NEW Intermediate Filmmaking Workshops

A series of two 2-hour Zoom workshops developing your filmmaking skills.
Tuesdays 29th June & 6th July, 10.30am-12.30pm (last day for bookings 22nd June)

Each participant will also have a 40-minute remote one-to-one support session following the workshops. This will be an opportunity to address individual questions / projects in more detail. 

Outline of the workshops

You've shot and edited your first short film(s). Use different filmmakers' viewpoints to learn how to make more professional pieces. The workshops will look at how to:

Think like a creative producer — Consider the content, style, and tone of the film you're making.
Who is it for? What budget and resources do you have?

Think like a director — What's the story? How can you tell it to your audience creatively? Plan how you'll approach the audio and visual storytelling, using the locations and resources you have.

Think like a camera operator / sound operator — What are the technical challenges you might encounter with the kit you have and where you'll be working? Plan your shoots, recording sessions, and set-ups taking these into account.

Think like an editor — How can you fulfil the brief, and realise the director's plan, with the media you've got? What editing tools do you have to improve on the visuals and sound?

The sessions will include practical time for you to try things out, and plenty of time for questions.
