Fancy making a short film? Always wanted to try it but never knew how? Ever wondered if you could make a film using your mobile phone? Want to help us make our 100 poetry/film collaborations?
Our FREE workshops aim to take you from absolutely nothing to a completed short film in the space just one day. Run by our experienced film co-ordinator Stefanie Tan, you’ll learn everything from the absolute basics of putting together your shots right through to editing your final short together. Stefa will show you how to make the most of the tech you’ve got (whether that’s a van-load of super-hi-tech equipment or just a phone with a video camera function), and give hints and tips on the best way to adapt your chosen poem. You’ll get the chance to go out and shoot your footage, and then learn how to edit it all together to make your film complete. You don’t need any previous filmmaking experience, but if you have some, you can still come along — everyone’s welcome. You don’t need any fancy tech — again, just bring whatever you have and we’ll teach you how to use it to its full potential. You don’t have to come alone — if you have friends who are also interested in filmmaking, or if you want to work with a team, the more the merrier!
The workshops are totally FREE but we recommend bringing your own lunch (and snacks!) with you. Spaces are limited so if you’re interested in getting involved, drop us a line to firstname.lastname@example.org — we’ll also be able to help if you have questions or need more info!
Got a particular poem you want to adapt? Let us know in your email. If you want to get some ideas, you can check out all the poems on offer right here
Hope to see you there, Claire & Stefa
