A fantastic opportunity for young budding amateur film makers is coming up at the beginning of May. Intended for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander high school students from the Campbelltown Area, this workshop will provide attendees with an amazing opportunity to learn a myriad of skills required for film-making.
The workshop is being held by the Australian Film, Television and Radio School. It runs for 5 days during which participants will have the opportunity to prepare a film from scratch. This will involve writing, directing, shooting, editing and acting in a short film.
Learn to differentiate between different types of film including documentaries and short films.
Achieving a desired effect can depend to a large degree on where the shot is taking place. Shooting in a studio allows for far more control over the various factors, whereas filming on location means there's a lot you can't control - weather, bystanders and more. Learn more about what goes into shooting in different places.
Script writing - also known as screen writing - is all about conveying the story effectively in a visual medium. In this workshop participants will learn more about this skill, as well as coming up with ideas for plots.
Increasingly recognized as a virtual film studio in your pocket, the smart phone is the new up-and-comer for amateur movie-making. Learn about using a camera or a smart phone to record footage and sound.
