Digital Filmmaking Summer Camp - Online The youth film is running a one week online Summer School . It takes place over five sessions, and participants will join in over with ZOOM video conferencing.
This is an interactive group and the aim is to make a short film over the week. The course will be run by Ewan Gorman, who has directed two feature films and numerous documentaries. Full enhanced DBS check is available on request.
The age range for the summer school is 12-16 years. We will also run a separate group for Primary school age. Two people can join with one 'seat', if there is more than one youngster at your end who wants to join.
5 Sessions: 5 x 1hr The sessions will last one hour a day online, but there is be plenty of tasks to be getting on with between sessions.
No prior knowledge of filmmaking is required, as we will start from the basics. All participants must have the use of a tripod and camera/smart phone. Access to a Laptop or tablet for editing.
Please note we will use a free application for editing. Finished films will be put in the Youth Film School screening room, on our Vimeo account.
Some of the topics that will be cover include:
