About the workshop
This workshop was designed for arts organisations and artists who want to understand more about the processes involved in making good short factual films for their website. It focused on the practical aspects of how to get the best from an interview, live performance and vox pops; how to structure a story and ways to put together the material to create an engaging experience for audiences.
The workshop aimed to:
- introduce delegates to the process of planning a short film: understanding the story, and choosing how to tell it in words and pictures
- equip delegates with an understanding of the craft and editorial aspects of filming
- introduce delegates to the techniques of selecting and editing filmed material
- encourage delegates to connect with each other during the course of the day and to use the relationships developed to support future activity
Delegates worked together to share their own experiences, building skills and knowledge.
Who was this workshop suitable for?
This workshop was suitable for those responsible for making short films for a website. It was aimed at those who intend to film themselves rather than to employ a crew. Suitable job titles may include: Producer, Head of Marketing or Head of Digital.
