"If one wants to reach younger people at an earlier age to shape their minds in a critical way, you really need to know how ideas and emotions are expressed visually"

~ Martin Scorsese, director and filmmaker

This workshop will focus on developing visual literacy through narrative filmmaking. We’ll look into film grammar and how a film can be read as carefully and consciously as a story or poem. We’ll then cover practical approaches to film production and postproduction that have been democratised through the mobile technology available in our classrooms.

The session will cover:

  • How to read a film: an introduction to film grammar and interpreting images using examples from cinema.

  • Production: how to shoot a simple scene using a mastershot/coverage approach with a small production crew.

  • Post-production: the magic of the edit.

  • Resource considerations for filmmaking in the classroom

Audience: Anyone interested in using film and learning aboit how to empower groups of student filmmakers.
