Whether you are a novice looking for a primer on all the aspects of making a film, a veteran who needs a refresher or help with advancing their skills, or just a movie goer interested in the behind-the-scenes process, this one day workshop is the perfect place to get a feel of what it takes to create short films that can be entered in film festivals.

  1. Label everything with your name. 
  2. Pre-charge your devices and bring any necessary charging cable+powerplug, batteries, media (eg SD cards etc)
  3. Have enough free space on your device to film and edit video (back your device up at home before clearing space!)
  4. Pre-install any apps you will need
