The first week was an introduction to the equipment followed by a ‘hands on’ session to familiarise themselves with filming, recording and editing.
Then the young creatives returned on the second week with storyboard ‘ideas’ for a short film. Splitting into two groups the children, aged between 9 and 14 years, sort out the appropriate (local) locations and devised any scripting needed.
‘Wonders of the World’ is a ‘countryfile’ style (with a twist) look at the surrounding countryside.
‘Darkness and Dancing’ is an experimental film exploring captivity and freedom.
The next ‘home schools’ series of workshops will begin in February with a 4 week introduction to audio ‘stories’. Dates and programme tbc.
