“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”
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
- Post-production: the magic of the edit.
- Resource considerations for filmmaking in the classroom
Explicit Audience ?
