Making a short film for your website
Date: Wednesday 19 September 2012
Venue: mac Birmingham, Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham, B12 9QH
Times: 9.30am - 6.00pm
This workshop is aimed at arts organisations and artists who want to understand more about the processes involved in making good short factual films for their website.The focus will be 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.
Delegates will be encouraged to share their own experiences and work together to build skills and knowledge.
This workshop will be run by BBC Academy trainers; Colin Savage and Mark Batey.
We need your help:
The workshop will include sessions on filming an interview and filming a live performance. We want to root this filming in the experiences of the arts sector, therefore we are looking for a delegate who is able to talk about the artistic elements of a past or current production.
We would like this delegate to take part in a filmed interview (discussing the artistic elements of a past or current production) and also to arrange a a short (approx three minute) rehearsal or performance by two actors/dancers/performers during the workshop. The performance will be filmed and intercut with the interview. A small budget is available to cover the associated costs and the material can be made available to you at the end of the day for use on your website.
Please advise when booking if you are able to offer this support or would like to discuss it in more detail.
Who is this event suitable for?
