Students will meet weekly in small groups with teacher Jack Price on Google Hangouts and work up to the production of a film of their own.
They will learn to develop their writing, pre-production, photography, sound, editing and post-production skills through a course designed to deliver a film for each participant.
Students will have scheduled tasks which they will work towards completing weekly. They will upload scripts, plans, current footage and rough cuts for feedback. The course will run for a minimum of three months and the films made will be shown online and sent to broadcasters during the coronavirus pandemic.
A screening event, where participants will meet in person will take place when the crisis is over.
Due to the virtual nature of the course, it will suit self-starters and artistic explorers. Any type of film can be made, the choice is entirely up to the student. From documentary to drama, from computer to drawn animation to abstract art films. All films will be made under the government’s restrictions. Restrictions are good for making films.
