In lieu of our residential we will be holding a week long ‘DIY Film’ project during the February mid-term break. During this week long project you will work with two filmmakers Keith Jordan and Jeda de Brí who will guide you through the process of creating a short film, from conception to post production. As well as learning the ropes on professional film equipment, this course will also have a focus on filmmaking using your own devices-sometimes the simpler the better!
Collaborate alongside other members to create your very own short film/ comic sketch!
During the week there will also be two evenings of social activity to be revealed!
Dates: 21st-25th of February
Time: 10-5 PM (with two evenings containing optional social activities ending at 8 PM)
Location: DYT House, Montague Lane
*Members who sign up must be able to commit to the full week of activity (unless otherwise cleared with Sarah or Phoebe!)*
