Conducted in English, the workshop is aimed at learning and mastering a specific filmmaking tool, namely one of the editing apps for smartphones and tablets.
It allows basic recording and editing of movies (or music videos, or other audiovisual works). Its dizzying recent career lies in its widespread availability and ease of use, which will enable the workshop’s overarching goal of inspiring young people to create on their own.
Workshop participants will draw a single word to describe an object, prop, dialogue, or photo, and around these themes will be encouraged to construct a film piece: a music video using a favorite song, a short dialogue scene, or an avant-garde film essay.
The freedom of form is intentional and stems from the philosophy of creating out of passion, out of interest, and out of the need to tell stories of our own choosing.
