Autumn Term 2017:
Mondays 18 Sept, 2, 9, 16, 30 Oct, 6, 13, 20, 27 Nov, 4 Dec. 7pm-9pm.
Learn all about photography and filmmaking over a series of 10 evenings at Making Space with creative professional Paul Gonella from Strong Island Media.
The course will be broken down in to two 5 week blocks, the first will be all about getting creative with photography. You’ll learn all about composition, perspectives, exposure (aperture, shutter speed & ISO) with workshops looking at texture, discovering different angles, studio lighting, light painting and much more.
You’ll have your best shots then displayed at Making Space in a special exhibition. We’ll also be looking at sharing your work online and out and about, with a Free Art Friday style art drop.
The following five weeks will be taking all of the learnt camera skills and adapting them to filmmaking.
We’ll have workshops looking at the principles of films & genre, camera shots, film crew roles, writing a script, storyboarding, filming, sound, directing and finally post production.
The final film will then be screened at the exhibition too!
By the end of this 10 week series of workshops you’ll have all of the skills you need to really unleash your creative ideas with your camera.
