We have been working with Paul Gonella from Strong Island Media for the last 5 years so obviously we’re very excited to announce a brand new 10-week Introduction to Film & Photography course which is starting next week. The course will take place over 10 Monday evenings from 7-9pm.
We chatted to Paul and asked him to break down what would be covered in the course.
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 with 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 our learn 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! 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.
The 10-week Basics of Photography & Film course is designed to suit all levels of expertise, from beginners and those with basic knowledge, to more competent and advanced students. Due to small class sizes we are able to ensure students receive sufficient individual tutor attention. Participants will need to bring their own cameras for the photography sessions and laptops for film editing.
This 10-week digital media course will cost £130.
As spaces are limited, we require advance bookings. Once payment has been made, you are guaranteed a place.
