Tues 6 June 2017, 10am - 4pm
Free, public event
Celebrate the start of summer with a film making workshop with internationally recognised film teachers and documentary film makers Juliet Brown and Rani Khanna.
We will use a range of cameras to create short documentary stories in ash trees and landscapes, centering on the ash. This workshop will provide practical tips on building stories, interviewing subjects and capturing nature on film. The workshop will explore some techniques in the morning and in the afternoon we will build stories and create some short films, you will need to bring a camera to shoot on and if you are working on your iphone or smart phone it is advisable to use a selfie stick for stability. Some films made during the workshop will be edited and stories shared on our online archive of ash memories.
