We are pleased to announce that expressions of interest for our third 13 week course are now open. Students on this list will get first preference for places in 2019. Note-payment is NOT REQUIRED FOR AN EXPRESSION OF INTEREST.
In these workshops students will learn how to plan, shoot and edit a short film. Students will work together in a group on one film. Filming may take place during workshop times as well at other times. Finished films can be submitted to the MyState Financial Student Film Festival and go in the running to win prizes. We will also have our own special edition Youth Film Festival celebration in December.
The workshops are being lead by Brianna Lori, an experienced teacher and keen film maker. She will be supported by Michael Gissing, a multi AFI award winning film maker, Michael will be assisting in the more technical aspects of the film making.
We aim to teach a method of film making that is accessible and easy for students to continue to practice after the completion of the workshops. Students will use free software and the NEW Community Sound Kit. The Community Sound Kit has been funded by the Huon Valley Community Bank Branches to to enable ongoing film making (pod casts, radio etc) by our local community.
Please complete the form below. Numbers are limited to ten students, we hope that every one can get a place but if not, unsuccessful applicants will be offered places in the second delivery of the workshops later in 2019.
Numbers are strictly limited to ten students per course and are for students in grades 5-8
Course fees are $130 per student.

March 12th-April 15th is when the film will be shot. Some flexibility could be needed for ‘out of hours’ film shoots. We plan to work within the Cygnet Township, but depending on the script the students write there may need to be a night shoot or a weekend shoot.
