Kicking us off with telling us about their inspiring film journeys. ‘It was great to hear that there’s lots of different ways to get into the film industry. ‘ IMG_2378.jpg smallIMG_2371.jpg smallIMG_2393

We have had many days of intense film workshops, learning lots about the film industry  – working with Director of Photgraphy,  Stil williams and Documentary Film- maker, Sam Liebmann. We have learnt some camera skills, film roles,scripting for shorts,documentary styles, started drama/documentary development and reviewed award winning films. We have been working really hard on our film ideas – We are going to produce a short drama and documentary under the theme of Hope. We have also met some more people from the industry that have been giving us great support and advise, including Sound Recordist Ronald Bailey and Documentary Director, Marina WarsamaIMG_2590IMG_2534IMG_2471

We have been busy scripting and doing all our pre-productions bits, from researching, locations, scheduling, production design, casting, storyboarding……

We are now in production ‘intense but an amazing experience’
