Film School

Twenty-five students aged from 10 to 60 learnt the craft of film making at Footprint Theatre's annual Film School in Pambula.

The Sharp Shooting workshop led advanced students from an initial story pitch through to dialogue development, location scouting, shot framing, camera, lighting and sound techniques to an on-location film shoot with camera tutor David Condon. All students took turns to direct, operate the camera, record sound and act. 

Other workshops included Acting for Screen, Production Lighting and Making an Animation.

Many of the students are looking forward to putting their new skills into practice by making a film for the YoofTube Youth Film Festival, to be staged by South East Arts.
