Film-making Workshops

The benefits of learning to make films are huge! Film-making is a creative and energetic way to develop communication and teamwork skills, learn to be a leader, hone technical skills and make something really cool! We cover all the basics: camera operation, developing ideas for screen, video editing, sound design for film, and we have plenty of fun in the process! We provide the equipment, you provide the ideas.

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions in NSW, all our workshops will be held online in Term 4. We are keeping a close eye on the situation, and will update you if there are any changes which will allow for in person workshops at Shopfront.
