Video Workshops

Video Experience

Video Experience Half Day

We start the session by looking at the equipment we are using and seeing how to get the best pictures and sound from it.  Thinking about shot sizes and planning. Lots of great hints and tips. 

The young people will learn to work as a film crew and record in groups doing some vox pops on camera.  We may make a vox pop on more than one subject. 

They will also script and film pieces to camera to make the project into a short video package.

The children will be planning, scripting, filming (as a crew), being on camera and editing. 

Note: Vox pops are short opinion pieces to camera.

Video Experience Whole Day 

Building on what the young people learn the morning we will look at how to film an interview. This will involve research, writing questions, filming and editing. 

Time permitting we will then do some scripting and film links to bring together the morning and afternoon sessions in a short film.

Note: This workshop can be themed as a news or wellbeing project .It can work round a class topic too. Please discuss in advance with Jo.
