× This is a practical, fast-paced course where participants work together to create a short film. With an emphasis on professional team roles, it’s a great way to learn about camera work, audio recording, project management/creation and editing. Space is limited and priority given to returning participants. New participants will be trained in film-making skills through practical on-set experience and integrated closely with those already working in the areas they are interested in.
