Young Persons Easter Filmmaking Workshops

Aged between 9 and 19? Have an interest or passion for film and filmmaking?

During the Easter holidays we are hosting two free workshops that will engage young filmmakers and develop their skills, creating short films based on animation and dance.


Pixelation Animation Body Poppin' Workshop

Mon 4 Apr, Thu 7 Apr, Fri 8 Apr 1.00 - 5.00

A half day workshop aimed at 9-14 year olds and inspired by the work of Norman Mclaren and the technique of pixelation combined with body poppin'.

These free workshops will use iPads (provided) for the filming and animation. It’s a chance to learn exciting dance movement techniques and be filmed OR make an exciting animation using real people as the subject – Or both!



Mon 11 Apr to Fri 15 Apr, 9.00 - 5.00

Filmdance (working title) is an exciting joint dance and film creative exploration where the two diverse mediums will collide to create a single piece of work. Filming and rehearsals will take place over Easter 2016 and participants will be expected to comit to 5 full-on intense and exciting days of rehearsal and filming.

The process of creating a dance film is collaborative and both groups will work closely together devising the concept, contributing ideas and rehearsing for the shoot including making decisions about locations and costumes.
