Our Discovery Days run from 10 – 6 pm, including two practical exercises. The first half of the day involved an Ideas Workshop which includes:
- Storytelling and brainstorming methods.
- Directing techniques.
- Working to a brief.
- Targeting an audience.
You will explore how to brainstorm effectively, how to use your ideas to tell a story and to influence with online video. You will be given a brief that you will work for the final exercise of the day. You will consider how to unpick and respond to a brief, and how to get your ideas across on screen.
You will be set a short filmmaking exercise which will introduce you to the basics of directing the video. Working in teams you’ll respond to the briefing over a two-hour shooting period
The second half of the day is an Editing Masterclass where you will bring your video to life working with a professional video editor. This includes:
- Workflows and vision.
- Review and critique of shot material.
- How to create an assembly edit.
- Working creatively with music and colour (time permitting).
