Free workshops for young film makers
The workshops offer aspiring young film makers the chance to work with a professional film maker and to learn about the whole process
of producing a film - from creating a story and characters, camera shots and storyboard, through to filming and editing.
While some practical help from adults is acceptable, any films entered in the film competition must be conceived, written, directed and produced
by the youngsters themselves. Any films completed during the film making workshops may be entered in the Young Indies film competition.
