Activist Filmmaking Workshop
Reel News and Camcorder Guerrillas are teaming up to offer a video activist workshop during Document Film Festival. This short workshop aims to equip participants with the know-how needed to make their own short films and distribute them online. Course participants will explore ideas around local issues, political and community campaigning and citizen journalism.
We will cover the very basics of how to plan, film, edit and upload films to YouTube and share them using social networks, using basic camcorders, iPads, mobile phones or still cameras with widely available computer software such as iMovie. No special computer skills or previous filming experience is required.
12 participants places available.
The training will be led by members of Camcorder Guerrillas and Reel News video activist collectives.
This workshop is presented in association with GRAMNet.
