Get the "real filmmaking" experience
The five-day Real Filmmaking Workshop is the number one filmmaking workshop for young people in Australia. It is an excellent opportunity to collaborate with a group of creative young people for a ‘real filmmaking experience’. You’ll work together to take a script to screen, learn how to direct actors and experience the technical elements of filmmaking including camera, lighting, sound and editing skills – all in one week!
Your group’s vision will be realised with a screening of your short film in the AFTRS theatre for parents and friends. You’ll also receive a copy of your film for future viewing.
